ERZ101 Advanced Electrochemistry System for EIS
  • Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)
  • Cyclic voltammetry (CV), linear sweep voltammetry (LSV) etc.
  • Includes powerful modeling software


ERZ101 Advanced Electrochemistry System contains a set of equipment for Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) and most voltammetric methods.

It comprises:

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) involves applying a small, non-destructive, AC waveform to a sample and measuring the subsequent attenuation and phase shift of the signal. The experiment is repeated over a range of frequencies and the results are modelled as a combination of resistors and capacitors (and other electrical components) which, in turn, can be interpreted as physicochemical phenomena. In particular, a sample that has a layered structure can have the electrical conductivity of the layers determined, and if the dielectric constants are known then the thickness of the layers can also be determined.

EIS is also often used in the characterisation of surface processes, such as corrosion.

The ERZ101 is supplied with Z Navigator operating software and the powerful ZMAN modeling software. It comes with a one year warranty.
