The paper reports on measurements of pulsed high energy electrons formed by the PF 1000 device, operated at IPPLM in Warsaw, Poland. This plasma focus device is used as powerful pulse sources of particles and X-rays. When deuterium is used as a filling gas, fast neutrons originating from D-D fusion reactions can be also observed. To measure the electrons, X-rays and neutrons, we used different time- resolved diagnostics techniques, e.g. Cherenkov detectors, X-ray pinhole camera, visual quadro and streak cameras and different scintillation detectors for X- ray and neutrons. The correlations between obtained pulses and other investigated plasma - focus phenomena are discussed.
