  The High Acceptance Di-Electron Spectrometer experiments at GSI (HADES) require high-intensity heavy ion beams. Monitoring and minimization of the beam losses are critical for the operation at the desired beam intensities. FAIR-type Beam Loss Monitor (BLM) system based on sixteen plastic scintillator detectors is installed along the beam line from the SIS-18 synchrotron to the experiment location. The detectors are used in counting mode, with maximum counting rate of order of 20 MHz. The system has been commissioned during the 2018 beam time. Details on the detector setup, its calibration procedure and how it can be used for quantitative beam loss determination are presented.
