The new 600+, replacement for the Reference 600™, is a high-performance potentiostat/galvanostat/ZRA particularly suitable for applications in physical electrochemistry, sensors, coatings, and corrosion.
Key features of the 600+ include:
•Designed for fast, low-current measurements •Maximum Applied Potential - ±11 V •EIS - 10 μHz - 5 MHz
For techniques including: •Physical Electrochemistry •Pulse Voltammetry •Electrochemical Energy
The Reference 600+ is a high-performance, research-grade potentiostat/galvanostat/ZRA designed for fast, low-current measurements. It does well for a variety of applications such as physical electrochemistry (especially at microelectrodes), fast cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical corrosion, electrochemical noise measurements, paints and coatings, and sensors.
It has a number of auxiliary input and outputs designed to help you interface or control ancillary equipment such as a rotating disc electrode. It also has a thermocouple input for temperature measurements.
The Reference 600+ comes fully equipped to perform electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The Accuracy Contour Plot shown below provides a detailed look at the performance you can expect from your instrument in real-world situations. The results include the cell cable.
