Of course, ProScan-HSI is fully compatible with the data-processing software
suite developed by LLA, and can also be delivered with the Prediktera´s
software EVINCE for quick and easy visualisation.
LLA offers a variety of pre-configured applications for different industries. Customised application design is available upon request.
Scope of Delivery
Paired with water cooled high power X-Ray tubes the full potential of the
SDD´s can be exploited. Therefore the sensitivity of the system is high
enough to distinguish between different alloys of stainless steel, bronze,
brass and more.
The resolution across the belt can be selected basically free (the smallest possible width is 25 mm) and will be adjusted for each system according to the size of the analysed material stream. The resolution along the conveyor belt depends strongly on the belt velocity. The minimum resolution is about 1/100 of the belt velocity (e.g. 25 mm at 2.5 m/s). Hence it results for high throughput a smallest pixel size of about 25 mm x 25 mm. Bigger objects will be detected in several pixel and identified as one object, while smaller objects are detected as single objects as long as they are sufficiently separated.
By reducing the belt velocity and increasing the acquisition time per pixel a higher elemental sensitivity can be achieved to detect elements in low concentrations or small amounts (alloys, REE, PGM,…)
The housing of the XRFline fulfils the radiation safety requirements according to the Radiation Protection Ordinance of Germany. The radiation protection at and around the conveyor belt has to be provided by the manufacturer according to the effective Radiation Protection Ordinance at the place of operation. Furthermore the XRF line camera is integrated into a IP 65 rated housing, enabling maintenance-free 24h/7d operation.
Included in delivery is a preconfigured industrial PC with sensor control and analysis software. Due to the huge material variety the analysis software has to be customized for specific applications. The analysis result is sent to an external process control unit (e.g. SPS control) via standard Gigabit Ethernet interface in real-time.
Development and modification of analysis models require the handling and
visualization of large data sets. For this purpose, KustaSpec permits
simultaneous loading, grouping and colouring of thousands of NIR-spectra.
A comprehensive range of mathematical operations e.g. derivations are available for spectral processing. Statistical data evaluation as well as graphical analysis tools e.g. scores plot and vector plots are implemented for the validation of new applications by NIR test sets. The NIR test sets and learnsets (NIR reference spectral dataset for application development) can be generated and modified by KustaSpec as well.
