RoHS Testing Methods
The most common tool used for RoHS compliance testing is theportable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyzer. They come in stand-alone, bench-top and handheld formats. Portable, on-site XRF testing using a handheld XRF analyzer is usually performed first and focuses on the parts of a product with the highest risk of containing restricted substances.
XRF analyzers can be bought or rented as the need arises. The following is a list of XRF manufacturers:
Other RoHS testing methods involve using Fourier Transform Infra-red Spectroscopy (FTIR) testing and sometimes Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) testing as well.
