EnergyLab XM Potentiostat Galvanostat

EnergyLab
EnergyLab XM is an application specific XM (Xtreme Measurement) potentiostat/galvanostat that is primarily focused on battery / fuel cell / supercapacitor research.

EnergyLab XM includes a reference grade potentiostat/galvanostat, frequency response analyzer (FRA) and 2A booster. The unit may be operated in boosted or unboosted mode (with automatic switching), providing optimum test conditions and accuracy for a wide range of energy devices.

EnergyLab XM’s extreme sensitivity allows complete characterization of prototype low current or low impedance new generation cells.

If high current is needed (for example to measure cells in the sub 100 μΩ range), external power boosters can be connected and automatically controlled, allowing fully integrated high current tests at up to 100 A.

All modes (boosted and unboosted) make use of Solartron Analytical’s unique auxiliary channel capability allowing simultaneous DC/impedance testing of complete cells and anodes/cathodes.

EnergyLab XM’s impedance accuracy contour plot highlights Solartron’s best in class measurement performance, brought to you in a small, lower price package in the new Apps-XM series of products.
