The system for fast registration of X-ray diffraction patterns has been developed and integrated into the DRON-7 diffractometer to speed it up. The description of the set as well as technical and operational parameters of the system is given. The advantages and the limitations of the software for tuning, calibration and data collection are considered. The examples of the system applications to the X-ray diffraction studies of various polycrystalline samples are shown.
