Why Upgrade
Many X-ray Powder Diffractometers have many more years of life left in major components like goniometers and X-ray generators. Often throughput demands and priorities have changed, but budgets have not. We can offer an economical solution to increase throughput, by a factor of more than 30, allowing you to collect your X-ray diffraction data in minutes, rather than hours.

Our experience
- More than 15 years of experience in X-ray Powder Diffraction
- Extensive expertise in upgrading and adapting new data collection and processing capability to existing systems
- Installation and commissioning
- Training of staff can be provided
- Sales support and service agreements are available for worry free operation.

It's simple to operate
- The SxD software connects to the detector by Ethernet
- Step size and scan parameters are entered in the SxD software
- The diffractometer software starts the scan normally
- Once the scan is started, the SxD starts collecting counts and displaying the data in real time
- When the scan finishes, the data is saved in CPI file format, as a simple text file.
