A ~1 sr solid angle detector for protons of up to ~200 MeV, and for pions of up to ~250 MeV energy is described. The detector has been developed to provide a charged particle trigger for use in (gamma,2N) and (gamma,piN) experiments with tagged photons at the MAMI-B 850 MeV electron microtron in Mainz. The design is based on a smaller detector previously used at lower energies at the 180 MeV MAMI-A accelerator. Many improvements have been made which will increase the performance of PIP with respect to the earlier detector. Positive pions which are stopped in the detector will be identified by looking for delayed pulses from the e+ in the pion decay chain.
