  • PARSTAT MultiChannel Family +

    PARSTAT MC Family
      The PARSTAT MC (PMC) Family consists of the PARSTAT MC Chassis and several models of potentiostats: PMC-1000, PMC-2000A, PMC-200. This series of potentiostats is defined by offering superior performance as standard. These models complement each other. Both of these single channel potentiostats operate in VersaStudio software with all techniques available, including Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy up to high frequency.  
    • The PMC-1000 provides high current and wide dynamic current range
    • The PMC-2000A provides 6-WIRE measurement and high polarization voltage.
    • The PMC-200 provides high-throughput with 2 potentiostats per module and high-resolution.
  • Applications and Software +

    Applications and Software
    Users can select from the different groups of techniques that are available:

    providing charge-discharge curves (including CC-CV) for Capacity-vs-Cycle Number or Coulombic Efficiency as well as dedicated techniques such as Constant Power, Constant Resistance and Potentiostatic / Galvanostatic Intermittent Titration Technique (PITT, GITT)

    providing fundamental electrochemical techniques such as Cyclic Voltammetry, Chrono-techniques. The Advanced Voltammetry techniques also include Pulse Voltammetry methods.

    providing multiple corrosion analysis techniques, including the most common ASTM standards such as Linear Polarization Resistance (LPR, ASTM G59), Tafel (ASTM G5), Cyclic Polarization (ASTM G61), etc.

    may be added to any system to provide Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy techniques
