Innov-X’s XRF Family to be featured at BEW & IMAPS events in China and USA

Woburn, MA--- To answer the many RoHS**, REACH, and Pb-free challenges facing the electronics industry today, Innov-X offers the most complete range of handheld to benchtop XRF instruments to screen out banned substances.

Learn how using X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) to screen components, parts and PCB’s will help with compliance for the growing demands of international RoHS** and other Directives by visiting Innov-X’s Booth at the BEW and IMAPS EXPO’s* It’s a visit guaranteed to be worthwhile. (

Innov-X’s family of portable RoHS XRF analyzers are simple, yet effective, devices that can be taken virtually anywhere. With 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 can be identified and quantified. Save money by sending only those problem components to the lab, making any lab testing surgically precise. (

The newest members of the family include:

The X-50 Mobile Portable XRF: The ultimate benchtop XRF featuring 25x or more the power of handhelds -now in a mobile package. Test Cd down to 1 ppm in many sample types, 10 ppm in alloys. This is ideal for the RoHS Packaging Directive which requires sum of Cd, Hg, Pb, Cr less than 100 ppm. (

In addition, Innov-X patent pending RoHS Engine method and RoHS-Star™ software makes RoHS screening and quantitative analysis fast, reliable, and easy to use. They automatically determine if a sample is homogenous or non-homogenous, polymer or alloy, and optimizes the analyzer for best precision and detection limits. No user input is required – thus virtually eliminating the possibility of user errors. More information can be accessed at the RoHS Interactive Media Center. (
