A brief description is given of an economical implementation of the read out of a two-dimensional detector in an electron spectrometer by a charge coupled device camera, using a pulse counting mode. Count rates up to 10 kHz can be handled in this way. A comparison with results obtained using a resistive anode detector is given for the case of electron scattering from Xe atoms. Good agreement was obtained between both detection techniques, establishing the validity of the method described here.
