This manual is intended to be a detailed description of the various functions of the epsilon electrochemistry software, together with a brief description of the available electrochemical techniques and their applications (there are also a number of notes available from BASi that provide more detail about these applications). These functions can all be accessed from the drop-down menus. Some are also available as icons on the tool bar, but few have keyboard shortcuts. The available routes will be noted in the appropriate sections. If you are new to this instrument, we recommend that, once the instrument has been installed, you first try the detailed experiment listed here that provides a step by step guide to the operation of some of the more basic functions of the epsilon.
The epsilon software runs in the Windows operating system. Wherever possible, we have maintained the style of Windows in the look and feel of our software. We use similar drop-down menus, list boxes, dialog boxes, radio buttons, help screens, etc. If you are already familiar with Windows, the transition to this software will be smooth. If Windows is new to you, we urge you to learn it first, using the Windows tutorial provided with your operating system.
It is important to note there are a number of different configurations for the epsilon, which differ in their capabilities. It is clearly shown in the text of this manual whether a function or electrochemical technique is included as standard on epsilon instrument, or whether it is only available as an optional addition (at an additional cost).
