A high mass-resolution TOF-ERDA system installed at RILAC of RIKEN is presented. The target chamber was designed for TOF-ERDA. A charged-particle detector and a time detector for TOF measurements were installed in the chamber. The data-acquisition system, comprising CAMAC modules, is controlled by a personal computer. The analysis of the spectra is performed off-line. The mass resolution of the system for masses of around A = 28 was evaluated to be 1.9. H, C, N and O in a PIQ film could be measured simultaneously, and the peaks of C, N and O were separated.
