The UVX light source has a 6-fold symmetry DBA lattice.The magnetic lattice includes 12 1.67 T dipoles, 36 quadrupoles and 18 sextupoles. There are 6 straight sections of 2.95 m, 4 of them available for insertion devices, 3 of which are currently occupied with an EPU50 undulator, a 4T SCW60 superconducting wiggler and a 2T W80 hybrid wiggler. The machine is about 93 m long and the harmonic number is 148. A set of 18 horizontal and 24 vertical steering magnets is used by a 3 kHz fast orbit feedback system to keep the beam orbit within tolerances during the whole user beam shift.
The booster is a 2-fold symmetry racetrack synchrotron. The magnetic lattice includes 12 dipoles in two 180° FODO cell based achromatic arcs. The circumference of the booster is about one third that of the main ring and it operates at 0.2 Hz. The booster RF system includes a single cell cavity and a 2 kW solid state amplifier working at 476 MHz.
