Accuracy, Precision and Detection Limits
precision refers to the reproducibility of the measurement of the X-ray counts in the EDS spectrum. 
Quantitative EDS X-ray microanalysis using SEM
The beam current should be adjusted to minimize damage to the sample but generate sufficient X-rays to allow reliable quantification (see precision and Accuracy and Detection Limits).
