The measurement of thermal neutrons generated by cosmic ray extensive air showers (EAS) on the Earth’s surface provides a new method for studying the composition and energy spectrum of cosmic rays at the so-called "knee" region. The electron-neutron detector (EN-detector) utilizing a new type scintillator based on a compound alloy of ZnS(Ag) and B2O3 with natural boron is developed. At present 2 clusters (each consists of 16 detectors) are kept at the laboratory in Hebei Normal University (HNU). The performance test of the EN-detector mainly focuses on role of the cone, and the detector noise level.
