A new neutron powder diffractometer with high counting efficiency was put into operation at the refurbished 10 MW Budapest research reactor in 1994. For data collection linear position sensitive 3He detector system is used. The detector assembly is mounted on the diffractometer arm and it spans a scattering angle range of 28°. The entire diffraction spectra can be measured in four steps. The characteristic features of the diffractometer is given and its perfomance is illustrated.
