None How to count the number and their energies of secondary electrons from ionisation

I am investigate the possible of using Geant4 to simulate the respond of ionization chamber in a proton beam. What I am interested is the secondary electrons which are generated in the ionization chamber -- their number and energies.

In order to check the secondary electron out, I implemented my approach in the method of PreUserTrackingAction () in class TrackingAction to count the number and energy for secondary electron generated in the ionization chamber.

One problem I have is that all secondary electrons generated in the ionization chamber have their energies > 1 KeV, without a single exception. Is it somehow related to the energy cut ?

Is there any better approch for counting secondary electron generated in ionization chamber ? Thank you so much in advance.
