Mini-tower beam tests were carried out at a test beam line of KEK-PS in order to study the performance of the prototype level-1 trigger system and drift tubes with field-shapers originally designed for the SDC barrel muon detector at the SSC. A mini-tower of 10 layers, 31 drift tubes in total, and a prototype level-1 trigger module were designed and fabricated for the tests. The spatial resolution of about 230 μm was obtained for the tubes. Relatively high rates of multi-pulse signals were observed for most of the tubes. The trigger module designed at KEK using a logic delta-T method was studied for various trigger logics and its performance was found to be very satisfactory.
