The Stellarator of the WENDELSTEIN 7-X (W7-X) experiment contains a system of 50 non-planar and 20 planar superconducting coils. The coils were designed by the IPP. The coil manufacturing and inspection is shared between several European enterprises and consortia. The coils consist of the winding pack embedded in a stainless steel casing and of the related instrumentation. Design details, tolerances and guarantee values and differences between the coil types are described. The features of the superconductor are described separately. Finally, the measures adopted by the W7-X project to ensure the quality of the coil design and manufacturing are indicated.
