EDX-7000P / EDX-8000P / EDX-8100P
The Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer EDX-7000/8000 measures the energy (keV) and intensity of the generated fluorescent X-rays to determine the type and content of the elements comprising a sample. It is applied for non-destructive elemental analysis of solid, powder, and liquid samples. It is widely used by electronics and automobile manufacturers around the world.
Principle and Features of X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry
BfS Type approval gives EDX-7000P/8000P/8100P plug & play status
The EDX-7000P and the EDX-8000P Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometers passed the BfS type approval, the safety standards prescribed by the German “Bundesanstalt für Strahlenschutz” BfS (Federal Institute for Radiation Safety).
2014 IBO Industrial Design Awards
Shimadzu EDX-7000/8000 Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer received Instrument Business Outlook's 2014 Gold Award for analytical instrument industrial design.
Principle of Fluorescent X-ray Generation
When a sample is irradiated with X-rays from an X-ray tube, the atoms in the sample generate unique X-rays that are emitted from the sample. Such X-rays are known as "fluorescent X-rays" and they have a unique wavelength and energy that is characteristic of each element that generates them. Consequently, qualitative analysis can be performed by investigating the wavelengths of the X-rays. As the fluorescent X-ray intensity is a function of the concentration, quantitative analysis is also possible by measuring the amount of X-rays at the wavelength specific to each element.
Supports Various Applications in Many Fields
Large Sample Chamber with Small Footprint
Installed width is 20% smaller than the previous instrument due to its compact body size. The EDX-7000/8000 can accommodate samples up to a maximum size of W300 x D275 x approx. H100 mm.
High-Visibility LED Lamp
When X-rays are generated, an X-ray indicator at the rear of the instrument and an X-RAYS ON lamp at the front turn on, so that the instrument status can be monitored even from a distance.
PCEDX Navi Software Allows Easy Operation from the Start
PCEDX Navi software is designed to simplify X-ray fluorescence spectrometry for beginners, while providing the feature set and capabilities demanded by more experienced users. The straightforward user interface offers intuitive operation and provides a convenient operating environment for beginners and experts alike.
EDX-7000P / EDX-8000P / EDX-8100P
The EDX-7000P, the EDX-8000P and the new EDX-8100P Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometers passed the BfS type approval, the safety standards prescribed by the German “Bundesanstalt für Strahlenschutz” BfS (Federal Institute for Radiation Safety). This BfS certification, administered by the German government, is considered one of the strictest safety standards in the world and is accepted throughout the European market as a seal of quality. In most European countries this certification will exempt the end user from having a user qualification and the hardware will no longer require annual X-ray leakage inspections. This will simplify operation and will reduce system management costs for the user
The EDX-7000P (range of detected elements: Na to U) and the EDX-8000P/8100P (range of detected elements: C to U) now feature enhanced safety mechanisms to prevent X-ray leakage:
The spectrometers feature a control function that blocks the generation of X-rays in case of a malfunction during operation and startup. To perfect the existing instruments, a new locking mechanism has been added to the main units, in order to enhance the monitoring system that works when the lid is opened or closed.
The systems measure the energy (keV) and intensity of the generated fluorescent X-rays to determine the type and content of the elements comprising a sample. They are applied for non-destructive elemental analysis of solid, powder, and liquid samples while offering excellent maintenance performance.
The EDX-7000P, EDX-8000P and the new -8100P are widely used by electronics and automobile manufacturers around the world. Furthermore, they are suitable for general screening applications, for analysis of impurities in pharmaceuticals, in foods and in polymer materials. In combination with FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometers), the EDX-7000P, EDX-8000P and EDX-8100P deliver a powerful package for the identification of contaminants.
