The PP-Series potentiostats are controlled by an EPC42, a plug-in module for the Electrochemical Workstations IM6 and Zennium. Due to the built-in microprocessor, each EPC42 can address up to four PPSeries potentiostats. Up to four EPC42 cards can be installed in an IM6 or an Zennium. In total, up to 16 PPs can be controlled by one IM6/Zennium. Each potentiostat will hold the control parameters from one access to the next one, so that no potential or current disturbances can occur while scanning the potentiostats. If series measurements are performed with more than one PP-Series potentiostat, spectra are taken from all modules in a definable order.
The PP-Series is embedded completely in the IM6/Zennium environment. Thus, all acquisition and analysis techniques that run on the IM6/Zennium can be applied with the power potentiostats as well. The installation of one or more PP-Series potentiostat will upgrade your IM6/Zennium to an even more versatile, high-current electrochemical workstation.
The PP-Series potentiostats can also be controlled by a Windows®-PC. In this case they provide methods, summarized in the table below. They also work as a LabView® Virtual Instrument under the LabView® software. To implement the PP-Series potentiostats into existing test environment, a supporting DLL is available on demand.
You can control the PP-Series potentiostats in a mixed mode with an IM6/Zennium and a PC in parallel. Both devices can be connected and disconnected during operation.
