ZAHNER ZENNIUM X

Electrochemical Workstation

The ultimate high performance

 

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 X defining the Goldstandard in electrochemical instrumentation.

 

Going through the technical specifications shown 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 12 MHz
  • HDP technology with24 bit AC resolution for highest dynamic accuracy
  • ADF technology for extremely fast CV up to 10 kV/s with continuous slopes for outstanding CV performance
  • Compliance voltage up to ±32 V
  • Software switchable compliance voltage for minimum noise, optimum sample safety and energy efficieny
  • DC voltage ranges ±5 V and ±15 V software controlled perfectly matching the requirements of Lithium battery research
  • AC amplitude 0 - 2 V and 0 - 6 V with 18 bit resolution
  • Modular concept for high flexibility and expandability
  • Bipotentiostat module optional
  • Floating / grounded mode switchable for measuring on a wide range of objects

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

 

The ZENNIUM X is a modular electrochemical workstation including a potentiostat / galvanostat  and a frequency response analyzer (FRA) unit with a frequency range up to 12 MHz at ±4 A and at a compliance voltage of up to ±32 V. With an input impedance of more than 10 TΩ || 5 pF the workstation is suitable for a wide range of electrochemical tasks.

The electrochemical measurement capabilites of the ZENNIUM X workstation can be extented by adding up to ten additional plug-in cards such as EPC42, TEMP/U or PAD4. For example, the EPC42 allows the ZENNIUM X to control up to four additional external devices such as power potentiostats of the PP/XPot-series (boosters) or electrical loads of the EL-series. Thus, our ZENNIUM X electrochemical workstation is able to provide even more advanced measurement methods and allows us to satisfy any of your electrochemical research requirements.
