Software Features
CS studio software provides users a versatile smoothing/differential/ integration kit, which can complete the calculation of peak height, peak area and peak potential of CV curves.

CS studio also provides powerful non-linear fitting on Butler-Volmer equation of polarization curve. It can calculate Tafel slope, corrosion current density, limitation current, polarization resistance, corrosion rate. It can also calculate the power spectrum density, noise resistance and noise spectrum resistance based on the electrochemical noise measurements.

CS Studio software can achieve real time saving of the measuring data. The data can be automatically saved even in case of sudden power off.
CS studio kit has a built-in versatile timing policy for combined measurements, which can facilitate the automation of experiments and save time.
Battery analysis: charge & discharge efficiency, capacity, specific capacitance, charge & discharge energy etc.

Technical advantages
1. Impedance (EIS)
CS potentiostat applies correlation integral algorithm and dual-channel over-sampling technique, and has strong anti-interference ability. It is suitable for EIS measurements of high-impedance system. It can also be used to obtain Mott-Schottky curve and differential capacitance curve.
2. Polarization curve
Polarization curve / Tafel plot can be obtained. The user can set the anodic reversal current (passivation film breakdown current) of the cyclic polarization curve to determine material’s pitting potential and protection potential and evaluate the its susceptibility to intergranular corrosion. The software employs non-linear fitting to analyze polarization curve, and can make fast evaluation of material’s anti-corrosion ability and inhibitors.

3. Voltammetry
It can do the following experiments: Linear Sweep Voltammetry (LSV), Cyclic Voltammetry (CV), Staircase Cyclic Voltammetry (SCV), Square wave voltammetry (SWV), Differential Pulse Voltammetry (DPV), Normal Pulse Voltammetry (NPV), AC voltammetry (ACV), Stripping voltammetry etc. It integrates calculation of peak area, peak current and standard curve analysis.

4. Electrochemical Noise
With high-resistance follower and zero-resistance ammeter, it measures the natural potential/current fluctuations in corrosion system. It can be used to study pitting corrosion, galvanic corrosion, crevice corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking etc. Through noise spectrum, we can evaluate the inducement, growth and death of metastable pitting and crack. Based on calculation of noise resistance and pitting index, it can complete localized corrosion monitoring.
5. Full floating measurement
CS workstation uses full-floating working electrode. It can be used for autoclave electrochemical measurements, on-line corrosion monitoring of metallic components under the ground (rebar in concrete, etc.)
