Our Electrochemical Workstations ZENNIUM X / ZENNIUM Pro / ZENNIUM  base on an universal and modular data acquisition system. Together with the THALES software package we offer all standard electrochemical methods at a mouse click.



CIMPS is an universal photo- and spectro-electrochemical workstation for a wide field of applications. You can easily extend the basic CIMPS system with various options for special fields of photo-electrochemical research.


Energy Storage & Conversion

Our power potentiostats, electronic loads and multi-channels acquisition systems provide a smart system for research and investigation on batteries, fuel cells and super caps.



Electrochemical noise has become popular as a new method of corrosion detection and prevention. ZAHNER has developed the CorrElNoise® technique, the first method to obtain both, potential noise and current noise from one electrochemical source.


fF Probe

The femto-Farad Probe can measure very low capacitance with a resolution of 0.1 fF. Due to the transimpedance princible the fF Probe is designated for the application on two-pole objects.

The femto-Farad Probe works as a front-end to the IM6/Zennium-potentiostat. Apart from its limited current capability, all basic functionalities of the Thales software are supported. In particular impedance spectroscopy can be applied. Due to the fact, that the primary measurement magnitude is the complex impedance, besides the sample capacity, resistive and DC contributions can be determined as well.
