The UVX storage ring is a second-generation 1.37 GeV synchrotron light source. The injection system includes a 120 MeV linear accelerator and a 500 MeV booster synchrotron. The machine operates in decay mode and most of the beam lines are based on dipole magnets. Two RF stations are used to supply energy for the electron beam, each station including a single cell room temperature accelerating cavity and a 50 kW solid state amplifier operating at 476 MHz. The storage ring is housed in a temperature controlled tunnel and feedback systems are used to keep the beam orbit stable during the user shifts. Two diagnostics beam lines are used to monitor the beam.
