The Mont Blanc nucleon decay experiment, NUSEX,1 is situated half way along the road tunnel under Mont Blanc linking France and Italy and is at a depth of approximately 5000 m.w.e. The apparatus has been taking data for the past 16 months. Results on the contained events observed have already been reported.2,3 In this paper we describe the functioning of the magnetic monopole trigger that has recently been incorporated into the apparatus.
