Oxford Instruments has launched a new app, OiConnect, for fast data sharing on-site for use with their range of X-MET8000 handheld X-ray fluorescence (HHXRF) analysers. The OiConnect app allows X-MET users to share their test results as soon as they are acquired, without having to go back to the office and/ or connect to a computer, as per Oxford. Once downloaded on the user’s iOS mobile device (phone, tablet), the OiConnect app takes the X-MET8000’s test data in real-time, so it can be shared on-the-spot via e-mail, instant message, etc. with all concerned.

Photos and other useful information (e.g. weight, price, batch number, and order details) can be added before the data is sent so that transactions can be completed quickly. There is no need to connect to a computer to generate a report and/or forward the data; all that is required is a WiFi or mobile data connection, according to the company. Christelle Petiot, Product Manager, Oxford Instrument says, “OiConnect is a simple way to share test results fast. Whether you’ve received incorrect materials, or you have a load of scrap metal available for sale, the OiConnect app enables you to send the relevant information to other people, wherever you are.”
