The heavy ion synchrotron SIS100 utilises fast ramped
superconducting magnets. Describing and measuring these
magnets requires advanced multipoles next to well adapted
measurement techniques. We cover briefly the required theory
adapted to the measurements, show which designs were
available and which decisions had to be taken for measuring
curved superconducting magnets. The series of SIS100
dipole magnets is going to be produced. These magnets will
be measured at GSI. We present the foreseen field measurement
procedure, outline the currently ongoing tests and give
our calibration strategy.
