The muon anomaly $(g-2)$/2 has been measured to 0.54 parts per million by E821 experiment at Brookhaven Lab, and at present there is a 3 to 4-standard deviation difference between the SM and experimental values. A new muon $(g-2)$ experiment, E989, is being prepared at Fermilab that will improve the experimental error by a factor of four to clarify this difference. A central component to reach this fourfold improvement in accuracy is the lead fluoride calorimeter and the high-precision laser calibration system. After reviewing the requirements and the choices adopted for these systems, we will report the results of a Test Beam at performed at the Beam Test Facility (BTF) in Frascati in which a prototype of a module of the calorimeter fully equipped with electronics and the full laser calibration system will be tested with a beam of electrons of 500 MeV.
