APEX 3.0 Software

The new APEX™ 3.0 Software is the ultimate materials characterization software suite integrating Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS), Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD), and Wavelength Dispersive Spectrometry (WDS). This optimized configuration offers the uncompromised performance of each technique and allows users to combine them for unparalleled materials insight. All three techniques seamlessly operate within the APEX analysis user interface, blending powerful elemental and crystallographic analysis routines with an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, ensuring outstanding data collection, faster analysis, and flexible reporting for users of all levels.
APEX 3.0 - Now with EDS, EBSD, and WDS


  • Delivers fully integrated EDS, EBSD, and WDS modes
  • Easy-to-use software interface for integrated systems
  • Enables simultaneous EDS-EBSD and EDS-WDS data acquisition
  • Provides advanced quantification algorithm for EDS-WDS studies
  • Streamlines batch collection for combined EDS-WDS data
  • Fully automates WDS data collection
  • Updated OIM Analysis™ ensures faster processing of large datasets
  • Improved OIM Matrix™ accelerates spherical indexing

APEX 3.0 is the complete materials characterization system that combines this unique trio of analytical tools. Integrated data can provide solutions that were once unachievable, however each tool can also operate independently to utilize EDAX’s technological advancements.
