Pstat.SetIERange()

Type: INSTANCE FUNCTION

Purpose: Set the current range.

You can either set an absolute current range or set current range to a range large enough to measure a given current.

Not all ranges are available on specific potentiostats. Please consult your potentiostat operator’s manual for information specific to your potentiostat.

NOTE: The ranges listed below are for 300 mA or 30 mA models. For 750 mA models, multiply the ranges by 2.5. For 600 mA models, multiply the ranges by 2.0.

Usage: RangeSet = Pstat.SetIERange(Range)

       
  Range INDEX

Absolute current range (Full-scale limit)

0 = 3 pA

1 = 30 pA

2 = 300 pA

3 = 3 nA

4 = 30 nA

5 = 300 nA

6 = 3 µA

7 = 30 µA

8 = 300 µA

9 = 3 mA

10 = 30 mA

11 = 300 mA

12 = 3 A

13 = 30 A

14 = 300 A

15 = 3 kA

If you attempt to set a range which is not available for a specific potentiostat, a Parameter Error is issued.

    or  
  Range REAL

Current to be measured. Function picks the best range.

If you attempt to set the range to measure a current greater than Imax for a specific potentiostat, a Parameter Error is issued.

  RangeSet INDEX The new current-range setting.
