In J-PARC LINAC, the vacuum system of L3BT, which is a beam transport line connecting LINAC and 3GeV synchrotron, uses a turbo molecular pump and roots pump for rough exhaust and an ion pump for main exhaust. In addition, beam dumps are connected to the end of the L3BT at 0 degree, 30 degree, 90 degree, and 100 degree positions via vacuum partition windows. The roots pumps are used as the exhaust system for each beam dump. The roots pump controllers have been installed away from the pump in the accelerator tunnel to avoid radiation damages. Besides, the special controllers, which have no inverter circuit inside, have been used to reduce the electrical noise on the beam loss monitors nearby. However, using the special controller without inverters, several problems have occurred such as the instability or wide variability of the pumping speed. To solve such problems, the roots pump controller with the inverter circuit must be used after reducing the electrical noise. In this report, some countermeasures to reduce the electrical noise from the inverters were investigated. The noise reduction circuit was successfully optimized to the level where the beam loss monitors works unaffected.
