CorrWare, ZPlot and MultiStat software packages provide the most comprehensive range of control, measurement and analysis facilities for electrochemical and materials research.
These packages support systems based on our models 1287, 1285 and 1470 and the 12XX series of frequency response analyzers.
The software makes it simple to set up and control experiments, acquire data and display results in the required format. There is no complex programming involved, leaving the researcher to concentrate totally on analyzing the results.
CorrWare for DC Analysis:
Corrware, with its companion data display and analysis program CorrView, is able to run a wide range of DC electrochemical tests using Solartron single channel 128x series potentiostats. It is the ideal tool for corrosion analysis, battery / fuel cell development and general electrochemistry.
CorrWare DC electrochemical experiments include:
Static and dynamic polarization
Open circuit vs time
Potentiostatic and potentiodynamic
Galvanostatic and galvanodynamic
Potential and current square waves
Potential scan and hold
Electrochemical (E&I) noise
Galvanic square wave
Galvanic cycle (battery test)
Linear and anodic polarization scans
CorrView provides the most comprehensive range of analysis functions available for DC electrochemical data, including trend overlays, Tafel and line fitting techniques, data integration etc.
Data can easily be exported into other Windows applications for additional analysis and report generation.
ZPlot for impedance analysis:
ZPlot, with its companion data display and analysis program ZView, is simply the most flexible and powerful impedance software available today.
ZPlot, when operated together with CorrWare, is able to control Solartron single channel 12xx series potentiostats and frequency response analyzers to run a variety of electrochemical impedance tests in potentiostatic and galvanostatic modes. Applications include corrosion studies, coatings investigations and battery research.
ZPlot stand alone is able to control the Solartron 1260 impedance analyzer for advanced materials research into polymers, ceramics and composites.
ZPlot experimental methods include:
Sweep frequency, AC amplitude, DC polarization
Impedance vs time
ZView provides all facilities required for the detailed analysis of impedance data including a very powerful and easy to use equivalent circuit fitting routine that allows interpretation of the raw impedance data in terms of cell parameters such as diffusion rate, series resistance, polarization resistance etc.
Bode, complex plane and 3D plot formats are available and data can easily be exported to other Windows packages for further analysis.
Multistat is a combined impedance / DC measurement package designed exclusively for use with the Solartron CellTest® System comprising of multichannel1470E potentiostats and 145x series modular frequency response analyzers (FRAs).
Multistat uses a data organization program called Data Explorer to efficiently store and retrieve multi-channel data and the integrated CorrView and ZView programs provide comprehensive data analysis facilities.
Multistat's intuitive design builds upon the capabilities of CorrWare and ZPlot and those users with experience of these packages will adapt to the MultiStat software with ease.
With all of these packages, data may be viewed in real time while previously collected data is analyzed. The software is the perfect complement to Solartron’s range of test instrumentation.
