The atomic numbers and mass numbers of superheavy elements produced in the reactions of $$^{48}$$Ca beam with actinide targets have not been identified with direct experimental evidences. This causes a little doubt about a new element synthesis. The aim of this study is to identify the atomic numbers of those superheavy elements through characteristic X-ray measurements. To produce and separate superheavy elements, we employed a gas-filled separator TASCA at GSI, and constructed high-efficiency $$alpha$$-$$gamma$$-electron multi-coincidence detector setup at the focal plane of TASCA. Transmission efficiencies and focusing abilities were tested experimentally, and compared with simulations. We achieved a good performance to realize X-ray measurement for the element 115.
