Background: In collaboration with the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, Huazhong University of Science and Technology is developing an oscillator-based THz free-electron laser (HUST THz-FEL). Purpose: In order to measure the magnetic field integrals of the undualtor accurately and quickly, a measurement system based on the stretch-wire method (SWM) was established. Methods: In the system, an eight and a half digital multimeter, Agilent 3458, was adopted to acquire the micro-volt voltage signal, and a Kohzu high precision positioning platform was employed to realize the high synchronized wire movement. The software of this system was implemented by LabVIEW programming Results: The field measurement system was tested in a prototype hybrid permanent undulator with 7 periods, which shows consistent results with the Hall probe mapping. The repeatability precision for first integral and second integral are better than 2.5?10?6 T?m and 2.5?10?6 T?m2 respectively. Conclusion: The system met the design requirements and will be applied to the compact THz FEL oscillator located in Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
