Quick Risk Management Solution

DELTA Consumer Safety Handheld XRF analyzers are used for rapid product and component screening to monitor compliance with CPSIA, RoHS, WEEE, EN71-3 and other regulations. They provide fast, accurate answers to take action. Already new elements, including nickel (Ni), are being considered for addition to the existing regulation timelines. The DELTA measures these and more too. Olympus follows the development of global regulations closely to ensure our analyzers and technology stay ahead of the regulatory requirements.

DELTA: In-House Portable XRF Testing Integrated within Supply Chains

Government agencies are responsible for protecting the public from unreasonable risks, such as toxicity and pollution associated with consumer products and electronics. Due to their fast, nondestructive and on-the-spot screening capabilities, Olympus handheld XRF analyzers have been chosen repeatedly by the US Customs, the FDA, the EPA, the DOE and international customs agencies when it comes to rapid screening analysis of regulated toxic elements such as lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd).

Olympus Innov-X Knows Consumer Goods & RoHS Analysis

Our high-precision analyzers dramatically reduce testing times allowing hundreds more tests per day with significantly higher confidence in site surveys. Our portable XRF analyzers measure 25+ elements per test, from Mg (12) to U (92), PPM levels to 100%.

DELTA Premium – Typical Limits of Detection (LOD) in ppm (except where noted)

Typical LODs

Typical LODs

120 s test time, 3-sigma LOD. LODs shown were determined using optimized measurement settings and interference-free standards. Actual “real-world” samples may contain interfering elements causing actual working LODs to be higher than those shown above.

The DELTA is specially designed to test consumer products and RoHS materials based on government-regulated levels of chromium (Cr), bromine (Br), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), lead (Pb) and more. Results are automatically saved and documented for compliance. Elements and action levels can be easily modified in line with current legislation. The DELTA can be applied to each link in the supply chain, e.g. manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and end users.

DELTA: The Portable XRF Edge – Not Just a Pretty Picture

In focus and on target for every shot, DELTA RoHS and consumer goods analyzers come with an integrated camera. This high resolution CMOS camera takes a snapshot of the sample analyzed for data integrity and archiving. The sample photo is saved to memory with analysis results, and can be included in the data results report. Camera can be operated at quarter or full VGA resolution for optimal clarity, even on low contrast samples.

1. Point and Shoot

Pinpoint the Right Target: 

The DELTA can isolate individual components on electronics or consumer products using its integrated CMOS camera and small spot collimator.

Use of 3 mm diameter X-ray spot collimation is available at the push of a button. An on-screen video display indicates analysis spot, and archives sample images to memory for use in comprehensive test reports.

A. Classification 

• The smart software will determine if it is Alloy, Mixed or Polymer 
• Or it can be set by the user 

B. Lead in Surface or Substrate? 

• If “Pb” on top turns blue, lead is in the Surface 
• If “Pb” at bottom turns blue, lead is in the Substrate 

C. Chemistry 

• Calculated results with +/- precision 
• Pass/Fail Results as compared to the preset Action levels for each element 
• Action level can be set by user

3. Generate Report

Result Interpretation & Certificates 

The DELTA PC reporting software facilitates immediate report generation, including analysis results, qualitative sample information, spectral information, and sample image.

Traceable documentation makes the DELTA the ideal tool for your Reasonable Testing Program (RTP).

For Results you Can Count On

The DELTA automatically determines sample type (polymer, alloy or mixed) and optimizes measurement conditions accordingly. It recognizes non-homogeneous (“mixed”) samples to alert the operator, which is critical for error-free operation. The DELTA also distinguishes Pb in the surface or in the substrate.

Public Health

Individuals tending to cropsGlobal advocacy groups work to uncover situations and materials that pose dangers to public health and well being and to determine a course of corrective action. For instance, high levels of lead (Pb), arsenic (As), mercury (Hg), chromium (Cr), cadmium (Cd) and other toxic metals can be found in the domicile and play areas of peoples in developing countries where the knowledge of their danger are not yet known or where regulations are simply not yet feasible. Handheld XRF analyzers are used to quickly ascertain the presence and quantity of these contaminants. This allows world health advocacy groups to determine a course of corrective action to help developing countries prosper with local resources and with safe working practices.

Consumer Product Safety 

XRF analyzers facilitate consumer products safety through rapid toxic metals screening of toys, jewelry, clothing, consumer electronics and other commodities to gauge compliance with HR4040, CPSIA, RoHS, WEEE, and EN71-3 regulations. Immediate lead, cadmium, and halogen screening.
