Multichannel, plug & play design makes SITORO® Accelerated Analysis easier than ever

Compact, portable and compatible – digital X-ray spectrometer technology takes a huge leap forward in usability with the new FalconX plug & play design.

Southern Innovation’s licensing partner, XIA, has released the new series of FalconX digital pulse processors Powered By SITORO Accelerated Analysis. Combining cutting-edge hardware with patented SITORO signal processing technology, the FalconX series unites unprecedented technical performance with the convenience of simple setup.

“The new series by XIA is compact, portable and compatible with a broad range of detectors,” said David Scoullar, CEO of Southern Innovation. “The FalconX processors require minimal setup, their interface is intuitive, and the data readout options are flexible. Analysis is both simple and customisable, so scientists can efficiently extract the highest quality data from their experiments.”

The FalconX comes in three models. FalconX1 caters to single-channel applications, while the FalconX4 and FalconX8 provide powerful four- and eight-channel processing for larger systems. For more than eight detector channels, FalconX8 units can be networked easily and optionally rack-mounted.

“We are delighted to continue our collaboration with Southern Innovation to deliver the world’s most advanced digital pulse processors. XIA has incorporated SITORO Accelerated Analysis into our latest FalconX line of pulse processors, which will provide cutting-edge throughput and superior resolution for demanding applications involving both single and multiple channel detectors.”

SITORO Accelerated Analysis is the gold standard for analytical radiation detection and measurement. The FalconX is an invaluable tool in high-resolution, high-speed X-ray fluorescence experiments. It is already used globally by leading synchrotrons, national research institutions and the petroleum industry, with repeat orders in-hand for the new series.

FalconX Powered By SITORO Accelerated Analysis dramatically cuts analysis time, with minimal resolution degradation from low to high count rates. It enables exceptional throughput with output count rates greater than 3.5 million counts per second with dead-time of less than 20%, and excellent pulse pair resolution of less than 30ns. The FalconX series eliminates the need to adjust shaping times across count rates, and offers flexibility to optimise resolution, throughput or a combination of both.

FalconX processors are compact, highly portable, and compatible out of the box with virtually all detectors, requiring minimal setup. The intuitive GUI and flexible data readout formats make analysis simple and customisable.
