The Bruker TRACER 5g XRF is a handheld, portable spectrometer ideal for elemental analysis in the field and in laboratory-like settings. Specifically designed for methods development, research and complex material analysis, the TRACER 5g detects elements from Fluorine to Uranium (with a He atmosphere) and analyzes elements from Sodium to Uranium.
Latest Technology for Advanced Materials Applications
Geoscience users have long seen the TRACER 5g as unique in its ability to provide elemental information in analyzing ores, cores, drill cuttings, soil and sediment.
The TRACER 5g features a 1 μm graphene detector window, an integrated touchscreen display, 50kV X-ray tube, SharpBeam front end geometry (for maximizing count rate and light elemental sensitivity), large area silicon drift detector (SDD) with CUBE technology (maximizes count rate and light element sensitivity), selectable spot sizes (including 3 and 8 mm collimators) and is capable of operating in air, helium or vacuum environments.
The TRACER 5g offers an internal VGA CCD camera with adjustable lighting with the ability to store up to 5 photos per assay.
The TRACER 5g offers Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB connectivity. Data can be stored on a thumb drive and transferred to PC as needed.
Each TRACER 5g ships with ARTAX software for advanced XRF spectral analysis and also allows for the handling of large data sets and remote control of the instrument. EasyCal software is also included for off-line user-created single phase/beam empirical calibrations.
