  The CNAO (Centro Nazionale di Adroterapia Oncologica) Foundation is the first Italian center for deep hadrontherapy. Since 2011, more than 2000 patients have been treated using Protons and Carbon ions. During the last 3 years an experimental line for research purposes has been built. The experimental line is equipped with three Scintillating Fibers with Photodiode array (SFP) detectors. The SFP is a profile and position monitor, whose sensitive part is made up of two harps of scintillating fibers. Each fiber is readout by a cell of a photodiode array. The SFP has been developed from the Scintillating Fibers Harp (SFH) detector, the monitor presently installed along the CNAO extraction lines. The passage to the SFP results in a significant advantage in terms of cost, dimension, acquisition rate speed and flexibility. On 19th May 2019 the first beam was extracted in the CNAO experimental room and first in line beam measurement was performed with the SFP. The present work describes the SFP detectors, their achieved performances and the results obtained by means of the most recent beam measurements, performed during experimental line commissioning.
