A beam profile monitoring system based on the imaging of low energy electrons created when the ion beam impinges on a metal plate was built to monitor the beam profile and to cover the wide range of beam intensities and energies for the DESIREE (Double ElectroStatic Ion Ring ExpEriment) beam line diagnostics. The spatial resolution of the system was tested with different beams of various energies and was found to be around 2 mm. A significant steering effect on the ion beam before hitting the metallic foil was observed at low energies.
