Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Product info Hardware specs


  8-channel Potentiostat/Galvanostat/ZRA    
  19" rack-mountable housing             
  Up to 128 channels/rack  
  Each channel: ±200mA / ±10V FRA/EIS: 10µHz-100kHz    
  • Affordable high-spec electrochemical test system
  • USB / Ethernet interface
  • Each channel:
    - Dedicated  embedded FRA/EIS    
    - 20M datapoints locally stored    
    - Fully independent operation without PC    
    - Dedicated software for Battery and Corrosion testing    

Key features:

• Dedicated application:
  The instrument is designed for applications where multiple cells are operated in parallel for long periods of time, such as battery/fuel cell-testing, electrode development, biotechnology and corrosion.
• Complete solution:
  The OctoStat offers a complete package. The hardware includes a build-in dedicated Frequency Response Analyser for each channel, low current measurement possibility down to 10nA full-scale with pA resolution, and an analog measurement channel for secondary signals such as temperature. All measurement and dataprocessing software is included.
• Safety:
  The compliance (maximum current or potential) of the instrument can be defined by the operator. Thus valuable samples may be protected, and unsafe situations prevented.
• Data security & Connection:
  The OctoStat is equipped with an integrated DataSecure module:
- Data is stored on board independent of the computer.
- Connection of multiple PCs is possible.
• Hardware:
  - Automatic current range selection: 10nA to 100mA/10A
- Automatic variable noise filter and potentiostat/galvanostat stability settings
- Simultaneous acquisition of current/potential and peripheral analog signal
- Real time data display up to 500 pnts/s
- Minimum interval time/resolution: 10µs
- Result optimalisation by automated tuned filters, gain amplifiers and dc-subtraction



The OctoStat is controlled via Ivium's own software. This versatile, yet intuitive software, allows instrument control, data management and analysis, etc. The OctoStat can also be controlled from LabVIEWTM, C++, Delphi, etc. A full suite of software is standard included with each instrument.
