SolRayo Releases Additional Details on Upcoming Line of Highly Customizable Potentiostat Systems

Published on December 15, 2009 at 9:20 AM

Enable IPC Corporation (PINKSHEETS: EIPC) today announced that its subsidiary, SolRayo, Inc., released additional details on its upcoming line of highly customizable potentiostat systems for use in energy storage characterization and electrochemistry applications. The potentiostats, which the Company plans to make available beginning in January 2010 will range in price from $10,000 for a basic unit to $90,000 for a top of the line unit. Enable IPC (Intellectual Property Commercialization) focuses on turning technologies into products and bringing them to market.

The SolRayo potentiostat system can be used to test and characterize batteries, capacitors, fuel cells, solar cells, sensors, corrosion monitoring and other electrochemistry applications.

"One of the competitive advantages of our systems over other units is how easy it is to use," said Kevin Leonard, SolRayo CTO. "The complex software of some competing units can be less user friendly."

Mr. Leonard continued, "For example, one person who tested the system complained that a competitor wanted him to attend a class on how to use the system. We showed him our system and, in half an hour, he was running his own experiments. He was very impressed."

"Our surveys of potential customers showed that there is a strong desire for an out-of-the-box, ready-to-go system without the necessity of inputting programs and spending time trying to figure out how to make it work," said Dr. Mark Daugherty, SolRayo CEO. "With our system, the user takes three easy steps and the experiment begins. It's very simple. Our intuitive software allows electrochemists to focus on their research and measurement by getting up and running quickly and easily and without sacrificing accuracy, range, resolution or other important performance parameters."

SolRayo plans to offer three series of devices, each with certain basic capabilities. Customers can choose the number of channels they want and the capabilities they need. All series will have:

-- An output voltage range of +/-20V
-- Maximum current range of +/-2A continuous
-- 5 current ranges from 200µA to 2A
-- Low current option\ with minimums in the tens of pA range
-- Optional built-in computer
-- SolRayo software that has with enhanced features not available on other systems (more about these features will be disclosed in the coming weeks)

The economical 1000 series will handle between 1 and 17 channels and will be able to accomplish basic testing.

The 2000 series will provide up to 14 channels and also has electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) capability in the kHz range.

The top of the line 3000 series will provide up to 6 channels with the same features and options of the 2000 series, but with EIS capability in the MHz range.

SolRayo believes this level of customization is new to the industry. The Company expects to make this major step forward in technology available to the public in January 2010.

Detailed data sheets on each series will be released in the coming weeks.
