Model 1260A – Impedance/Gain-phase Analyser (FRA)

Solartron Model 1260A - Impedance/Gain-phase Analyser (FRA)
The model 1260A Impedance/Gain-Phase Analyser is the most powerful, accurate and flexible Frequency Response Analyser (FRA) available today. Leading researchers rely on the 1260A daily for measurement integrity and experimental reliability. The instrument has a solid reputation, endorsed in published research papers in fields including:

  • Corrosion studies
  • Battery research and fuel cells
  • Solar cells
  • LCDs
  • Bio-materials
  • Ceramics / composites
  • Electronic component development
  • Civil engineering

Designed to provide cost-effective DC and AC analysis in electrochemical and materials research, the 1260A features an outstanding measurement specification for impedance spectroscopy, with a frequency range extending from 10 µHz to 32 MHz. The 1260A can be operated standalone for high bandwidth impedance tests on materials, or in combination with the 1287A for impedance spectroscopy with a 10 µHz to 1 MHz frequency range. Computer control is via IEEE488 (GPIB) interface, using Solartron’s popular ZPlot/Corrware software.

Model 1255B – LF Frequency Response Analyser

Solartron model 1255B frequency response analyser
Using a single sine technique, the 1255B precisely measures gain and phase between any two points in a system. This fully digital technique is used to assess the performance of both simple and complex mechanical, electronic and electrochemical systems. The 1255B has a 1 MHz frequency range and 1 in 65 million frequency resolution. This instrument can be combined with the 1287A for high performance electrochemical impedance spectroscopy over the frequency range of 10 µHz to 1 MHz. Computer control is via IEEE488 (GPIB) interface, using Solartron’s popular ZPlot/Corrware software. The system is easy-to-use, even for non-technical personnel.
