The combination of our large area silicon-drift detector (SDD) and revolutionary superfast detector electronics BOOST™ technology provides up to 10 times the sensitivity of other handheld XRF models, delivering the low limits of detection required to measure critical elements accurately time after time.

Rugged for low cost of ownership

The X-MET8000 is designed to withstand the harshest environments and weather conditions: it is IP54 compliant (equivalent to NEMA 3) for superior protection against dust and water and has been tested to MIL-STD-810G military standard for ruggedness. It features a large heat sink for optimum stability, even in hot environments (no need to wait for detector cooldown between analyses) and comes with a compact, rugged and waterproof case for transportation and storage.

Advanced data management in the palm of your hand

Data management with the X-MET8000 is very versatile: you can store up to 100,000 results on the analyser, download them to a USB stick or PC in CSV format or tamper-proof PDF for ultimate data integrity. You can print results on-site on a portable Bluetooth printer and attach them to sample bags to avoid mix-ups. Alternatively you can create fully customised reports using the X-MET report generator. Sharing results on-the-go with clients or colleagues is easy with the OiConnect app, and the OiConnect cloud service enables you to export results securely in real-time, and access them anytime anywhere. You can even manage results from a whole fleet of X-METs with a single OiConnect account.

X-MET Geo Easy to use

Easy to use

It’s intuitive and with proven ‘point and shoot’ simplicity, minimal training is needed to operate this analyser. Its large 4.3” colour touchscreen provides excellent results visibility in direct sunlight and uses icons for easy operation, even with gloves on. The quick-swap analysis window means no tools are required to change the window when broken or dirty. The customisable results screen means fast decision making: you can list elements in your preferred order, include user-defined compounds and pass/fail messages. It is also practical: ergonomic and lightweight (1.5kg with battery), you can use it for long periods of time without getting tired and its long battery life (up to 10-12 hours) ensures uninterrupted workflow.
