Octane Elect EDS System


Octane Elect Silicon Drift Detector 
Octane Elect SDD

The Octane Elect EDS System is an enhanced Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) platform with the latest advancements in Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) technology and high speed electronics. Tailored for users who demand higher performance and functionality than the options available in entry-level systems, the Octane Elect EDS System provides excellent resolution and high throughput at an optimal value with a remarkable low energy sensitivity for light element detection and low voltage (kV) microanalysis.

Octane Elect Silicon Drift Detectors

The Octane Elect SDDs incorporate a silicon nitride (Si3N4) window, high speed electronics and a manual slide. They can be combined with one of EDAX's Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) cameras as part of the Pegasus EDS-EBSD Analysis System, providing seamless integration for both elemental composition and crystal structure analysis in one easy-to-use package. For more information, please visit the Pegasus EDS-EBSD Analysis System page.

The Octane Elect SDDs are available in 2 models:
Octane Elect Plus - 30 mm2 chip
Octane Elect Super - 70 mm2 chip

Best Light Element Performance

The Octane Elect SDD with a Si3N4 window offers major transmission improvements compared to detectors with a polymer window, leading to greatly improved light element performance and significantly more critical data for the materials analyst.

Low kV Performance

The mechanical properties of silicon nitride allow the use of thinly fabricated windows with a low aspect ratio support grid, offering a great benefit in terms of low energy sensitivity and optimal low voltage analysis.


Benefits

Al L to Al K peak height ratio of 1:1 at 2.5 kV
