The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is responsible for the design, construction and testing of the high temperature superconductor (HTS) current leads for the stellarator Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) which is presently under construction at the Greifswald branch of the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasma Physics. Because the W7-X current leads are mounted with the warm end at the bottom a special test cryostat has been built and is attached to the main cryostat of the TOSKA facility of KIT. Two prototypes of these current leads are tested in this cryostat under W7-X relevant conditions. The test conditions with respect to cryogenic, control, current supply, data acquisition and quench detection of the test setup for the prototype test at TOSKA is described. The performance of the MC plug used to power the HTS current leads is described in detail.
