Portable Micro-XRF Spectrometer
The portable X-ray fluorescence solution for elemental analysis of large objects
The ELIO is a compact and portable energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer for reliable non-contact and non-destructive elemental analysis of valuable materials. It delivers high performance, accuracy and precision in the most demanding applications. The ELIO accelerates state-of-the-art in XRF analytical instrumentation with truly portable elemental map acquisition incorporating CUBE technology, accurate spot positioning, straightforward add-on hardware and mapping software.
ELIO’s software display is user configurable and shows the spectrum and the element concentration while the acquisition is running. In the same screen, the user can monitor other technical information as well as the sample image taken by video cameras.
The compact design of the measurement head mounted on a light-weight aluminum tripod makes the ELIO ideally suited for mobile use. The total weight of the measurement head is just 2.1 kg. Several tripod options are available to meet varying user requirements. An optional compact motorized XY stage provides a truly field portable mapping solution.
Easy and fast non-contact measurements
The ELIO features a simple and elegant design with a 1 mm laser-positioned analysis spot, an internal camera and innovative electronics. The measurement head is mounted on a tripod with two motorized stages to perform elemental map acquisition. Its narrow nose enables access to measurement points difficult to reach. The large area silicon drift detector (SDD) with CUBE technology provides excellent throughput and signal-to-noise ratio, which ensures very fast analysis at excellent energy resolution.
