Equinox 2000. A conventionally designed rugged multi purpose instrument designed for QA applications as well as routine and high performance X-ray diffraction studies. This is the best value entry level diffractometer today. Its performance is truly excellent and measurements are very fast. A programmable 30 position sample holder is available to dramatically reduce operator times. Measurements are very fast compared with other diffractometers in that the unique Equinox curved detector can measure all diffraction peaks simultaneously. Crystallographic results are collected in a few seconds therefore analyzing a phase transition or unstable compound becomes possible – all with a low cost system.
