The specifications of a newly developed beta-spectrometer, based on full absorption Si(Li) detector and thin transmission detector, are shown. The spectrometer allows to separate effectively beta-radiation and accompanying X-rays and gamma radiation using registration of coincident events from both detectors. The spectrometer can be used for precision measurements of various beta-spectra, namely for the beta-spectrum shape study of $^{144}\rm{Pr}$, which is considered to be an advantageous anti-neutrino source for sterile neutrino searches. The preliminary results for beta spectra from $^{144}\rm{Ce}-^{144}\rm{Pr}$ decays and reconstructed antineutrino spectra are presented.
