introducing the all new, TRACER 5i pXRF spectrometer; ideal for Methods Development, Research and Complex Materials.
TRACER 5i is the high value in-situ pXRF performer synchronizing power, function, precision and accuracy for dynamic, field capable laboratory-like elemental analysis.
Complete user control
The TRACER 5i allow complete user control of the excitation conditions. These can be developed using recommended settings in the software or user preferences.
Sample spot size
Vacuum, Helium or air
The TRACER 5i settings and measurements can be controlled on the handheld or with Artax? advanced spectral analysis PC software, via WiFi or USB.
Users can also develop their own calibrations with EasyCal PC software for empirical correlations. These can be transferred to the TRACER 5i ?operating system for point-and-shoot tests.
