In order to upgrade one of the facilities from a single test line to a double test line facility, a high power variable splitter and variable phase shifter have been designed and manufactured at CERN. They have been power tested, ﬁrst in a dedicated test and also in their ﬁnal conﬁguration, to en- sure stable power operation before installing them together with an accelerating structure. In this paper, we broadly describe the RF and mechanical design, manufacturing and low power measurements agreement with simulations. We report the high power qualiﬁcation of both components and their suitability to be used in existing and planned X-band facilities.
