Abstract
We constructed glass RPC modules for detecting K-L and muon in BELLE experi ment. The modules have been installed in the instrumented iron yoke outside of the solenoid coil and cover about 2000 m(2) of detectors. We report the design and construction of the detectors, including the gas distribution a nd exhaust system, the HV system, the readout electronics and DAQ system. T he performance with cosmic ray and the e(+)e(-) collision data are presente d. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
