Electrochemical Research

Performing standard electrochemistry, electrochemical analysis, studies on analytes, ion determination, analytical chemistry, electrochemical cell, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry and determination of redox potentials.

Cyclic voltammetry, square wave voltammetry, potentiometry and coulometry are only a few methods to be mentioned when it comes to electrochemical analytics. Samples of organic and inorganic chemistry can be evaluated by these techniques in order to get insight into their composition and the quantity of specific redox active species. Accuracy, ability to work at low concentrations and low time consumption make electrochemical analytic methods very attractive for the daily use in analytic laboratories.

Main Instruments

Electrochemical Workstations

The Electrochemical Workstations from ZAHNER-elektrik have been proven to be one of the most sophisticated, precise and versatile instruments for any kind of electrochemical application for many years. The great variety of our instruments and their extensions allows you to cover any research in your electrochemistry laboratory.

CIMPS

The ZAHNER CIMPS system based on LED arrays brings an additional advantage compared to the IMPS described in the literature: a control loop regulates light intensity and modulation and keeps it absolutely stable.

CIMPS fit

Fast Light Intensity Transients System
Extend the scope of your CIMPS system for the examination of fast kinetics in organic, dye sensitized and monolitic SC.

External Power Potentiostats

Extend your electrochemical workstation, for example ZENNIUM X or ZENNIUM pro, with an external potentiostat to boost output current, enlarge compliance voltage or realize multi-cell arrangements.

Accessories - Add-On Cards

PAD4 4-channel add-on card

The ZAHNER PAD4 is a 4-channel add-on card for ZENNIUM Electrochemical Workstations. It introduces four additional parallel sampled signal inputs for cell voltage and impedance in fuel cell stacks and battery packs, with a common current.

EPC42 Controller Card for External Potentiostats 4 Channel

The EPC42 is a controller module for external potentiostats. Each EPC42 is able to address up to 4 PP/EL/XPot devices. Up to four EPC42 cards can be installed in a ZENNIUM / ZENNIUM X / ZENNIUM pro system. In total, an advanced ZENNIUM electrochemical workstation has the ability to control up to 16 external PPs/XPots.

TR8M Transient Recorder

Transient recorder TR8M with 8 MSample up to 20 MHz. With the TR8M you can record fast pulses and transients. Together with the Pluse Probe and an external potentiostat or electronic load you can perform high current interrupt (HCI) measurements.

Temp/U - Temperature Recording Add-On Card

ZAHNER TEMP/U enables the measurement of temperature by direct connection of two different thermocouples. Two additional electrochemical potential measurements can be done by connecting auxiliary electrodes to the medium level inputs.

RMux - 16 Channel cell multiplexer for internal potentiostat

The RMux add-on card allows to connect up to 16 electrochemical cells to your electrochemical workstation simultaneously.

PMux P - Power Cell Multiplexer Segmented

The power cell multiplexer PMux can be used with ZENNIUM electrochemical workstations as well as with an external potentiostat from the EL-Series, PP-Series and XPot. It can manage a cell current up to ±5 A.
