Abstract

The ARGO-YBJ experiment at the Yangbajing Laboratory (4300 m a.s.l.) is taking data with about 1900 m2 of its carpet. The digital read-out of the RPCs, performed by means of pick-up electrodes 7 x 62 cm2 ('strips'), well suited to detect small size air showers, implies a limitation to the measurable energy of a few hundreds of TeV. In order to extend the energy range up to the knee region an analog read-out of the RPCs has been implemented. Each RPC has been equipped with two large size pads of dimensions 1.40 x 1.25 m2. The analog read-out system has been put in operation on 180 m2 of the detector, allowing a cross-check of digital and analog information. In this paper a brief description of the analog read-out system is given, and preliminary results are discussed.
