Solar Thin Film Coating Measurement XAN 5000

Our range of Solar Thin Film Coating Measurement is highly innovative and energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence measuring system (EDXRF) for in-line application of the industrial production sites. They are designed for constant non-destructive study and measurement of thin layers as well as layer systems in production lines. The rugged design meets the tough demands of varied industrial environments and for constant operation.


  • In the photovoltaic industry like CIGS, CIS, CdTe

  • Measurements on foils, glass panels and belts

  • Measurements on hot surfaces (water cooled version)
