The design and the performance of a non-magnetic detector setup for internal target physics at the NIKHEF electron-scattering facility is described. The detector setup, used in the first internal-target experiment at the AmPS ring, measures the spin dependence in the elastic and break-up reaction channels from tensor polarized deuterium. It has been established that the detector setup can operate adequately in an internal target environment at luminosities up to 10(32) e(-) atoms cm(-2) s(-1). Results and measured resolutions are presented.
