A simple system for beam positioning and spatial distribution diagnostics based on a cooled charge coupled device (CCD) camera, scintillation screen, and optics has been developed. Standard methods of recording beam profiles are different for low and high intensity beams, which complicates readout techniques. The main advantage of our system is its adaptability for intensity range 103–1012 particles/cm2/pulse. The system was tested at the Dubna synchrophasotron complex. Protons and nuclei beam profile and position monitoring in mentioned intensity range and energy range of 10 MeV to 10 GeV was provided. A CCD camera is used in wavelengths interval 400–1100 nm. The hardware, software, and cryogenics of this system are described. Effects of fixed pattern noise and dependence of nonuniformity of response on wavelength are shown and some results of beam diagnostic are presented.
