    PMC Booster Family

    Current extending boosters add to the already impressive high current capabilities of the PARSTAT MC potentiostat cards by extending the current ranges to either 5 Amps or 10 Amps.

    Designed specifically for the PARSTAT MC system, these boosters are capable of both DC and EIS (AC) experiments and can be installed directly into the PARSTAT MC chassis alongside the PMC-1000 or PMC-2000A cards that you have chosen instead of requiring a booster-only chassis. Not only does this save you money on your project but it also helps you reduce the overall space your new system will occupy in your laboratory. These boosters can also be added after your purchase and are field-upgradeable thanks to the design of the PARSTAT MC chassis.

    Applications and Software

    The PMC Boosters are controlled through VersaStudio software for coordinated experiments with the accompanying PMC-1000 and PMC-2000A potentiostats.

    Key applications that benefit from higher current are:

    • Increased Charge-Discharge rates for energy-storage and energy-conversion devices such as Li-ion batteries and capacitors.
    • Increased AC signal level to improve EIS results on low-impedance, large form-factor cells.
    • Kinetics or Electroplating studies on increased sample sizes or at increased sample rates.
