Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What type of EDS detectors does IXRF offer?
A: IXRF offers a multitude of different detectors. We have a detector to meet your budget, in either LN2 or Silicon Drift Detectors (SDD). You may choose from several different guaranteed resolutions.

Q: I am interested in an upgrade. Can I use my existing EDS detector?
A: Yes, IXRF was designed to interface with most detectors. We have not come across one which was incompatible. In many cases light element sensitivity is increased due to our digital pulse processing electronics.

Q: When I upgrade my IXRF software, what needs to be done?
A: Simply download the latest version and install it.

Q: Once I upgrade with IXRF, who supports my detector?
A: IXRF does. IXRF has full capabilities for window, crystal, FET, and rebuild. You will be in good hands.

Q: Once I buy an IXRF system and later decide to change SEMs, can the IXRF system be adapted to a different SEM?
A: Yes, the only restriction is the detector. The detector must be fitted to the new SEM. Please contact IXRF regarding the specific modifications to the detector.
