Only since few years it has been demonstrated experimentally that NbTi based superconducting undulators (SCUs) have a higher peak field on axis for the same gap and period length in operation with electron beam with respect to permanent magnet undulators (even the ones in vacuum and cooled to cryogenic temperatures). Another advantage of NbTi based SCUs with respect to permanent magnet devices is radiation hardness, widely demonstrated for NbTi magnets, which is and will become an increasingly important issue with the small gaps in the newest machines as round beam storage rings and FELs. Moreover, SCU technology allows switching of the period length by changing the current direction in one of separately powered subset of winding packages of the superconducting coils. This feature further broadens the energy range of the emitted photons, required by the different beamlines. To this end 0.5 m long superconducting undulator coils with switchable period length between 17 mm and 34 mm have been developed. In this contribution we describe the design and report on the quench tests, as well as on the magnetic field measurements.
