Interface 1000T

The Interface 1000T has been upgraded to the Interface 1010T with some enhanced features.
Read more on the Interface 1010T and review the specifications.

System Highlights

The Interface 1000T is an entry-level potentiostat designed for undergraduate and graduate teaching labs.  It provides all of the capabilities needed for getting students introduced to physical and analytical electrochemistry.  It even provides for potentisotatic EIS up 20 kHz.  

  • Physical Electrochemistry  - Techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry.   
  • Pulse Voltammetry - Techniques such as differential pulse voltammetry, normal pulse voltammetry, Osteryoung square wave voltammetry, and associated stripping techniques.
  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy - Potentiostatic EIS up to 20 kHz.  

See the Specifications tab for the instrument specifications.  The Interface 1000T can be upgraded to a fully-featured Interface 1000E with an infield upgrade.  This allows you to get a low-cost potentiostat for teaching purposes that can later be upgraded to a fully-capable research-grade potentiostat able to perform experiments for a wide variety of applications.

Reliable and user friendly potentiostat

Rating: 3.7 3.70 Out of 5 Stars

Organization: RIKEN

Application Area: x-ray spectroscopy combined with electrochemistry

"This potentiostat has high reliability and reproducibility. It is possible to use NI's LabView to control the instrument by option. Control program seems also developed using LabView. The program is user friendly, auto range function is useful to quickly view the statues of the cell. Standard package contains dummy cell and noise shield box to calibrate the instrument. Connection cable in the package is also reliable, however it is quite hard to bend and slightly shorter."
