KARMEN is a 56 t scintillation calorimeter designed for beam dump neutrino experiments at the neutron spallation facility ISIS of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. The calorimetric properties are demonstrated by cosmic muons and laser calibration. The measured energy resolution of the detector is σE/E ≈ 11.5%/√E[MeV], the position resolution σx = 5 cm and the timing resolution σt ≈ 350 ps.
