The ISAC Separated Function DTL is designed to accelerate ions of 3<=A/q<=6 to energies fully variable between 0.15 to 1.5MeV/u. The DTL includes five IH-tanks for acceleration at 0 degrees synchronous phase with quadrupole triplets between tanks and triple gap split ring bunchers before tanks 2, 3, and 4 to provide periodic transverse focussing and longitudinal focussing respectively. The final configuration of the DTL is due for commissioning in Dec. 2000. Recently a beam test with the first section of the DTL comprising the first tank, a triplet and the first buncher has been completed. This paper will report the experimental set-up and the results of the tests.
