The energy of gamma rays, which are planned to be studied in the TAIGA-Muon experiment, is not less than 100 TeV. Such particles come from space very rarely, so you need arrays that can detect them over an area of one to thousands of square kilometers. Large-area muon detectors developed specifically for this experiment by scientists at Novosibirsk State University will help reliably select gamma rays from the flow of primary cosmic particles and see our Universe in the spectrum of ultra-high-energy gamma rays. In the future, it is expected that several hundred such detectors will be deploy and they will work together with other arrays of the TAIGA gamma-ray observatory. Currently, 48 such detectors are produced, established and ready for use. They are combined in three clusters – 16 detectors in each. In the autumn of 2019, the first TAIGA-Muon cluster was equipped with electronics, connected to the data acquisition system and entered into operation in test mode. The report presents an analysis of the results of testing and calibration of signals from its 8 ground and 8 underground detectors
