Breakdowns cost time and money. Vanta analyzers are durable for increased uptime and a low cost of ownership.

Built to thrive in the toughest working environments, Vanta analyzers are:

  • Drop tested using U.S. Department of Defense methods (MIL-STD-810G), reducing the risk of damage and costly repairs when a device is dropped or jostled.
  • IP65 rated dust and water resistant to protect against the hazards found in even the most challenging environments.*
  • Withstands a temperature range of -10 °C to 50 °C (14 °F to 122 °F) at full duty cycle, so you waste less time waiting for your analyzer to cool.**
  • The detector shutter on C and M series models helps prevent punctures so you can analyze rough surfaces with confidence


Vanta analyzers give you the same accurate result every time from your first test to your hundredth test.

The Vanta Series’ proprietary Axon technology uses ultra-low-noise electronics enabling higher X-ray counts per second for fast, accurate, and repeatable results.

Axon technology coupled with a new quad-core processor make Vanta analyzers remarkably responsive, pushing the limits of performance so you get the best results in the least amount of time. Axon technology provides remarkable test-to-test and instrument-to-instrument repeatability, so your first test is the same as your last test no matter what instrument you may use.


Vanta analyzers maximize user throughput and make data archiving easy. Application-specific software features improve user productivity for fast ROI.

  • Intuitive user interface (UI) to quickly navigate the device’s settings and software functions.
  • Customize which features and functions are displayed on the main screen.
  • Data export is simple via a USB flash drive, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
  • Touch screen display that is clear, bright, and readable in any light.
  • Ergonomic buttons and an industrial-grade, push-button joystick make it easy to navigate the UI with gloved hands.
  • Embedded GPS to pair results with precise GPS coordinates for documentation and data mapping.
  • Optional 5-megapixel panoramic camera; combine images with XRF data and GPS coordinates.
  • Streamlined reporting and archiving for exceptional data traceability to the field.
  • Cloud technology enabled.

Software features that deliver fast ROI

Vanta handhelds feature innovative software features designed to maximize the analyzer’s capabilities.

  • SmartSort: automatically lengthens or shortens test time based on material to save time; obtain aluminum grade results in as little as 1 second.
  • Grade match messaging: real time and/or pop-up messages with familiar trade or grade names or special handling instructions to reduce user training and increase efficiency.
  • Nominal value: automatically identifies the likely presence of elements invisible to XRF based on grade specifications.
  • Residual library: set a maximum tolerated concentration for residual elements in grade families.
  • On-screen grade comparison: compare close grades side-by-side to know which alloy is the best match with nominal and residual values.
Connected and Cloud Capable
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth®: connect to the cloud or other devices with optional Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
  • Embedded GPS: pair test results with precise GPS coordinates to document and map the location of elements.
  • Streamlined reporting: combine GPS data, XRF test results, and images from the optional 5-megapixel panoramic camera for inclusive archiving and streamlined reporting.
