Rotating disk and rotating ring disk electrodes

The Autolab rotating disk (RDE) and rotating ring disk (RRDE) electrodes are high-precision and low-friction rotators which can be used to create and control convective mass transport in an electrochemical cell. The rotation rate can be controlled either manually or directly through the software.

The mercury contacts used in these rotators ensure that the electrical contact to the electrodes remains noise-free at any rotation rate.

Fast and accurate temperature control

The Autolab RHD Microcell HC is the ideal solution for fast and reliable temperature-controlled experiments. Consisting of a temperature controller and a cell stage with Peltier element, the Autolab RHD Microcell HC is designed to accommodate a large choice of specially designed electrochemical cells. The temperature can be controlled either manually or through the NOVA software.

The electrochemical cells designed for the Autolab RHD Microcell HC system suit all experimental requirements. This combination allows you to perform electrochemical measurements using all the available electrochemical techniques in order to determine relevant parameters like impedance and conductivity over a wide range of temperatures.

Products for third-party instrument

In order to enable even more flexibility in electrochemical experiments, Metrohm Autolab offers interfaces to control third-party devices.

Electronic Load Interface: This generic interface can be used to control electronic loads or power supplies in experiments involving measurements at very high power (Keysight and TDI).
The Metrohm Autolab Electronic Load Interface is compatible with the products of the following companies:
Electronic Load Interface

Voltage Multiplier: When used with the differential amplifier of the Metrohm Autolab potentiostat/galvanostat, this extension allows you to expand the measurable voltage range to up to 100 V.

The Voltage Multiplier extension can be used for electrochemical measurements on battery and fuel cell stacks.
