Abstract A new generation of beam wire scanner (BWS), for transversal beam profile monitoring, is under development on the framework of the LHC Injector Upgrade project at CERN. Two pre-series prototypes have been built and installed in the Super Proton Synchrotron and Proton Synchrotron Booster, to assess the performance of the upgraded BWS concept. This contribution shows the outcome of the measurement campaigns carried out on the first BWS prototypes, both in the laboratory and with proton beams. An evaluation of a high dynamic range acquisition system for the measurement of the secondary showers produced by the beam-wire interaction is also presented.
