The X-ray detector measures the energy distribution of the X-ray fluorescence radiation emitted by the sample. Detector types that are optimal for their respective purposes are available for various applications.

Distance Controlled Measurement (DCM)
Distance Controlled Measurement (DCM)

To measure on geometrically irregular parts or in indentations, FISCHERSCOPE® X-RAY instruments are equipped with a special feature for distance-based measurement correction: the DCM Method.

This function also allows for testing of complex surface shapes and for measurements in indentations, whereby WinFTM® automatically factors the current measuring distance in when computing the measurement result for a specific area.
