XRF Analyzer EA1000VX

The EA1000VX is designed to meet the recent requirements for environmental regulation; easily and quickly measuring hazardous substances. High-speed measurement and various new functions greatly improve inspection efficiency.


High speed measurement

Measurement time has been dramatically improved over standard instruments: one tenth for metal samples and one third for plastic samples compared with the conventional model SEA1000AII. This results in far greater overall throughput.

Note: Total measurement time is defined as the time required to reach a detection limit of 20ppm for Cd, and 100ppm for other elements (measured under Hitachi High-Tech's recommended conditions).

High Count Rate Detector (Vortex®)

The EA1000VX is equipped with the world's best high count rate detector "Vortex" which detects at a rate of 150,000 cps and does not require LN2, resulting in an unprecedented level of sensitivity and resolution.

New version of Hazardous Substance Measurement Software with a variety of new functions - Sample material determination function -

The software automatically dertermines the sample materials and selects suitable inspection condition.

Improved Operability - Operation panel -

The user can monitor the measurement status via the progress bar on the Operation Panel as well as the sound indicators.

A variety of standard reference samples

A variety of standard reference samples developed and manufactured in-house are available; those include not only for the RoHS restricted elements (Cd, Pb, Hg, Br, and Cr), but also for other elements such as chlorine (Cl), antimony (Sb) and tin (Sn) and so forth.

Sample Changer (Optional)

The optional sample changer enables the continuous measurements of up to 12 samples.

Data and trend management by the Hazardous Substance Measurement Software Ver.2

Software manages the data (retrieval, browsing, analysis, editing, printing, and report preparation) measured by one or more instruments, allowing higher inspection efficiency and cost reduction.
