616A Rotating Disk Electrode

The Princeton Applied Research Model 616A Electrode Rotator is a high precision, low mass rotator that performs well with virtually any potentiostat. When connected to Princeton Applied Research electrochemical instrumentation, it uses control lines to give a remote start/stop and speed control. Using the convenient control panel and input jacks, the model 616 can easily be operated for either manual or automated experiments.



Standard features include:
  • Front panel speed controls
  • Protective enclosure
  • Remote analog speed control (input is summed with front panel settings)
  • Front Panel and remote (TTL) on/off switching (using Princeton Applied Research stir-control signals)
  • Remote analog output for speed verification
  • Integral ring-stand for convenient cell mounting
For versatility, a variety of electrode assemblies are available to perform a wide range of experiments, including:
  • High precision corrosion measurements
  • Ultra-trace analytical determinations
  • Automated Levich Plots
  • Hydrodynamically-modulated voltammetry
  • Cyclic stripping voltammetry
