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
"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
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.
