The new TOF project started in 2000 in collaboration with the Hahn-Meitner-Institut. The spectrometer - previously tested on a cold beam - has been reinstalled to a radial thermal neutron beam at the Budapest Research Reactor. The TOF monochromator system consist of a double chopper with maximum rotation speed of 12000 rpm and the two single ones with 6000 rpm. The instrument will operate with a 2-dimensional detector of 80x100cm2 in back scattering geometry, now He3 tubes are used. The first test measurements we are presenting here show that the expected resolution Δd/d ∼ 4×10-4 can be achieved.
