  • Materials Test Systems +

    ModuLab XM MTS
    Our line of Materials Test Systems test combined electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties of dielectrics, insulators and electronic materials.  These systems include specialized accessories:  High Voltage Amplifiers, Cryostats, Furnaces, and Sample Holders for liquids, powders, and solid materials.

    The ModuLab XM MTS can perform time domain (DC) and frequency domain (AC) tests.  Accessories control temperature from cryostat to furnace level and integrate through software control with the core measurement electroncis to create a sustem to study a wide ranges of mateirals.  As with other ModuLab plarogn systems it can be expanded for electrochemical or photoelectrochemical experiments.

    The Materials Lab XM users the same XM based platform to deliver ModuLab performance to a focused application, the study of Materials.  This focused design allows this instrument to occupy a small footprint. ModuLab software includes integrated equivalent circuit analysis, MultiSine and Harmonic Analysis for non-linear materials.  

    The 1260A Gain-Phase Analyzer (or Frequency Response Analyzer) is the cornerstone of FRA technology.  The 1260A can be used as a stand-alone unit, but its applications to Materials is greatly expanded when combined with the 1296A Dielectric Interface.  This solution measures at both high-frequency and high-impedance.

  • ModuLab Modules for Configuration +

    The following are Part Numbers, Description and Notes for configuring the ModuLab XM ECS 

     PART NUMBER Description  
    (EIS requires MFRA)
    XM MAT 1MHz MTS Materials Test System Core Module, DC and EIS
    XM MHV100 MTS High Voltage option (+/-100V AC peak + DC in any combination), DC and EIS
    XM MFA MTS Femto Ammeter (Low Current) option, DC and EIS
    XM MREF MTS Sample/Reference Switching option, for high accuracy dielectric EIS
    XM MBST 2A MTS 2A Booster option (up to 20V using XM HV100, 8V using XM MAT 1MHz),
    DC and EIS
    XM MFRA 1MHz MTS FRA option (frequency range 10 µHz to 1 MHz, swept sine, multi-sine / FFT, harmonics, intermodulation) 
    XM CHAS 04   4 slot chassis 
    XM CHAS 08   8 slot chassis (recommended for future system expandability)  

    Each option module requires one chassis slot, except the XM MBST 2A which requires two slots.
    At least one XM MAT 1MHz is required per chassis, all options are associated with the MAT
    Independent XM ECS channels can be configured by adding groups of modules to the chassis
    Multichannel ModuLab XM ECS and MTS module groups may be operated independently in the same chassis for combined electrochemistry and materials applications
    ModuLab XM software is included with the system (DC and EIS acquisition and analysis including equivalent circuit fitting). ZView software is also compatible with ModuLab XM MTS.
    All option modules are "plug and play" and can be installed by customer, except for XM PSTAT AUX
    System operation requires an Ethernet adaptor to be installed in the PC
