Channel The two apertures of the double bore magnets form two channels of the LHC. Each arc has one outer and one inner channel.
Cold Mass The cold mass refers to the part of a magnet that needs to be cooled by the cryogenic system, i.e. the assembly of magnet coils, collars, iron yoke and Helium vessel.
Crossings The two machine channels cross at the experimental insertions, i.e. at IP1, IP2, IP5 and IP8.
Cryo magnet Complete magnet system integrated into one cryostat, i.e. main magnet coils, collars and cryostat, correction magnets and powering circuits.
