The Quickshot XRF line was developed by technicians that have been involved in x-ray fluorescence technology for many years. Based on their knowledge of what XRF users need, it was critical that the instrument line provide software that was simple to navigate and they have achieved that with the current software options.
The handheld x-ray fluorescence system offers multiple software packages; including a hazardous substance, geological/soil testing and precious metal analysis packages. This approach allows Quickshot XRF to offer the system at an excellent price point.
With its straight forward set-up and measurement procedures the unit can be used with minimal training to obtain results and store them on the PDA. During the measurement time (which can be set for 10-300 seconds) the user can review real-time results, the spectrum or information on the instrument set-up for that test. After results are collected, the user can store them on the PDA's history or transfer them to any desktop computer for long-term storage, review and report generation.
The QSX-HH measurement time can vary. Based on a users needs and requirements it can be as low as 10 seconds or as long as 300. Often when users begin holding the system for that long, they prefer the optional instrument stand. This creates a 'desktop' style instrument but after simply detaching the handheld analyzer, the user can take the system anywhere they require testing. With the removable PDA and Trigger Lock; the system can be run with ease from a users desk or anywhere else.
