For the slow extraction part of the beam diagnostics system of the Superconducting Projectile Fragment Separator (Super-FRS) of FAIR-facility a total of 32 detectors are needed. They will be used for beam monitoring, tracking and characterization of the produced ions. GEM-TPC detectors can perform over wide dynamic range without disturbing the beam and are thus suitable for this kind of in-beam detection. We present the simulations and first measurements with the GEMs of the Super-FRS GEM-TPC prototype.
