  The TRIUMF Ion Source and Injection System (ISIS) beamline is used to transport the 300 keV H beam from the ion source to the injection into the 500 MeV cyclotron. The vertical section of the beamline, upgraded in 2011, is very robust and reliable, while the horizontal section, now 50 years old, is very demanding in maintenance, and presents a high risk of downtime due to aging. The horizontal beamline is being re-designed with well proven optical concepts, and modern UHV technologies already used in the vertical section, and in the ARIEL RIB transport system; this will produce a more efficient system, easier to maintain and tune. The beamline will use electrostatic optical modules like matching, periodic, and 90-degree achromatic bend sections; updated elements include bunchers, a high-energy pulser, a 5:1 selector, and a new set of diagnostics. A crucial aspect of the new beamline is a magnetic shield, to compensate the cyclotron stray field, comprised of a mu-metal in-vacuum liner allowing HV feedthroughs and diagnostics insertion without breaking the shield continuity. The new injection beamline will be controlled via EPICS. The paper will present the status of the project.

Frequent linac re-tuning is needed at TRIUMF-ISAC for the delivery of rare isotope beams at a variety of mass-to-charge ratios and beam energies. This operation is of appreciable complexity due to the nature of the accelerator, consisting of a separated function, variable output energy DTL paired with an RFQ. Reference tunes, computed from a variety of beam and accelerator simulation codes, are scaled according to the beam properties, though changing beam parameters at the sources requires manual tuning of matching section quadrupoles. Using an end-to-end envelope model of the machine in the code TRANSOPTR, these tunes can now be rapidly computed, and using beam diagnostic inputs to reconstruct the beam matrix, the model can be used to dynamically re-optimize the machine tune on-line.
