While the TRACER 5 has the ability to completely control the current and voltage, it also adds many new features which have been requested by our users. The user can select filters from the integrated filter wheel or insert user-designed filters. In addition, the measurements can be made in air, vacuum or helium atmosphere, which can be selected based on the needs of the user. The detector configuration and a small distance between the sample and detector make for a very sensitive system with some of the lowest detection limits available today. The TRACER 5 has approximately three times the sensitivity of the previous generation TRACERs, with helium purge TRACER 5 is the only handheld XRF that can elements as light as fluorine.
