Innov-X Hand Held XRF Analyzer provides fast elemental analysis without isotopes

Innov-X Hand Held XRF Analyzer provides fast elemental analysis without isotopes

Woburn, MA, 11 January 2007,---Visitors to Innov-X’s Booth 637 at the DesignCon Conference and Exposition† will learn how using X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) can screen components, parts and PCB’s for compliance with the European Union’s RoHS* Directives. Recent studies indicate that up to 50% of supplier Certifications stating products are RoHS compliant, yet fail to pass testing. Portable XRF in many cases provides a simple, fast, non-destructive screening method to confirm suppliers’ certifications and mitigate your risk.

Innov-X XRF analyzers are simple yet effective screening devices that can be taken virtually anywhere. They have the ability to alert users to banned metals, using pass or fail criteria. They will document total Cr, Br, Pb, Hg, and Cd. In just seconds, prohibited materials may be identified and quantified.

Simple Path to Compliance via Rental Program—
Innov-X is helping manufacturers and component suppliers achieve RoHS Compliance. “We have cut pricing virtually to our cost as a means of helping the U.S. manufacturers become compliant. This is our way to help the electronic component suppliers, OEM’s, and contract manufacturers mitigate the impact of RoHS. It is a complex directive and we are helping suppliers and manufacturers reduce the impact on their operations. Our new XRF rental program and RoHS-Star™ software demonstrates our commitment to supporting this vital industry.” notes Don Sackett, President of Innov-X.

RoHS Impact—
Sackett further observes: “Many companies have not yet reported the financial impact of RoHS. Manufacturers, particularly those that are attempting to address compliance for the first time, tend to underestimate the true costs of noncompliance. The withdrawal of some Apple and Palm non-compliant products from EU markets** are examples of effects on the bottom line. Furthermore, as responsibilities of management, RoHS’ impact can fall under the reporting provisions of Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) Law.”

RoHS Screening Approach—
European Union regulations for RoHS compliance can pose a challenge to most companies. Many observers of EU directives believe they will focus on “due diligence”, and this may be a key to mitigating impact or penalties. “Due Diligence” is defined as a combination of obtaining and checking supplier certifications, and verifying certifications via a testing program. Using the Innov-X Alpha Series™ XRF analyzer in a screening test program, prohibited materials can be identified in just seconds.
