Which system do I buy?

Depending on your company's capability in both hardware and software for XRF systems, there are several choices for detectors and electronics.

Options 1 and 2 below are fairly easy to implement. Options 3, 4, 5, and 6 are listed in increasing difficulty to implement, and are recommended for XRF experts in the field who can provide both hardware and software engineering support.

Amptek provides several choices for detectors. All Amptek detecotrs (Si-PIN, SDD, or CdTe) can be used in the below configurations. See Detector Selection Guide. The 6mm2/500um, 13mm2/500um and 25mm2/500um detectors are excellent choices for RoHS/WEEE applications.

Amptek also provides optional XRF-FP Quantitative Analysis software.

Follow the flow chart below for the various options. Each Option is then described in detail below.

NOTE:


Option 1: X-123 or X-123SDD

The X-123 and X-123SDD are the best complete systems for OEM applications for fast entry to the market. The unit is completely packaged and only requires a +5VDC power supply and a USB or RS232 connection to a computer. The X-123 represents the culmination of 14 years of X-ray detector development at Amptek. Our philosophy has always been to create small, low power, high performance instruments while keeping them simple to operate. The X-123 exemplifies this philosophy by providing in a single package the XR100 X-Ray Detector and Charge Sensitive Preamplifier, and the DP5 Digital Pulse Processor & MCA with its PC5 Power Supply.

Includes

  1. X-Ray Detector (SDD, Si-PIN, CdTe) and Preamplifier
  2. Digital Pulse Processor & MCA
  3. Power Supply

Features of the X-123

  • Simple to Operate
  • Low Power (1.2 Watts)
  • Small Size
  • Light Weight - 180 g (6.3 oz.)
  • USB and RS232 Communication
  • Accommodates all Types of Amptek Detectors

    Option 2: XR-100 and PX5

    The XR-100CR and the XR-100SDD can paired with the PX5. This is the most powerful and versatile system for high end table-top XRF analyzers. This is physically the largest configuration, but offers the best performance. Both the XR100 and the PX5 are fully packaged with standard connectors.

    Option 3: XR-100, DP5, PC5

    The XR-100CR or XR-100SDD with the DP5 and PC5 is an option that requires some assembly and possibly a custom enclosure depending on the application on the part of the customer.

    Option 4: AXR Detector (Si-PIN, SDD, or CdTe), PA-210 or PA-230 Preamplifier, DP5, PC5

    The AXR/PA210/DP5/PC5 as shown in Figures 4, and 7 below is equivalent to the X-123 without any enclosures and packaging. The customer needs to assemble the system and provide custom heat-sinking for the AXR detector and custom enclosures for the AXR/PA210 and for the DP5/PC5 in order to avoid electronic interference.

    Option 5A: XR100

    The XR100 box alone is for experts in the field. It consists of only the detector (Si-PIN, SDD, or CdTe) and preamplifier. The customer needs to provide several external power supplies, a shaping amplifier and MCA, or a digital processor, and communication with the host computer.

    Option 5B: AXR/PA-210 or AXR/PA-230

    The AXR/PA210 or AXR/PA-230 alone, is for experts in the field. Any Amptek detector can be used (Si-PIN, SDD, or CdTe). There are many options for this configuration as can be seen in the picutres below. The customer either needs to provide custom heat-sinking and a custom enclosure for the AXR/PA210 or AXR/PA210, or order the housings shown below. Additionally, the customer needs to provide several external power supplies, a shaping amplifier and MCA, or digital processor, and communication with the host computer.

    Option 6: X-123 or X-123SDD modified for use with PA210/PA230

    This option is the same as the X-123 except the detector/preamplifier have been removed from the electronics box and connected with a flexible cable. Provided in order to operate the detector remotely from its electronics box. Any Amptek detector can be used including Si-PIN, SDD, or CdTe.

    Custom Detectors/Preamplifiers

    The XR-100 series of detectors (Si-PIN, SDD, or CdTe) can be miniaturized for applications where the detector/preamplifier volume must be kept to a minimum. Amptek can create custom preamplifiers to meet the design requirements of the OEM.
