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.

    Hello, I have a Innov-X Delta XRF Professional that I am trying to set up with ARCPADj installed on a Trimble Juno 3D. They are all set up and are communicating in all regards. Set up with ExploreMiobile the configuration work perfectly and upon taking an XRF sample, the XRF sends the data to the Juno which can be instantly viewed through a (Omega) window (not sure if this is part of Trimble or ARCPAD). I cannot for the life of me figure out how to set ARCPAD up to do the same thing.
    Any direction or instructions would be very much appreciated!
    Cheers & thanks,

    You do need the custom applet for ArcPad created by Innov-X. Do you have that? Please contact Innov-X first. If you still have issues, please contact Esri tech support.

    Thanks very much!
