MT-Lab Software

An intuitive and comprehensive software

MT-Lab® is the user-friendly software package dedicated to the control of Bio-Logic’s impedance analyzer, the acquisition of the impedance data and the temperature. It also allows the control of many temperature control units:

  • High temperature furnace (HTF-1100)
  • Intermediate Temperature System (ITS)
  • Temperature control systems using Eurotherm 22xx and 35xx series controllers

Open-circuit & short circuit compensation.

MT-Lab® software is provided with a compensation protocol for the compensation of residual impedance due to cell cables and/or sample holders

Temperature control management

MT-Lab® software includes a temperature control interface with five temperature modes in the temperature range -40°C to 1100 °C. The setpoint temperature range, the temperature ramps are adapted to the specifications of the TCU connected to MT-Lab® software. Up to three temperatures can be managed and acquired by MT-Lab® software: TTCU, TSample holder and TSample.

A complete graphic package

MT-Lab® is an easy to use software. The settings and graphs displayable on one screen view. The software provides automatically the processed electrical parameters like the electrical conductivity (σ), the electrical resistivity (ρ), the complex permittivity ɛ* and dielectric loss tangent (tan δ). It also includes ZFit, the powerful Equivalent circuit modeling tool used for modeling EIS data with equivalent circuits.

Version history

MT-Lab® v1.21 (online May. 11, 2017)

IMPROVEMENTS

Optimization of MT-Lab temperature control algorithm with HTF-1100 furnace. During a temperature ramping (heating) the measurements take less time than previously. Loading of the setting made by HTF-1100 furnace is now possible with offline MT-Lab. The floating window “Temperature control” was renamed as “temperature plots”. The unit on the time axis (x axis) is now hh:mm instead of date.“Permittivity” plot was removed from “Bode” tab of the graphic window.

BUG CORRECTIONS

The bug of “Hold last temperature” feature observed in the version 1.20 was fixed
Minor bug corrections

MT-Lab® v1.20 (online July. 01, 2016)

NEW FEATURES

Control of the Intermediate Temperature System through USB connection.
Management of the temperature of the ITS, CESH and the sample

IMPROVEMENTS

Temperature display with 1 digit after decimal (instead of 2 digits) in temperature plot window. Furnace setpoint is replaced by Control Unit Setpoint in the temperature plot window. Furnace Temperature Unit is replaced by Control Temperature Unit in the temperature plot window and data.

MT-Lab® v1.13 (online September. 30, 2015)

NEW FEATURES

New ZFit module inspired from our popular EC-Lab software. Improved GUI. More functionalities (ZSim, Multi-cycle, more circuit selection).

MT-Lab® v1.12 (online December. 02, 2014)

NEW FEATURES

Management of New temperature controller from Eurotherm: model 22xx and model 35xx.

IMPROVEMENT

Possibility to program temperature steps in two modes: cyclic mode and advanced mode. Option at the end of a temperature cycle to select between holding the last temperature value or returning to 0°C. Temperature is added and saved in the impedance data file. A programmable soak time has been added after the stabilization phase. Negative temperature values can be set in the temperature list if supported by the temperature controller.

BUG CORRECTIONS

Size of the settings window corrected. Scroll bar to scroll down the settings added. Setpoint to 0°C fixed.
