X-Strata920 - XRF with Silicon Drift Detector Option

Hitachi XRF Analyzer with Silicon Drift DetectorThe X-Strata920 coating thickness measurement system is known as one of the most reliable systems offered by Oxford Instruments.  Now, Hitachi High-Tech (who acquired Oxford's XRF division) has expanded the analyzers application reach by adding a Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) option. 

The SDD configuration, which is competitively priced, allows a user to measure the broadest range of coating applications - from basic single layer applications to complex stacks (specifically, it meets IPC4552A standard for ENIG as well as ENEPIG and others).

Silicon Drift Detector (SDD)critical for many applications, the high resolution SDD Technology makes the X-Strata920 a powerful analyzer while remaining competitively priced

Chamber Configuration / Sizes: Multiple configurations are available depending on a users needs; slotted chambers, motorized stage, tall chambers, etc.

Small Collimators: Another option that is customized for the users needs is in the collimator package; the smallest is 0.025 x 0.05 mm

Flexibility in Calibration: The Hitachi X-Strata920 allows users to add as many calibrations as they need...without assistance from service (means no additional costs)!

Built for Printed Circuit Boards: Combine the SDD model for ENIG/ENEPIG, thin gold, etc with the motorized XY (movement of 7"x7") for easy quality control of circuit boards
