Press Release

Enable IPC Update to Shareholders: Company to Offer Potentiostats Priced from $10,000 - $90,000 Beginning Early 2010

 

VALENCIA, CA - December 7, 2009 - Enable IPC Corporation (Other OTC: EIPC) today issued an update to shareholders and interested parties, focusing on the new potentiostat product line being introduced next month by the Company's subsidiary, SolRayo, Inc. The Company's most recent press releases have been focused on the roll-out of this new product. The update, which is included below, discusses the potentiostat product, features, development and when and how to purchase it.

Enable IPC Shareholder Update

About the Enable IPC/SolRayo Potentiostat

Beginning next month, and continuing over the next two to three years, Enable IPC/SolRayo expects to sell between 70 and 100 potentiostat systems, each ranging in price from about $10,000 for a basic unit to approximately $90,000 for the top of the line model. The Company has priced its units to compete favorably with commercially-available systems.

These systems are essential in energy storage device research, characterization and other applications. The Company expects to be a part of a significant increase in global demand for potentiostat systems.

The Company has developed more user-friendly models than those currently available by including additional features it has found useful in its own experience with the systems.

What is a potentiostat?

A potentiostat is a piece of equipment used in a wide range of electrochemistry applications. Today, the term potentiostat is often used in reference to equipment that performs the functions of a potentiostat, galvanostat, and sometimes an impedance analyzer as well.

  • A potentiostat is used to apply voltage to a system and measure the current
  • A galvanostat supplies current and measures the voltage
  • An impedance analyzer applies a high frequency wave and measures the shift between current and voltage to determine impedance (resistance).

The systems are used to test batteries, capacitors, fuel cells, solar devices and sensors, as well as characterize corrosion levels and electroplating. For example, when testing a capacitor with the Companys new system, the researcher can simply connect the capacitor to the potentiostat and type in the parameters of the test the charge/discharge parameters, the number of cycles, the length of time to discharge, the interval between charges and discharges, etc. The researcher can then do other things while the system conducts the test and records all the data. Multiple devices can be tested at the same time, depending on the number of channels on the system. One unique feature on Enable IPCs devices is that the researcher can be notified when the test has begun, is complete or if a problem has arisen (details on this and other features will be released in the coming weeks).

Enable's systems will have accuracy and resolution ranges comparable to those produced by competitors, with options to include electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (or EIS) and low current alternatives.

How did this come about?

In 2008, when SolRayo was first notified about the Wisconsin Energy Independence Fund award, the Company needed to acquire a potentiostat system. For economic reasons, and to include features he felt would be desirable, Kevin Leonard (SolRayos CTO) designed and built a system for the Company's use, rather than purchase a commercially-available unit. In doing so, he wrote a unique and very user-friendly software program with a number of appealing features that provide all the data streams and information required and expected by potentiostat users. He also included some features that, to the best of our knowledge, are simply not available from traditional potentiostat suppliers.

After several months of use, the Company decided to make the same system available to others in the field. The system has been examined and used by a number of outside electrochemists with very positive feedback and in turn the Company has decided to make the units available for purchase.

Enable IPC stands for Intellectual Property Commercialization we turn technologies and ideas into products. This system is a prime example of what we do. The software is unique, the system has a range of flexibility and all the options that users would require and expect.

The full product introduction is slated to begin in January 2010. Systems may be purchased by contacting SolRayo. Initial details on the product can be found on the SolRayo website at:http://instruments.solrayo.com. Full data sheets will be published soon.
