Abstract

We describe the X-ray facility developed for the calibration of the X-ray monitor JEM-X on board the INTEGRAL satellite. The apparatus allowed the scanning of the detector geometric area with a pencil beam of desired energy over the major part of the passband of the instrument. The monochromatic radiation is obtained with the use of a double crystal monochromator at fixed exit. We discuss the facility performance.
