A solenoid magnet using high-temperature superconductor tape was designed, fabricated, and tested for its suitability as beam scanner. After successful cooling tests, the magnet performance was studied using DC and AC currents. With DC current the magnet was successfully operated as mirror coils for a 2.45 GHz ECR ion source. The coils could be operated at 100 A and frequencies above 1 Hz. The installation of iron pole pieces and return yokes, enabled us to generate fields in excess of 2 T at 197 A DC. In AC mode this magnet can be operated in the ranges of 0.14-1.73 and 1.22-1.67 T at frequencies of 0.05 and 0.25 Hz, respectively.
