Product description

Instrument

The Vertex.100mA is a versatile entry-level potentiostat which has ±100mA / ±10V compliance and optional integrated impedance analyser up to 1MHz.

Automation

The Vertex.100mA has a peripheral port to allow external interfacing and compatibility with several Ivium modules (see expandability).

Expandability

The Vertex.100mA can optionally be expanded with a True Linear Scan module, Bipotentiostat, and/or FRA/EIS capability. Next to that the Vertex is compatible with other Ivium options and 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 3,000 pnts/s. Acquisition up to 300,000 pnts/s is stored in instrument memory
  • Applicable scanrates: 1µV/s to 10,000V/s
  • Minimum interval time: 3.33µs (0.125µs resolution)
  • Result optimisation by automated tuned filters, gain amplifiers and DC-subtraction
  • User selectable floating operation

Software

The Vertex.100mA 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.
