This is an NA49 internal note, supporting the $dE/dx$ analysis for the kaon spectra published in the PRC article [1], and in a PRL draft that is circulating in the collaboration now (June 2006). The aim of this note is to document the analysis in some detail, both as a reference for future questions about this analysis and to provide a starting point for future analyses in this area.

The original analysis at 40, 80 and 160 GeV is also documented in my Ph.D. thesis [2].
