Hi Philippe,

indeed it is not very intuitive to use a solenoid element. That's why I opened an issue, see here: .

The normalization of the field isn't implemented in the solenoid element but in the field map. However you should be able to switch off the normalization, see here in sector A.3.

Best regards,

Hi Christof, 
  Danke sehr! it works fine now. It is just a bit "unnatural" to use the solenoid element as the scaling imposed via KS seems to be using Bz has a renormalization (while I am playing with some arbitrary 3D maps that have very weak Bz field the field component of interest are B_x, and B_y). All the best, -- Philippe.

Hi Philippe,

use the SOLENOID element for this.

  In OPAL which element allows the tracking through 3D map define in a file with the 3DMagnetoStatic header? I could not see any reference to this 3DMagnetoStatic format in any OPAL-t elements. 
  Thank you,  -- Philippe.
