Product description

Instrument

The Vertex.5A is a versatile entry-level potentiostat which has ±5A / ±10V compliance and optional integrated impedance analyser up to 1MHz.

Automation

The Vertex.5A has a user selectable input or output.

Expandability

The Vertex can optionally be expanded with a True Linear Scan module and/or FRA/EIS capability. Next to that the Vertex is compatible with other Ivium options & modules, such as the HiMUX and CIM, and several Ivium boosters for higher power requirements.

Hardware

  • Automatic current range selection over all available current ranges
  • Automatic variable noise filter and potentiostat/galvanostat stability settings
  • Simultaneous acquisition of current/potential and peripheral signals
  • Real time data display up to 500 pnts/s. Acquisition up to 100,000 pnts/s is stored in instrument memory
  • Applicable scanrates: 1µV/s to 10,000V/s
  • Minimum interval time/resolution: 10µs
  • Result optimisation by automated tuned filters, gain amplifiers and DC-subtraction
  • User selectable floating operation

Software

The Vertex is controlled via Ivium’s own IviumSoft. This versatile, yet intuitive software package allows instrument control, data management and analysis, peripheral instrument control, etc. IviumSoft can also interface with and be controlled from LabVIEWTM, C++, Delphi, etc. A full suite of IviumSoft is included with each instrument as standard.
