Elchemea Data Acquisition

Elchemea Data Acquisition is a software package designed to ease the acquisition of impedance spectra, cyclic voltametry and chrono potentiometry / amperometry.
The main features of Elchemea are:
  • Free and open source (distributed under the GPL).
  • Supports a large variety of frequency response analyzers as well as electrochemical interfaces including:
    • Solartron 1260/1260A
    • Solartron 1250
    • Solartron 1252/1255A/1255B
    • Solartron 1280
    • Solartron 1286/1287
    • Hioki 3322/3532
    • Stanford SR830 (A lock-in amplifier which in some cases can be used as a frequency response analyzer)
  • Can also work with Keithley 2700 scanning multimeter for DC voltage and temperature measurements
  • Browser based (no client installation necessary for remote control).
  • Impedance plots with fixed unity aspect ratio (a half circle IS a half circle).
  • Supports impedance spectra acquisition, potential sweeps as well as DC-measurements (chrono amperometry/potentiometry
  • Interfaces directly with Elchemea Analytical for easy fitting of acquired impedance spectra as well as RFCcontrol for general test station control and data logging
  • Multi user system with individual configuration for each user
  • Automatic file numbering making it impossible to overwrite data files thus eliminating data loss from that
  • Possible to control data acquisition from external systems through a TCP:IP socket interface
