JAEA is responsible for procurement of the central solenoid (CS) conductor for ITER. The CS conductor is assembled by inserting Nb$$_{3}$$Sn superconductor cable into circular-in-square jacket whose material is JK2LB high manganese stainless steel developed by JAEA, and then heat treatment is carried out. In the recent study of Nb$$_{3}$$Sn strand, heat treatment for 250 hours at 570 degrees Celsius and 100 hours at 650 degrees is adopted. The effect of 250 hours at 570 degree for JK2LB has not studied yet although the region of 650 degree has already studied, and might be a cause of sensitization. So the characteristics of JK2LB jacket after heat treatment for 250 hours at 570 degree and then 200 hours at 650 degree was studied in terms of mechanical tests at 4K and metallographic tests. The mechanical test results satisfied the requirement of ITER and metallographic tests result showed no remarkable degradation. This study proved JK2LB jacket can be applicable to the heat treatment above.
