Live EDS function
Live Spectrum View is available on the TM4000 User Interface to see the X-ray spectrum with Automatically labelled peaks. It allows you to confirm elemental information with secondary electron images and/or backscattered electron images, even while moving around your sample.

High-precision and multifaceted TruMap function
- The TruMap feature allows multi-element spectra to be properly separated and background-subtracted in real time, resulting in a precise elemental mappimg with no image contamination from overlapping peaks.
- In the example shown on the right, data from Mg-K and As-L, whose peaks overlap in typical maps, are clearly resolved and free from signal overlap with the TruMap function.

Advanced Analysis Functions
The AZtecEnergy system offers advanced analytical functionality and flexible configurations with the ability to automate analyses via a motorized stage, enabling wide-area mapping and particle analysis.
The Mapping software automatically acquires data for multiple specified regions to produce a single combined set of mapping information.
