Turkish Accelerator and Radiation Laboratory in Ankara (TARLA) facility is a superconducting linac-based infrared free-electron laser light source in the frame of Turkish Accelerator Center (TAC). Construction of the facility premises was completed in 2009, with a continued progress of hardware and infrastructure installation until today. In this respect, a button type beam position monitor (BPM) is designed, produced and tested for use of TARLA facility. Antenna simulations and mechanical design studies based on TARLA electron beam parameters are carried out by the software computer simulation technology. In this paper, its design and production highlights are discussed in detail, and the original results are summarized.
