  A chopping and deflecting system has been designed and developed to provide the chopped beam with various repetition rates at the IUAC experimental facilities. It consists of four pairs of deflecting plates with increasing gap from 15 mm to 21 mm to maximize the effective electric field, preserve the beam emittance and to maximize the transmission efficiency within the same voltage conditions. The design of CDS has been validated with various simulation codes like CST MWS, Solid Works, Python and TRACE 3D. The deflecting plates have been fabricated, and assembled with in the design accuracy of 100 microns. A vacuum chamber has been designed and fabricated to incorporate the deflector plate assembly. The CDS unit has been installed in the Low Energy Ion Beam Facility at the IUAC to validate the design value of ion beam deflection. A slit has been installed to cut the deflected charge particles. Since the pulse power electronics required for chopping is presently under design we have used DC voltage across the four pairs of deflecting plates and amount of deflection was measured accordingly. The design, development, and DC beam test will be discussed in the article.
