Abstract
The scientific model of the SAX Medium Energy Gas Scintillation Proportional Counter has been tested at the PANTER X-ray facility in Munich. For part of the test the detector has been coupled to a representative reduced model of the SAX concentrators model. The results from the tests on both the detector and the detector/mirror assembly are within the expected performances. We have measured an energy resolution of about 8% (FWHM) and an angular resolution (on axis) of 1.3 arcminutes (HPR) at 6.4 keV.
