Beam optics, charging system and voltage control system of the tandem accelerator at Kyushu University were modified for AMS which requests the high beam transmission for the measurements with high precision and reproducibility for the ratio of 14C/12C. The transmission of the 12C beams at the terminal voltage of 6 MV reached 48% using the stripper carbon foil of 7 μg/cm2.
