A comprehensive modular and powerful software
EC-Lab® is a common platform for controlling all Bio-Logic potentiostats / galvanostats , be it single channel or multichannel systems and across all our hardware technologies. It is Windows-based,compatible with either 64-bit or 32-bit operating systems.
EC-Lab® software is a multi-device software able to control several potentiostats from a single interface view. The firmware of the instrument is loaded at interface launch, and hardware control is completely autonomous while the experiment is running.
EC-Lab® enables the user to define a personalized profile to retain favourite settings for screen representations and tool bars. The software allows for remote access to an instrument on a network. When used as a multichannel system, several channels of the unit can be synchronized, grouped or stacked.
Powerful experiment builder
EC-Lab® can execute a series of different modular techniques with wait and loop options added to create complex experimental chain. Within many techniques, the user can create up to 100 unique sequences. Adding or removing sequences and linking techniques can be done easily with “+” and “-“ buttons. The resulting experiment can be saved as a “Custom application” for ease of reusing.
Upon selecting a technique, the corresponding parameter settings are shown as a series of boxes representing the building blocks of the experiment. Most of the parameters in the blocks can be modified during a run and these modifications are then saved in the log and data file. Two additional tabs allow the user to define cell characteristics and more advanced parameters.
Experiment and safety limits
Several experiment limit parameters are available to control the experiment process and/ or protect the electrochemical cell. These limits can either be set for all the experiments in a series or for individual techniques. The experiment can also be setup to terminate or skip to the next sequence on a limit value coming from an external device such as a temperature probe.
External device coupling
EC-Lab® has an advanced external device configuration menu that can be configured to control and record data from a separate instrument, such as a QCM, a RRDE or a thermostatic chamber.
EC-Lab® is now compatible with Windows XP© (SP3), 7, 8 (32 or 64 bits), 10 (32 or 64 bits).
