The specialist for field use.

Mobile and universal handheld device for precise coating thickness measurement and material analysis - even with difficult material combinations.


At the same time layer thickness and
composition in one measurement
for outdoor use
Precise like no other thanks to
silicon drift detector

More versatile than any other.

The FISCHERSCOPE® X-RAY XAN® 500 is the most precise mobile XRF instrument on the market. The 3-point support ensures repeatable measurement results. It ensures that the instrument is always placed correctly and kept stable during measuring. The high-quality silicon drift detector (SDD) guarantees the necessary precision for analyzing multilayer coatings and alloy coatings such as zinc-nickel. The special feature of the compact measuring device: It detects the thickness and composition of the layer in parallel in just one measurement.
