Interface 1010E Potentiostat

If you're looking for a full-featured potentiostat capable of performing all techniques, including electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, for applications such as physical electrochemistry, electrochemical corrosion, battery testing, fuel cell testing, dye solar cell testing, and sensor development, then the Interface 1010E is the right potentiostat for you.

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy

Gamry provides Accuracy Contour Plots for every one of our potentisotats that is EIS-capable.  The accuracy contour plot provides a detailed look at the performance you can expect from your potentiostat in real-world situations. The results include the cell cable.  Accuracy contour plots are important because they let you compare the performance of potentiostats from different manufacturers to ensure you are getting the best possible measurement.

Flexible Configurations

The Interface 1010E potentiostat can be configured as a single-channel potentiostat, bipotentiostat, or multichannel-potentiostat.  Gamry provides you with the flexibility you need to get more done.

More Details

Below are additional details regarding the capabilities of the Interface 1010E potentiostat. Each bullet point contains a list of the type of techniques available for the potentiostat to run.

  • Physical Electrochemistry  - Techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry and derivatives of these techniques.  
  • Pulse VoltammetryTechniques such as pulse voltammetry, square wave voltammetry, and associated stripping techniques such as anodic stripping voltammetry.  
  • DC CorrosionRun standard DC corrosion tests such as polarization resistance, potentiodynamic, cyclic polarization, and galvanic corrosion in addition to a number of others.
  • Electrochemical EnergyTest 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 ModulationA 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 Temperaturecontrols a Gamry Potentiostat, TDC4 Temperature Controller, and associated accessories to automatically measure the Critical Pitting Temperature of a material.
  • Electrochemical NoiseA more general form of electrochemical noise testing. It is also an ECM8 Multiplexer compatible electrochemical noise software package. 
  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy - includes experimental scripts for potentiostatic, galvanostatic and hybrid impedance spectroscopy experiments in addition to single frequency techniques like Mott-Schottky. We also have our unique power-leveling multisine technique that improves signal-to-noise across the spectrum. On the analysis side, it provides tools for fitting spectra to equivalent circuit models, Kramers-Kronig transform for data validation and a graphical model editor. Our software even includes a script for EIS simulation.
  • eChemDC Toolkitcontains 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.
  • eChemAC - Includes full capabilities of eChemDC Toolkit plus allows electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and EFM experiments.

"We're really pleased with the 1010E. The wide current range covers all our needs and the available sense lines allow all kinds of complex configurations. The software works nicely and is really clean and structured, but the Echem Analyst could be improved by adding a few more features (we were told that a new version is in the making, though). What we also really like is the excellent galvanic isolation of the unit, removing any ground loop issue in our setup. Service by the distributor C3-Analysentechnik in Germany and Gamry in the background has been stellar. One of the few companies that actually help you with complex experiments and implement new features also after the sale."

"I am not an electrochemist, and yet I have been able to run a number of basic experiments with relative ease. The Gamry software is pretty straightforward and the online software documentation is fairly thorough. Though I have come across several parameters I didn't understand, a phone call with the customer support cleared it up. I was able to quickly reach an experienced electrochemist who could point me in the right direction."

I personally have been using Gamry potentiostats (of different models) for over a decade and they are great. Gamry has been very reliable source of producing the results with minimum service needs under good user use of the tool. It is easy to follow and Gamry provides very nice notes to know the fundamentals on various measurement protocols. They provide after-sale care by providing any-time assistance as well as email notifications apart from their web support. Worth spending money to buy Gamry Instrument tools, in particular, the potentiostat."

Application Area: Electrochemical deposition of thin films.

"The 1010E performs every technique I was interested in at a very affordable price. I actually linked two together to form a bipotentiostat, which was a seamless experience. I had a fairly unique technique that I wanted to try, so I was originally looking for a potentiostat that was easily modifiable. The experiment files are actually all adjustable with a text editor, so with a little programming experience, it's easy to manipulate the software to perform any type of potential program. The support at Gamry was even willing to program quite a bit of it for me (even after about a year of owning the instrument)!"
