The CompreDrive is an electrochemical laboratory-press designed for solid state electrochemistry research under active force and temperature control.
With the CompreDrive, uniaxial forces up to 75 kN (e.g. 663 MPa @ 12 mm, 1.7 GPa @ 6 mm) can be applied and kept constant on the sample with unprecedented accuracy by the active force regulation system.
Unlike typical active presses the CompreDrive uses an ultra-high resolution servo drive for force regulation instead of a hydraulic system. This allows for high positioning speeds with a minimum step width of <10 nm.
The sample is placed inside a fully sealable, specialized measuring cell (CompreCell), which enables the handling of air-sensitive samples.
Temperature control is achieved by different types of mantles, which are supplied based on your requirements. The CompreDrive hardware supports a temperature range of -40 to +250 °C.
The included software CompreDriveControl allows an interconnection of thermocontroller/analyzer software/CompreDrive, which enables individual, automated procedures.
- 840104: No temperature control, for measurements at ambient temperature.
- 840105: Heating option. A cell mantle utilizing an electric heater. It allows heating up to 250°C without active cooling.
- 840106: Heating & Cooling option. A hollow cell mantle that allows active heating & cooling via an external circulating thermostat. The range is limited by the thermostat, with a max. range of -40 - 250 °C.
