X-505 Handheld XRF: The Latest Breakthrough from SciAps

January 28, 2020

Woburn, Mass., Jan 28, 2020 — SciAps announces the release of the X-505—the second addition to its new product line featuring the smallest, lightest weight handheld X-ray analyzers made and addressing the specific needs of NDT/PMI, scrap, mining, environmental, and general analytical industries. The X-505 is a high-performance analyzer at a competitive price for users who want great performance on all the elements, but don’t need the speed on Al, Mg, Si, P and S of the premium NDT/PMI X-550 model.

The SciAps X-505 has the same balanced ergonomic design, narrow nose and light weight as the X-550 released at the end of 2019, but it is slightly slower and less expensive than the premium model. However, the X-505 is still faster on Al, Mg, Si, P and S than any competing XRF device. With its state-of-the-art design and excellent heat handling, the X-505 can run all day long, even in the hottest climates, without requiring down time due to overheating.

Through relationships with customers and its ability to innovate to meet the changing demands of elemental analysis in the 21st century, SciAps has stayed on the cutting edge of handheld technology. The new X-505 and X-550 deliver small size and blazing speed while weighing in at just 2.8 lbs. (1.27 kg) with the battery.
