AB  - In J-PARC Linac, beam study (including beam conditioning) is mainly performed using beam dump. A beam window is installed in the beam line to each beam dump. It is considered that the parameters of acceptable beam to able to be injected the beam window are the 50 mA current, the 100 micro-sec width and the 2.5 Hz repetition. On the other hand, at beam study of Linac, the beam with higher power than these parameters are not used. Therefore, the beam study was started and performed only after the operator checked that the beam parameters are within the acceptable values. However, at the beam study of 2018, a beam windows of 0-degree dump was cracked because the beam that exceeds acceptable parameters was injected due to human error. Then, beam study using 0-degree dump was impossible at all. And, in order not to cause such accident again, we began to develop the beam window protection system. Moreover, as soon as possible, implementation of the system was required. Therefore, we designed and developed this system by improving it based on the particle management system which can measure all 25 Hz beam. We have developed a beam window protection system that monitors the beam current for each shot and accumulated beam current for a prescribed time and inhibits the beam by MPS when either value exceeds the threshold. Moreover, we succeeded in developing and implementing this system in a short time. This paper is described about development and function test of beam window protection system.
