The Solartron Analytical 1280Z Electrochemical Test System offers a high accuracy, wide bandwidth potentiostat / galvanostat and a Frequency Response Analyzer (FRA) in a single compact unit.
Central to the measurement capability of 1280Z are two high resolution digital voltmeters which provide simultaneous voltage and current measurements. Using Solartron’s patented pulse width conversion technique, they have high accuracy, stability and linearity throughout the entire range of the instrument.
The 1280Z has excellent measurement resolution and accuracy down to 1 μV for the reference electrodes and 1 pA for the working electrode, which makes it an ideal choice for measurements where signal levels are extremely low.
The 1280Z uses floating measurements on all connections: it is equally at home measuring corrosion rates on grounded oil pipelines as it is in the laboratory. For safety reasons, it is often necessary to ground laboratory equipment such as autoclaves, a major problem if your instrumentation is not capable of floating measurements.
The 1280Z offers complete flexibility for cell connection: 2-, 3- or 4- terminal measurements can be made with equal ease.
- 2-terminal techniques for general materials / electrochemical testing
- 3-terminal techniques for corrosion / coating applications
- 4-terminal techniques for accurate characterization of batteries and fuel cells, enabling lead resistance and impedance effects to be minimized
