UltraDry Compact EDS Detector – Silicon Drift X-Ray Detector
The Thermo Scientific UltraDry Compact EDS detector (Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometer) is an advanced Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) that combines best-in-class collection rates with low energy performance and light element detection down to carbon for your elemental mapping needs.
The UltraDry Compact loads high performance into a small package. At the heart of the detector is the on-chip FET and proprietary preamplifier stage. This combination produces outstanding spectral performance and X-ray collection rates of up to 1,000,000 counts per second.
Other key features are the innovative window technology that enables excellent low energy performance and no need for liquid nitrogen cooling. For convenience, the UltraDry Compact mounts on the WDS port of your SEM chamber.
Complete Microanalysis System
The UltraDry Compact is part of a highly engineered, fully integrated microanalysis system, the Thermo Scientific NORAN System 7. This system features such things as:
- Template point and shoot analysis
- Standardless quantification
- Full dead-time corrected spectral imaging for elemental mapping
- Take your data anywhere facility freeing up the microscope for more data collection
- One–click reporting to Microsoft Word

EDS Analysis with NORAN System 7 Spectral Imaging
The UltraDry Compact EDS detector gives you outstanding element mapping in minutes.
With Spectral Imaging, where a full EDS spectrum is stored at every pixel, you can continue to analyze the sample after it has been removed from the microscope.
NORAN System 7 tools provide several analytical methods for the best results.
