Ribbon Bar Command: Export

Previous topic Next topic  

The commands Export and Export all Simulations open a standard Windows File dialog box for specifying the path and the name of the file to which the data are exported. The first command exports only the active simulation while the second command starts a loop that enables the user to export all simulations involved in the active simulation document file by file.  Two export filters are available:


Export Filter: User Format (*.use)

Both the simulated current curve and the simulation parameters (electrode geometry and area, scan rate, species concentration etc.) will be exported in use-format.


Description of the use-file format:


experimental parameters:

key_word_1: Value_1

key_word_2: Value_2


species parameters:

[name of species_1] (M/l): Canal_1

[name of species_2] (M/l): Canal_2



filter settings:

fmin_1: fmin_value_1  ,  fmax_1: fmax_value_1

fmin_2: fmin_value_2  ,  fmax_2: fmax_value_2

fmin_3: fmin_value_3  ,  fmax_3: fmax_value_3

fmin_4: fmin_value_4  ,  fmax_4: fmax_value_4

fmin_5: fmin_value_5  ,  fmax_5: fmax_value_5  

fmin_6: fmin_value_6  ,  fmax_6: fmax_value_6

fmin_7: fmin_value_7  ,  fmax_7: fmax_value_7



experimental FT-data:

number of S (V), E (V), I (A) triples: N

S_1, E_1 , I_1

S_2, E_2 , I_2



S_N, E_N , I_N

source program: DigiElch for Windows
program version: 3.0
file type: FT

key_word_i and Value_i
key word and value referring to the i-th parameter. The value must be in point-format and separated from the key word by a colon. The key words are the same as the parameter names used on the Property Page: Simulation Parameters. For example,


experimental parameters:

Pre-Equilibrium: enabled

Diffusion: Semi-Infinite 1D

Geometry: Spherical (Hg)

Mass (mg): 4.95

Ru (Ohm): 0

Cdl (F): 0

Temp. (K): 298.2

C1 (F/V): 0

C2 (F/V²): 0

C3 (F/V³): 0

C4 (F/V²V²): 0

dEac (V): 0.03

f (Hz): 71.4286

AC-Cycles): 100

Phase Angle: 0

dEdc (V): 8.54492e-005

log2(Data Points): 14

simulated background correction (1 = true, 0 = false): 0

Estart (V):-0.7

Segment: 1

Eend (V): -1.4

v (V/s): 1

Segment: 2

Eend (V): -0.7

v (V/s): 1

name of species_i and Canal_i
the name of the i-th species in brackets and the analytical concentration in point-format. For example
[NiL] (M/l): 0.001
[NiL-] (M/l): 0
[DP] (M/l): 0.1
[NiLDP] (M/l): 0
[NiLDP-] (M/l): 0

fmin_value_i,  fmax_value_i
i=1: fmin_value_1 = fmax_value_1 = factor in DC LP
i=2: fmin_value_2 = fmax_value_2 = factor in AC HP
i=3: fmin-factor and fmax-factor in Fundamental Harmonic BP
i=4: fmin-factor and fmax-factor in Second Harmonic BP
i=5: fmin-factor and fmax-factor in Third Harmonic BP
i=6: fmin-factor and fmax-factor in Fourth Harmonic BP
i=7: fmin-factor and fmax-factor in User Definedc BP

the number of data couples

S_i, E_i and I_i
numbers (separated by comma) representing the i-th Signal-Voltage-Current-triple
S: applied signal (AC + DC component)
E: DC component only
I: total FT-CV current (DC+AC components)




Export Filter: E-I-Couples (*.txt)

Only the simulated current curve but not the simulation parameters (electrode geometry and area, scan rate, species concentration etc.) will be exported in the following form:

simulated data:
number of E (V), I (A) couples: N

E_1 separator I_1
E_2 separator I_2

E_3 separator I_3
E_4 separator I_4


E_N separator I_N


the number of data couples

one of the following characters: 'Space', 'Tab', 'Comma' or 'Semicolon'

E_i and I_i are numbers representing the i-th Voltage-Current-couple


Numbers can be formatted using either point or comma. The formatting of numbers and type the separator can be specified under  Export Data (*.txt) on the Properties window.


tipbulbNote that data are always exported in classical current convention (i.e. cathodic current is positive).
