The considered versatile ESS MEBT is being designed to achieve four main goals: First, to contain a fast chopper and its correspondent beam dump, that could serve in the commissioning as well as in the ramp up phases. Second, to serve as a halo scraping section by means of various adjustable blades. Third, to measure the beam phase and profile between the RFQ and the DTL, along with other beam monitors. And finally, to match the RFQ output beam characteristics to the DTL input both transversally and longitudinally. For this purpose a set of eleven quadrupoles is used to match the beam characteristics transversally, combined with three 352.2 MHz CCL type buncher cavities, which are used to adjust the beam in order to fulfil the required longitudinal parameters.
