2049 - Potentiostat / Galvanostat

2049 Potentiostat GalvanostatOld Price, brand new features

This instrument is well suited for routine purposes and long-term applications such as corrosion measurements under stress or whenever it is required to perform continuous measurements without immobilizing higher-cost instrumentation. The Model 2049 is complete with a 4’/2-digit LCD display for clear and accurate reading of both current and potentials. These signals are also permanently available as low-impedance replicas at the front-panel in order to simplify the connection of external devices. The low-noise characteristics make the Model 2049 well suited for low-current applications, while the extreme simplicity of the commands together with the fully-protected circuitry make this potentiostat the ideal choice for industrial and classroom applications.

Operating principle:

operating schemeThe main amplifier A1 contains the power stages and provides to the output current, voltage swing, gain, short-circuit protection and the summing node for the various inputs and feedback. The electrochemical cell is connected with the COUNTER electrode to the output of A 1and the WORKING electrode to the electrical common with a set of calibrated shunt resistors for precise current measurement. The differential amplifier A 2measures the voltage between the REFERENCE and WORKING and provides the negative feedback signal for potentiostatic mode operation. A 3is a unity-gain buffer amplifier for the current signal and for negative feedback in galvanostatic mode. The reference source is connected to a multi-turn potentiometer for precise setting of the cell potential. All signals (current, reference and standard source) can be monitored with the built-in DVM.
