System Highlights

Interface 1000A

If you're looking for an advanced potentiostat capable of running a variety of techniques for applications such as physical electrochemistry, electrochemical corrosion, battery testing, fuel cell testing, electrochemical noise, and electrochemical frequency modulation then the Interface 1000A is the right potentiostat for you.  

The Interface 1000A also comes in two additional, models.  The Interface 1000B is a more basic poentiostat mostly for studies such as cyclic voltammetry and pulse voltammetry.  The Interface 1000E provides all of the capabilities of the Interface 1000A and also includes electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.  The Interface 1000A can be upgraded to the Interface 1000E with an infield upgrade.  You can get a great instrument that can grow in capabilities with the needs of your lab.  Contact us for more information on upgrading.

More Details

Below are additional details regarding the capabilities of the instrument. Each bullet point contains a list of the type of techniques available for the instrument to run.

  • Physical Electrochemistry  - Techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry and derivatives of these techniques.  
  • Pulse Voltammetry - Techniques such as pulse voltammetry, square wave voltammetry, and associated stripping techniques such as anodic stripping voltammetry.  
  • DC Corrosion - Run standard DC corrosion tests such as polarization resistance, potentiodynamic, cyclic polarization, and galvanic corrosion in addition to a number of others.
  • Electrochemical Energy - Test single-cells and stacks of various batteries, fuel cells or supercapacitors. Includes charge, discharge, cyclic charge-discharge techniques, potentiostatic, galvanostatic, self-discharge, leakage rate, and read cell voltage.
  • Electrochemical Signal Analyzer -  Designed specifically for the acquisition and analysis of time-dependent electrochemical noise signals. Cell voltage and current are continuously monitored at rates from 0.1 Hz to 1 kHz. A full featured set of analysis tools provides powerful analysis features such as statistical analysis, detrending, impedance spectra, and histogram analysis.
  • Electrochemical Frequency Modulation - A non-destructive corrosion rate measurement technique. It allows for measurement of the corrosion rate without prior knowledge of the Tafel constants. In addition, the technique determines the Tafel constants and provides 2 internal validity checks.
  • Critical Pitting Temperature - controls a Gamry Potentiostat, TDC4 Temperature Controller, and associated accessories to automatically measure the Critical Pitting Temperature of a material.
  • Electrochemical Noise - A more general form of electrochemical noise testing. It is also an ECM8 Multiplexer compatible electrochemical noise software package. 
  • eChemDC Toolkit - contains all of the capabilities of the eChemBasic and further extends these capabilities by adding advanced signals and data acquisition modes to simplify implementing experiments like cyclic voltammetry, pulse voltammetry, and dynamic DC corrosion techniques. Also includes more advanced stop tests, particularly useful in fast experiments.
