Quick Risk Management Solution

DELTA Consumer Safety Handheld XRF analyzers are used for rapid product and component screening to monitor compliance with CPSIA, RoHS, WEEE, EN71-3 and other regulations. They provide fast, accurate answers to take action. Already new elements, including nickel (Ni), are being considered for addition to the existing regulation timelines. The DELTA measures these and more too. Olympus follows the development of global regulations closely to ensure our analyzers and technology stay ahead of the regulatory requirements.

Portable XRF for Consumer Products Testing

1. Point and Shoot

Pinpoint the Right Target:

The DELTA can isolate individual components on

electronics or consumer products using its integrated

CMOS camera and small spot collimator.

Use of 3 mm diameter X-ray spot collimation is available

at the push of a button. An on-screen video display indicates

analysis spot, and archives sample images to memory for use

in comprehensive test reports.



2. View Results

A. Classification
• The smart software will determine if it is Alloy, Mixed or Polymer
• Or it can be set by the user 

B. Lead in Surface or Substrate?
• If "Pb" on top turns blue, lead is in the Surface
• If "Pb" at bottom turns blue, lead is in the Substrate
C. Chemistry 

• Calculated results with +/- precision
• Pass/Fail Results as compared to the preset Action levels for each element
• Action level can be set by user 

D. Results Navigation


3. Generate Report

Result Interpretation & Certificates

The DELTA PC reporting software facilitates immediate report generation, including analysis results, qualitative sample information, spectral information, and sample image.

Traceable documentation makes the DELTA the ideal tool for your Reasonable Testing Program (RTP).

For Results you Can Count On

The DELTA automatically determines sample type (polymer, alloy or mixed) and optimizes measurement conditions accordingly. It recognizes non-homogeneous ("mixed") samples to alert the operator, which is critical for error-free operation. The DELTA also distinguishes Pb in the surface or in the substrate.
