Intelligent Optics Module (IOM)
Unique Benefits of IOM
  • Fully automatic optic alignment for reproducible, safe and simple alignment
  • Peak performance at all times
  • Remote source optimization from the next room or the next continent
  • Align your source with the safety enclosure closed and interlocked


A fully automatic optic alignment system

Achieve peak source performance any time with Intelligent Optics Module (IOM) automated alignment

Effortless Intensity

Automatic beam alignment for consistent performance, the XtaLAB Synergy-DW VHF can now be equipped with our new IOM device for fully motorized automatic beam alignment. With encoders on every axis, IOM puts the beam exactly where you need it with high reproducibility, perfect for the smaller samples commonly studied today. IOM also lets you achieve maximum intensity from your source by automatically maximizing the intensity so you can achieve peak performance at all times.

Peak Performance

With automatic alignment, your source can maintain peak performance all the time. Perfect alignment can be achieved within a few minutes to keep your system ready for the smallest and most challenging samples.

Precision Engineering


The IOM device has been designed with encoders on each motor to ensure it knows its exact position. When aligning the beam, this enables the best position to be automatically found and remembered so optimal alignment can be easily recovered.


Manual alignment of X-ray sources often requires direct access to knobs and screws inside the radiation safety enclosure. This represents a risk of exposure to X-ray radiation and thus is often left to service engineers to perform. The IOM device allows fully remote alignment of the X-ray optic while the X-ray safety enclosure is safely interlocked.


X-ray source alignment has never been easier with the IOM device attached to your source. The X-ray optic can be aligned either using manual point and click to point the beam at the sample or automatic alignment for maximum intensity in just a few minutes.

More independence

The IOM gives unprecedented control over the optic position, all controlled via a software interface. This means that service engineers no longer need to be present on-site to accomplish full optic alignment. Either use our automatic routine or adjust the alignment yourself with an easy-to-use, intuitive software interface. Still not confident? Our service engineers can step in and perform alignment and source diagnostics over the internet, minimizing your service costs.
