Instrument offers better analysis for difficult samples
The latest SPECTROMAXx boasts improved user management and performance.
SPECTRO has brought onto the market the third generation of its SPECTROMAXx stationary metal analyser.
The company said it has improved operation of the instrument with the use of toolbar buttons, a user management system, and a separation of operation from programming of the instrument.
The SPECTROMAXx is used mainly for material testing in foundries and for incoming and outgoing inspections in the metal industry.
With it, users are able to determine all of the elements used in the metal industry, including trace analysis of carbon, phosphorous, sulfur and nitrogen.
Calibration modules are available for base metals: iron, aluminum, copper, nickel, cobalt, titanium, magnesium, zinc, tin and lead.
Benefits of the latest instrument include:
- The measurement is no longer controlled through the menu, but with symbols and toolbar buttons. Once a procedure has been started, only the functions that are logical at that point in time are active in the control software – all other commands are hidden.
- The metal analyser also offers a user management system that permits rights for individual employees to be determined.
- Separation of the operating module from the method development module is an major advantage of the new instrument’s software. Information needed for operation is directly accessible without having to change the method data.
- The SPECTROMAXx’s analytical diagnosis system also has been improved. The instrument independently monitors all operating parameters. It even shows when the spark stand needs to be cleaned depending on the type of samples being analysed.
The SPECTROMAXx is delivered together with Result Manager, an analysis archive software.
The Result Manager documents when a given sample was analysed and the measurements the instrument delivered.
This enables paperless documentation that is also suitable for audits.
Additionally, the Result Manager provides filtering und sorting capabilities. It also shows, using trend charts, how often and for which samples quality-relevant tolerances for individual selected elements have been met or exceeded.
