The exterior complex rotated Coupled-Channel formulation of potential scattering makes it possible to calculate energies and widths for a non-adiabatic model of a diatomic molecule or quasimolecule, The structure and decay pattern of a diatomic system is in this way described in a non-perturbative way. In this contribution we use the non-adiabatic form of an empirically derived potential energy curve matrix, previously used by Martin, J. Chem. Phys. 88, 1997 (1988) , for the four lowest (2)Sigma(+)-states of the CaH radical to demonstrate how one can calculate term positions as well as non-radiative decay widths in a realistic case for a large range of rovibronic levels. The differences between the previously derived Born-Oppenheimer term values  and the present non-adiabatic results are discussed and compared with previous work.
