Bruker Optics TRACER 5



The TRACER 5 pXRF spectrometer; ideal for Methods Development, Research and Complex Materials.    
TRACER 5 is the high value in-situ pXRF performer synchronizing power, function, precision and accuracy for dynamic, field capable laboratory-like elemental analysis.   
Complete user control   
The TRACER 5 allows complete user control of the excitation conditions. These can be developed using recommended settings in the software or user preferences.   
  • Current   
  • Voltage   
  • Automated filter   
  • Manual filter   
  • Sample spot size   
  • Vacuum, Helium or air   
    The TRACER 5 settings and measurements can be controlled on the handheld or with Artax™ advanced spectral analysis PC software, via WiFi or USB.   
    Matrix Matched Calibrations   
    Users can also develop their own calibrations with EasyCal PC software for empirical correlations. These can be transferred to the TRACER 5 for point-and-shoot tests. Moreover, as the calibration is revised and improved, previously collected data can be recalculated with no need to remeasure samples.
