What is the Vanta Work Station?

The Vanta Work Station enables your Vanta handheld XRF analyzer to be used as a fully interlocked system. Set it up as a rugged, portable field laboratory or on a benchtop.

To begin closed-beam testing with the Vanta Work Station, follow these simple steps:

  • Provide power to the Work Station via battery or AC input
  • Click the Vanta analyzer into place
  • Close the sliding lid, which is balanced and has a damping mechanism to prevent slamming
  • Start tests and transfer data wirelessly or via a USB cable connection

And that’s it! Once you’re done testing, you can easily release the analyzer by pressing a button.
