Abstract : A multiwire proportional chamber system with a simple capacitive readout has been built to monitor the beam profile and position of charged particle beams. The system was successfully used in a 1 cm diameter proton beam of intensity 10 to the 5th power--10 to the 11th power protons/s. Using a collimated 90Sr source it was found that the position of a beam could be determined to better than 1.5 mm. (Author)
