Tracer III-V+ / III-SD

Tracer III-V+ / III-SD

There are many reasons why the Tracer family has become the preferred instrument for leading conservation scientists around the world. It combines the power and flexibility you would expect from a bench-top instrument with the convenience of a handheld – thanks to some pioneering, user-oriented innovations. These include the same vacuum technology that we originally developed in partnership with NASA for the space shuttle program. The instrument also comes with powerful laptop-based analytical software, live-time spectral display, and customizable filters and secondary targets, designed to optimize your analysis no matter what the application.

Complete user control

These analyzers allow complete user control of the excitation conditions:

  • Current
  • Voltage
  • User selected filter

for optimization of measurement conditions for investigation of your objects. The Tracer III-SD incorporates the proprietary Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) which provides high speed data acquisition, better resolution than the traditional SiPIN detector and light element sensitivity. When the Tracer III-SD is operated with the optional vacuum system the ultimate light element sensitivity can be achieved.

In addition to the basic instrument, the Tracer system is supplied with:

  • Powerful lap-top based analytical software which provides live spectral display and complete peak identification
  • A tripod mount which allows precise three dimensional positioning of the analyzer
  • Unmatched application training and support.
