The JT-60U magnet system will be upgraded to the superconducting coils (JT-60SA) in the Broader Approach (BA) project. The JT-60SA magnet system has 18 Toroidal Field (TF) coils, a Central Solenoid (CS) with 4 modules and 6 Equilibrium Field (EF) coils. The CS conductors are designed with Nb$$_{3}$$Sn cable in conduit (CIC) conductor because the magnetic field of CS is up to 8.9 T. The short CS conductor was manufactured and processed into the performance verification test sample. The Tcs test results indicate that the initial Tcs of the CS conductor is about 2 K higher than the minimum requirement of the conductor design. In addition the Tcs after the repetition excitation is more important issues for the CS conductor because the CS conductor is made of Nb$$_{3}$$Sn strand. The Tcs changes with the repetition excitation and the influence of the warm up and cool down process on the Tcs were measured. The test results show that there is no degradation while the repetition excitation tests. The AC loss test of the CS conductor was also performed for precise estimation of the conductor heat loads. The Tcs margin analysis of the CS conductor was conducted based on the latest conductor heat loads. The analysis results show that the CS conductor has enough Tcs margin during the JT-60SA operation. These results show that the design and the manufacturing process of the CS conductor satisfy its requirements. Thus CS conductors for the CS1 module have been manufactured on the mass production process. In this paper, the Tcs test, the repetition excitation test, the AC loss test and the Tcs margin analysis of the CS conductor are described.
