2 Abstract Automated system of radiation safety control (ASRSC) of linear electron accelerator LINAC-800 is designed for staff securing during regular accelerator operation and in emergency cases. Emission power calculation results used in ASRSC development are given. Both hardware and software components of radiation control system are described. Also, interlock and signalization system description is presented. Radiation Protection at Linear Electron Accelerator LINAC-800. M. Nozdrin, JINR LHEP.2/12 September 17-21, Alushta, Ukraine

3 Introduction Linear accelerator of electrons LINAC-800 is based on a part of accelerator equipment which was transferred to the possession of JINR by The National Institute for Nuclear Physics and High Energy Physics (NIKHEF, Amsterdam). It should be mentioned, that radiation control equipment was not transferred because it is not certified for usage in Russia. Maximum electron energy, MeV800 Pulse duration, us1 – 10 Pulse repetition rate, Hz3 – 10 Pulse current, mA40 Average leakage currents during operation, uA0.4 Emergency charge losses in a 1-10 us time, nCless than 50 Accelerator length, m200 September 17-21, Alushta, Ukraine Radiation Protection at Linear Electron Accelerator LINAC-800.
