Vacuum in the arcs of the LHC is crucial to minimize beam – gas interactions and to assure thermal insulation of cryostats and helium distribution lines. Several hundred of sensors with their associated conditioning electronics are installed across the arcs for both beam and insulation vacuum measurements. Calculations predict that radiation levels will greatly increase during the HL-LHC era. Therefore, new radiation tolerant conditioning electronics for vacuum
measurements are required to withstand such conditions. This paper describes the design of these new electronics, their qualification tests and implementation within the vacuum controls architecture foreseen during the long shutdowns of the LHC.
