The performance of the magnetic system of a 12 MeV electron race-track microtron (RTM) which is under construction at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) is described. The RTM magnetic system consists of two four-pole end magnets with the main field level about 0.8 T, one quadrupole and four beam extraction dipoles. As a source of the magnetic field in these magnets a Sa-Co rare earth permanent magnet material is used. This helps to get a quite compact design of the RTM and allows to place the magnetic systems in a high vacuum environment of the accelerator vacuum chamber. We discuss results of numerical simulations of the tuning of the end magnets by mean of special tuners and describe their engineering design which permits to assemble the magnets and fix the Sa-Co blocks without gluing. Also a method and results of magnetic field distribution measurements and magnet tuning are reported.
