ArcPad and Mobile XRF Scanner

"Olympus Innov-X XRF and XRD Analyzers provide qualitative and quantitative material characterization for detection, identification, Quality Control, process control, regulatory compliance and Research and Development for metals and alloys, mining and geology, scrap and recycling, environmental and consumer safety, academia, and general manufacturing."

Olympus Innov-X currently have a solution with ArcPad 7.1.1 that sends the analyzed readings via bluetooth to  ArcPad and adds it to the mapped locations' point attributes. We have been fortunate enough to help Innov-X out and get their custom applet certified for ArcPad 10.

This is quite a different device for us to have in the office and to be honest we got quite excited to "play" with it simply because there are danger stickers on the device!

So if you are in need of a mobile X-Ray gun (remember christmas is just around the corner) while your collecting field data, then check out the Delta XRF.
