High compliance, research-grade instrument

Stanford Research Systems

The EC301 gives electrochemists the opportunity to equip their labs with high compliance, research-grade instrumentation at a very attractive price. Stand-alone front-panel operation allows easy use in the field or in handling routine electrode preparation. The free Windows software (SRSLab) has routines for all major electrochemical experiments and can be downloaded from the SRS web site. The EC301 has an open command set which allows scientists to write their own unique waveforms and even write custom software.


  • ±30 V compliance voltage
  • ±1 A maximum current
  • Up to ±20A power booster (opt)
  • ±15 V polarization range
  • Free full-featured Windows software
  • Built-in EIS
  • GPIB and Ethernet interfaces

The intuitive front panel of the EC301 allows you to quickly and easily set up several scan types (CV, LSV, steps and holds). Unlike many competitive models, the EC301 is a stand-alone instrument - you don't need to use a computer. The array of indicator LEDs make it easy to know the state of the instrument at a glance.

The SRSLab software supports all the major electrochemical techniques including voltammetry, pulsed waveforms, step techniques, and EIS. You can even design your own custom measurements. Data is acquired over the TCP/IP interface. The software lets you easily configure sequences of experiments and shows you the data as they are generated. The data is easily exported to spreadsheets and graphing packages.

The EC301 was designed with electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) in mind. Instead of employing driven shields, we bring the measurement close to the cell. This means higher accuracy and less susceptibility to parasitic effects. Shunt resistor current measurements in all ranges enhance control loop stability, enabling EIS at high frequencies. An external frequency response analyzer (FRA) can be used measure EIS at frequencies up to 1 MHz using analog connections. The EC301 performs stand-alone EIS measurements up to 100 kHz.
