Hitachi 1000A-III and 1000VX XRF Analyzers for RoHS Inspection

Hitachi 1000VX XRF Analyzer for RoHS Inspection

When RoHS regulations initially affected electronic component importers and manufacturers in the United States and Mexico, the Seiko 1000A system was the most popular solution for in-house screening.  Hitachi High-Technologies offers the latest developments of that model in the Hitachi 1000A-III (and 1000VX, shown in image).  This model expands on the benefits that the 1000A offered to major organizations, primarily a relatively cost-efficient system for precise analysis down to the component level.

Users of previous models (Seiko 1000A) will appreciate the even more user-friendly approach to software and report generation, which includes measures that will prevent operator error.  Learn about all of the advancements made in our Introduction to Hitachi EA-Series (Presentation Linked).

Low-Cost Entry Model: The same price as the previous version (SEA1000A-II) but now features a high resolution silicon semiconductor detector (SDD), electric control system, and a mechanical drive for faster measurement speeds (shortened by 1/3).  Environmentally regulated substance measurement software V2, which was previously an option, is now included standard.

Precision Control Software: Based on feedback from previous Seiko models, this software was designed to simplify the measurement process and minimize operator mistakes.  The end result is faster measurement times and more confidence in results.

Material ID Function: Previous versions required manual selection of an analytical recipe (calibration) but now there is no operator involvement as the system automatically identifies the material and selects the appropriate calibration to base the analysis on.

Improved Operation Panel: The new operation panel has a progress bar indicator and electronic sounds that keep operators aware of the measurement status.

Certified Reference Materials, HS Standards: In addition to offering certified reference materials for RoHS directive elements (Cd, Pb, Cr, Hg, Br), Hitachi High-Technologies also manufactures standard samples that support the control of Chlorine (Cl), Antimony (Sb), Tin (Sn), etc

New Regulated Substance Software: Measuring time was, of course, reduced by precision control software.  Inspection efficiency was improved and the cost reduced by central control of measurement data used in a database.

Sample Changer (option): User free continuous measurement of up to twelve (12) sample.
