ZAHNER ZENNIUM XC

Electrochemical Workstation

Highend Meets Compact

 

Since 1976, ZAHNER-elektrik is producing Electrochemical Workstations at the edge of technology. The systems are highly praised for their exceptional accuracy, flexibility and reliability. Now, the ZAHNER R&D-team launched a new generation of Electrochemical Workstations including the ZENNIUM XC defining the Gold standard in electrochemical instrumentation.

If you go through the technical specifications below you will find outstanding features and data like

  • 32-bit converter resolution for exceptional DC accuracy
  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) frequency range from 10 µHz to 5 MHz
  • HDP technology with 24 bit AC resolution for highest dynamic accuracy
  • ADF technology (optional) for extremely fast CV up to 10 kV/s with continuous slopes for outstanding CV performance
  • Software switchable compliance voltage for minimum noise, optimum sample safety and energy efficiency
  • DC voltage ranges ±5 V and ±14 V software-controlled perfectly matching the requirements of Lithium battery research
  • AC amplitude 0 - 2 V and 0 - 6 V with 18 bit resolution
  • Floating / grounded mode switchable for measuring on a wide range of objects

The ZENNIUM XC comes with the new THALES XT Software Suite providing features such as highly flexible Windows®-conform online visualization and intuitive offline data analysis.

 

The ZENNIUM XC is a high-performance electrochemical workstation at a surprisingly affordable price. Besides a potentiostat/galvanostat it bears a frequency response analyzer unit (FRA) for promoting impedance spectroscopy. It provides high-end features like a frequency range up to 5 MHz, a max. current of ±2.0 A, a controlled voltage of ±14 V and an input impedance of 10 TΩ || ±5 pF. The ZENNIUM XC is a perfect workstation for a wide range of electrochemical applications with focus on corrosion, coatings and laminates. The ZENNIUM XC can be easily switched from grounded to floating operation.

ZENNIUM XC comes bundled with the outstanding THALES XT software package which offers all standard methods and more at a mouse click. This is why the Zennium XC can easily be adapted to very different measurement requirements. Furthermore, with the probes available, the ZENNIUM XC is able to grow with its tasks:

  • Compliance Voltage up to ±120 V (CVB120)
  • Input Impedance up to 1000 TΩ (HiZ Probe)
  • FRA interface to 3rd-party electronic loads or potentiostats (FRA Probe)
