QLX1 follows a unique design concept. It unites the benefits of both worlds, handheld analysers (XRF, LIBS) and mobile spark spectrometers and avoids the pitfalls at the same time.
In detail this means:
full analytical scope! No lock-out elements, no long measurement times.
The system covers all relevant elements and this may even include C, N, P, S and many others (in steels), Li, Be, Mg, Al within 3 seconds at low limits of quantification
truly portable solution! Both battery and argon on board! With less than 8kg and a hands-free backpack set, even analyzing on higher elevations is possible.
big display! A 12″ touch-screen allows easy reading and operation.
high capacity battery! Re-chargeable, light-weight Li-ion battery supports you throughout the day.
The probe is separated from the main unit and weighs just 840 grams. Controllers, battery, and electronics are located in the main unit.
For applications where argon is needed, a special mini can can be attached to the bottom of the instrument. A complete filling lasts for approximately 1000 to 1500 or even more measurements (depending on application). The gas cylinder is refillable.
QLX1 features latest technologies in excitation, detection and digital concept.
In contrast to classical spark spectrometers, QLX1 uses a laser to excite the sample and generate a plasma. We call this laser-OES, but the technology is also referred to as LIBS.
It offers some distinct advantages:
no or low argon
no electrode cleaning, no cross contamination
The detectors used in QLX1 are CMOS sensors. They are technically superior to previously used CCDs in many aspects: spectral response, dynamic range, speed. They allow single-pulse detection, a technology used for micro-analysis, depth profiling, and also to identify outliers and, thus, improve the precision of the instrument.
Finally, various digital services and general IoT functions, provide value propositions unseen in this type of instrument before.
Currently the below listed applications are available for QLX1.
