The Nb3Sn block coil dipole magnet FRESCA2 was developed within the framework of a collaboration between CEA Saclay and CERN, in the continuity of the European project EuCARD. With an aperture of 100 mm and a target bore field of 13 T at 10.8 kA, the magnet is aimed at upgrading the FReSCa cable test facility at CERN. The design features four 1.5-m-long double-layer coils wound with a 40 strand, 21-mm-wide cable. In 2017 the first assemblies have been tested. In this paper the performance of the assemblies in terms of training behaviour, detection, protection, magnetic measurements and other cold powering tests will be discussed.
