EDAX Launches Latest Generation of Electron Backscatter Diffraction Detectors
DigiView IV Broadens EDAX Portfolio of X-Ray Microanalysis Instruments
MAHWAH, NJ - EDAX Inc., a leader in X-ray microanalysis and electron diffraction instrumentation, has launched the DigiView IV, the latest generation electron backscatter detector (EBSD).
"The DigiView IV is designed to serve a wide range of EBSD applications," explains Del Redfern, Manger of Product Marketing for EDAX. "It can obtain orientation mapping data using EDAX's proprietary OIM software at rates up to 150 indexed patterns per second, with improved sensitivity and contrast. It also can also be used for Phase Identification using the Genesis and Delphi software applications and produce high-resolution images.
"The DigiView IV is the perfect complement to our market-leading OIM software, bringing all of the advanced features of orientation mapping and calculations, including crystal orientation, phase analysis along with grain size and boundary information to the materials characterization scientist," adds Redfern.
"The DigiView IV fits seamlessly into the EDAX family of materials characterization tools, effortlessly integrating with our market-leading EDS detectors and our technology-leading WDS systems," he notes.
"The DigiView IV detector uses a bellows-based insertion and retraction system for operation while under vacuum and for live-imaging for maximum vacuum and system integrity," concludes Redfern.
