The focal plane detector of the MAGNEX large acceptance magnetic spectrometer is presented. It is based on a large low-pressure gas-filled tracker followed by a wall of silicon detectors to stop the particles. It has been designed for the stringent requirements from the ion optics and the foreseen use with heavy ions. The performances of the device are demonstrated using 4MeV/u oxygen beams. The results of the tests are described and discussed in view of the application of the particle identification and trajectory reconstruction techniques to recover the kinematic properties of the reaction products. They demonstrate the suitability of such detector in a wide range of experiments where low-energy thresholds, large-accepted solid angle, precise momentum measurement and good particle identification are needed.
