The ITER Conductor Procurement Arrangement requires that all the conductors have to be qualified before the production phase. The objects of the work here presented are the Poloidal Field Coils conductors, specifically the PF1/6 and the PF2 conductors. The realization of the samples comprised the jacketing, the compaction and the straightening of the CICC, together with the design and manufacturing of the bottom hairpin box and the upper termination. The instrumentation and the related jacket machining completed the preparation of the samples. The samples have been assembled according to the specification defined by ITER and have been shipped to SULTAN facility. This paper describes all the activities performed during the preparation, the features of the samples and all the related issues. © 2010 IEEE.
