DataSecure -  (WI-FI) Connection Module & Data Safe



The DataSecure module has been designed to fulfill 2 specific functions:  


  • Data storage and back up
  • Never lose your data



  • WI-FI
  • LAN
  • USB
  • Remote/direct


     Ivium wifi

The Ivium DataSecure module stores data from your entire on-going experiment, independent from your PC.  Your data will never be lost. You can "log-on" at any time to stream the available data to your PC.  The Ivium DataSecure module is the connection link between the Ivium potentiostat and your computer. It can connect directly to your WI-FI network, or create its own hotspot. Direct (hard-wired) connection to your computer is also possible via both LAN and USB.

Ivium Technologies is proud to present the first 24bit potentiostats!


24bit potentiostats


The obvious advantage of a 24 bit instruments such as the IviumStat.h and CompactStat.h, compared to a 16 bit instrument, is the possibility to use much smaller increments in applied and measured values (i.e. resolution). This results in better control of your electrochemical process and enables slower scan rates. But did you know that increased resolution also leads to improved accuracy and linearity, better stability and control, and smaller gain drifts?
Additionally, a better resolution allows you to use a larger current range for measuring smaller signals. This means that you can measure a larger signal range without having to switch current ranges. It also means that you can better measure small signals on top of large background signals.
Furthermore: switching current ranges is undesirable because of discontinuities/noise and because it is slow.

The are also significant advantages for EIS/impedance measurements:

  • Faster acquisition - less 're-measurements' required
  • Higher dynamic range - measurement of AC and DC signal component simultaneously
  • Lower amplitude and phase noise - less bit noise/linearity errors, better background noise suppression

MCF cell

Ivium Technologies has developed the MCF cell: a magnetic cell that can be clamped to any (steel) surface. A soft silicon seal prevents leakage, so that the cell can be used in any position, horizontal, vertical or up-side-down.
The MCF cell is constructed from durable materials and can also be used in the field. Among its applications are corrosion studies and EIS-measurements on coatings.

The MCF cell contains a stainless steel electrode, the surface the cell is clamped to can be used as working electrode. If the surface is not electrically accessible, for example in case of coating measurements, a second MCF cell is included to create a full electrochemical cell.

The MCF cell can be filled using a syringe and tube (included) and additional portals are available for the use of reference electrodes.

The ModuLight:
The ModuLight-module is a programmable light source that has been designed to investigate photo-electrical devices, such as solar cells. The add-on module operates in combination with the IviumStat and CompactStat, through the peripheral I/O-port.
Download: ModuLight Brochure

The ModuLight, by default, contains 7 LEDs with wavelengths ranging from 460-740 nm. On request LEDs can be exchanged for others from the same product range.

During operation an LED can be programmatically selected. The sinewave generator of the potentioststat can then be used to modulate the intensity of the LED with a frequency of 10µHz to 2MHz. The extensive Solar cell applications that are included in the Ivium software, allow a full characterization of the solar cell. The functionality includes E/I-curves as a function of the light intensity, IMVS/IMPS, and solar cell modelling that gives all characteristic values of the studied subject.

Light intensity: Can be modulated with the FRA-output of the Ivium-potentiostat from: 10µHz to 2MHz
