S2 RANGER, Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence

50 watts of pure XRF power

The S2 RANGER applies up to 50 watts of X-ray power directly to the sample. This comes with the following advantages:

  • No need for moving parts such as primary optics or monochromators
  • Elements at very low concentration levels are excited
  • Higher intensity sets the stage for maximum precision

Award-winning XFlash technology

Thanks to Bruker’s outstanding XFlash detector the S2 RANGER can fully exploit the entire output of the 50 W X-ray tube and can convert this into stability and sensitivity. Owing to its Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) technology, the XFlash is empowered for maximum count rates and the best possible energy resolution:

  • Reliable results are facilitated by high count rates very fast
  • High count rates minimize statistical errors and lead to very accurate results
  • Optimal energy resolution permits different elements to be clearly separated and guarantees that even traces can be detected alongside the main components
  • Due to Peltier cooling, no liquid nitrogen is required for cooling; this minimizes inconveniences and significantly reduces operating costs

Reduced to the max – S2 RANGER

The small sample chamber of our S2 RANGER has three crucial advantages:

  • Short beam path means maximum intensity at the detector
  • Fast evacuation with the integrated vacuum pump ensures high sample throughput
  • In the case of liquid samples, only the sample chamber needs to be filled with helium, thereby cutting operating costs

TouchControl™ – Easy-to-use energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (EDXRF)

The S2 RANGER is performing elemental analysis in an innovative new way. Measurement jobs are quickly defined and started with minimal operator input using TouchControl™, the Bruker AXS proprietary touchscreen user interface. No training or expertise is required to achieve precise results from the very first day. The results display can be exactly tailored to your application and quality control limits are indicated by the traffic ligh colors red, yellow, and green.

The combination of the unique TouchControl™ with SPECTRA EDX provides full analytical flexibility with powerful tools. It keeps the setup of calibrations and applications as simple as possible by suggesting optimized measurement conditions. The universal calibration EQUA ALL enables you to obtain standardless results immediately.
