A new Delta E-E CAlorimeter TElescope, CATE, has been developed to identify the reaction products from secondary fragmentation reactions or Coulomb excitation. Radioactive relativistic beams with energies between 90 and 400 McV/u and instantaneous rates of up to 5 x 10(4) particles/s bombarded the detector system. CATE distinguishes the reaction channels in terms of charge (Z) and mass (A) and gives position information about the impinging ions, used for impact parameter determination.
