Delay wire chamber (DWC) is a relatively inexpensive gaseous detector that enables tracking of charged particles with high resolution. Here, design and simulation of a DWC that is suitable for beam diagnostics measurements at low-energy accelerators are described. We report on the mechanical construction of such a chamber at the Kandilli Detector, Accelerator and Instrumentation Laboratory, and the tests performed with cosmic muons and radioactive sources.
