Power and Performance in a Portable Package. For those who demand benchtop analytical power with the ease of portability, Innov-X offers the field-rugged, closed-beam X-5000 for on-site analysis in virtually any environment. The X-5000 offers true portability with a high level of power and performance; our advanced 3-beam (kV-mA-filter settings) method and the latest in detector technology – an innovative, large area Silicon Drift Detector (SDD), used and tested extensively in high-end laboratory based instrumentation. Use it as your primary XRF analyzer, your lab XRF back up, your screening tool or your field inspection XRF system. The X-5000 is offered with two different x-ray tube anode choices. A tantalum (Ta) anode x-ray tube configuration is utilized for excellent sensitivity measuring 25+ transition metals including Cd, Ag, Au, Pb, Cr, and even Rare Earth Elements. A rhodium (Rh) anode configuration is offered when the application calls for optimized analysis of light elements including Al, Si, S, Mg and P, along with mid range transition metals.

Functioning as a portable laboratory, this high-powered instrument is equipped with a secure closed-beam sample chamber and flexible analytical software that features a wide range of factory default and user-defined calibrations. The X-5000 offers the performance and safety of traditional benchtop EDXRF, merged with the cost-effective benefits and ruggedness of proven, portable XRF technology.

  • Integrated, portable EDXRF analyzer for fast, easy-to-use performance for immediate action in the field, on production lines, or in inspection areas.
  • Battery operated and easy to carry, ergonomic design make it a perfect choice for field use.
  • Fully integrated PC and industrialized touch screen for user-friendly operation.
  • Large, enclosed testing chamber readily handles assorted objects, standard XRF lab cups, liquid sample bottles, and bagged samples.
  • Full interlocked and closed-beam X-ray system provides users the advantages of XRF analysis in a safe portable unit.

The X-5000 Advantage Performance and Power

The X-5000 offers a high level of performance and power not typically found in field-portable systems.

  • 50 kV/10 W X-ray tube delivers extraordinary in-the-field limits of detection (LODs) from Mg through to U.
  • Innovative large-area silicon drift detector (SDD) provides high precision measurement of wide array of elements.
  • Six-position primary beam filters allow for optimal performance across the periodic table.
  • Outstanding performance for light elements without vacuum or helium purge.
  • Multiple anode configurations available including:
    • Tantalum (Ta) anode configuration is utilized for excellent sensitivity when measuring over 25 heavy metals (such as Cd, Ba, Ag, Au, Pb, Sn, Sb), in addition to many rare earth elements (including La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm)
    • Rhodium (Rh) anode configuration is available for optimized analysis of light elements – such as Mg, and Al, in addition to mid-range transition metals
    • Silver (Ag) anode configuration is available for enhanced for detection limits of light elements in petroleum applications.

 

An on-board PC offers full operation of the X-5000 in any environment.

  • Large display with virtual keyboard.
  • Industrial grade color touch screen.
  • Multiple algorithm options are available, including fundamental parameters, Compton normalization, empirical calibration models, and spectral matching.
  • User-friendly interface allows for:
    • Spectral overlay
    • Easy peak identification

Get Results

Results are displayed on the industrial -grade touch screen within seconds. Data is stored automatically in a tamper-proof format. Print material test reports (MTR), or RoHS certification of compliance (CoC) directly from analyzer through a USB connection to a printer.

Flexible Configuration

Sophisticated factory-default calibrations enable you to analyze a wide variety of samples using turnkey settings. For applications with no commercially available standards or with proprietary standards, the X-5000 allows you to adjust the calibrations based on your own unique standards for control over elemental correlation.
