EDAX Introduces TEAM EDS 2.0 Analysis System
(Nanowerk News) EDAX Inc., a leader in X-ray microanalysis and electron diffraction instrumentation, introduces the TEAMô Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) 2.0 Analysis System--the next generation of its industry-leading analysis systems for electron microscopes. TEAMô EDS 2.0 includes new features, which provide the most intuitive and easy-to-use analytical software in the market.
The TEAMô EDS 2.0 Analysis System includes enhancements that streamline analysis and reporting workflow, boosting user productivity, reducing analysis time, and minimizing potential for errors. A new dynamic review feature allows users to easily compare and review multiple maps simultaneously. Analytical processing capabilities also have been improved with new Quant maps and a histogram tool to extract spectra from the area of interest. The innovative TEAMô EDS also includes Smart Pileup Correction to handle up to 120,000 counts per second, optimized for Silicon Drift Detectors.
"EDAX is committed to leading the industry with innovative solutions that continue to raise the standard for ease-of-use in EDS systems," comments Sun Park, Technical Product Manager for EDAX. "New features and enhancements in TEAMô EDS 2.0 further streamline and automate work functions allowing users of all skill levels to more fully utilize the capability of their electron microscope."
Among the other enhancements incorporated within TEAMô EDS 2.0 are binning options in the maximum channel spectrum feature, a customized line scan for desired length and width, additional image palettes, and a screen capture feature that stores the desired result with one simple click.
"Ease of use is at the core of the TEAMTM EDS 2.0 Analysis System. Its built-in analytical intelligence assists the user as needed and is as flexible as any user might require," adds Park. "TEAMTM EDS provides exceptional results every time regardless of the experience level of the user. Now, with the introduction of the TEAMTM EDS 2.0 Analysis System, those results are even easier to obtain, analyze, and present."
Since 1962, EDAX has used its knowledge and experience to develop ultra-sensitive silicon radiation sensors, digital electronics and specialized application software that facilitate solutions to research, development and industrial requirements.
EDAX is a unit of the AMETEK Materials Analysis Division-a division of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with 2010 sales of $2.5 billion.
