A multi-wirescanner for diagnostics of ionizing particle beams (e.g. both non-relativistic and ultra-relativistic charged particles; X-ray and gamma photons) is proposed and discussed in the paper. The scanner is based on measurement of yield of characteristic X-rays generated during the particle interaction with the wires made of different materials. The proposed scanner is developed and tested on the beam of electrons with energy of 40 keV . The quasimonochromatic characteristic X-rays and continuous background are clearly identified. The results of measurements of the transverse size, emittance, position and direction of beam propagation are presented and discussed.
