The High-Acceptance Di-Electron Spectrometer (HADES) operates at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt with pion, proton and heavyion beams provided by the synchrotron SIS18. In summer 2014, HADES took data using a pion beam on carbon and polyethylene targets. A large part of the data was taken at a pion beam momentum of 0.69 GeV/c in order to explore di-pion and di-electron production in the second resonance region and the sub-threshold coupling of the ρ to baryonic resonances. In this contribution lepton identification will be discussed as well the purity of reconstructed e+e−. Finally we will show the preliminary di-electon raw spectra.
