WALTHAM, Mass., March 14, 2017 — Olympus’ latest addition to the Vanta™ series of handheld XRF analyzers is optimized to help users ensure compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) and local or international regulatory laws. Like every Vanta analyzer, this new model combines fast, accurate results with a durable design for maximum uptime and a lower cost of ownership.

Vanta analyzers provide on-the-spot chemical analysis to quickly scan for toxic metals like lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), chromium (Cr) and bromine (Br) in consumer products such as toys, apparel, footwear and electronics to comply with RoHS regulations. Excellent sensitivity and repeatability enable Vanta analyzers to achieve low detection limits for reliable pass/fail results of regulated elements.

Vanta XRF analyzers are used as a screening tool to test for compliance with the following global hazardous substance regulations and testing methods:

  • EU RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU)
  • China RoHS Directive (ACPEIP)
  • Japan RoHS
  • Korean RoHS Directive
  • USA CPSIA (HR4040)
  • USA Halogen Free Directive
  • California Preposition 65
  • USA CPSC-CH-E1002-08 SOP
Vanta analyzers are IP65 rated* for protection against dust and water and drop tested to military standards (MIL-STD-810 G) for greater uptime. Vanta analyzers also incorporate Olympus’ revolutionary new Axon™ technology, a breakthrough in XRF signal processing that utilizes ultra-low-noise electronics to deliver higher X-ray count rates per second and test-to-test repeatability. The analyzer’s lower limits of detection accommodate future compliance as regulations change over time. Other features include:
  • Intuitive interface and responsive touch screen
  • Optional Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® connectivity for fast data downloads
  • Customizable home screen
Olympus’ newest Vanta analyzer combines durability, power and ease of use for testing consumer goods.
