This is an economic, high precision potentiostat/galvanostat/impedance analyzer especially designed for electrochemical research with  batteries, fuel cells, corrosion, sensor and solar cells. It is supplied with three software packages:  

  1. BATe control software specific to battery and fuel cell research
  2. CORe control software specific to corrosion related experiments
  3. EIS/EAs control software for general electrochemical experiments.  


The ZIVE SP100 electrochemical workstation is ideal for both fundamental research, as well as product development, and quality assurance programs.  This potentiostat excells in the following general categories:

  • new sensors 
  • corrosion/coatings
  • electrode materials
  • membranes
  • conducting polymers
  • battery materials
  • fuel cells
  • supercapacitors
  • photovoltaic materials and solar cells
The ZIVE SP100 operates in the following modes:
  • potentiostat, for voltammetric and chronoamperometric experiments
  • galvanostat
  • ZRA (zero resistance ammeter)
  • FRA (frequency response analyzer) for EIS (electrochemical impedance spectometry)
Analysis software included with the system is the acclaimed ZMAN analysis software.  Please contact your local eDAQ representative to discuss the very large number of analysis features within ZMAN.  

See the brochure for more details.
