Additionally the system can be completely controlled the Sciospec Com-Interface. Custom code in Java and C are just as possible as the integration in LabView or Matlab.


    Sync Ports

    Synchronize with the rest of the world

    For synchronization with other devices and integration into more complex laboratory setups ultra fast and highly flexible programmable hardware synchronization through sync in/out connectors (digital) is available in every ISX-3.


    IOport

    For simple lab automation and control/read out of additional hardware or sensors the ISX-3 can optionally be equipped with the IOport. This is a D-Sub-Mikro-D Verbinder with 8 digital IOs and 2 temperature sensor connections. As with the the ExtensionPort the digital IOs can also be configured as serial interfaces (I2C, UART).

    ExtensionPort System

    For flexible extension of its application possibilities application specific frontends and adapters can be connected through theExtensionPort system. Interface and specifications for theExtensionPort are fully user accessible dramatically simplifying customer`s developments for and with the ISX-3. The connector carries measurement signals for 2,3 and 4-electrode configuration, supply rails and digital IOs, which can optionally be configured as serial interfaces (I2C, UART).

    The ISX-5

    Multichannel electrical impedance spectroscopy

    Your plans are a little bigger, than what a single impedance analyzer can handle? How about having multiple full featured impedance analyzers within one instrument - working in perfect harmony? Up to eight impedance measurement channels can be integrated into one ISX-5 and provide true fully-parallel ultra-fast measurements thanks to the powerful signal processing backend. Multiple ISX-5 chassis can be joined together to enable even higher channel counts.

    For even more flexibility and more demanding complex measurement setups check out the MSX modular platform - the multi type module extension of the ISX-5.
