A new beam profile monitoring system (BPM) was developed for the Proton Synchrotron East Area Irradiation Facility at CERN. This new BPM provides 50 channels of low noise acquisition for connection to a pixelated detector consisting of thin foil copper pads positioned on a flex circuit. Five separate data acquisition systems were assembled and delivered to CERN. The systems are fully operational and have been used for sample alignment during proton irradiations in 2014 and 2015. We will present the design of the BPM system and results on its performance during these irradiation periods.
