The Interface 1010T #992-00126 (992-126) is a perfect potentiostat for use in undergraduate and graduate teaching labs.

The Interface 1010T is an entry-level potentiostat designed for undergraduate and graduate teaching labs.  It provides all of the capabilities needed for getting students introduced to physical and analytical electrochemistry.  It even provides for potentiostatic EIS up 20 kHz.
  • Physical Electrochemistry  - Techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry.
  • Pulse Voltammetry - Techniques such as differential pulse voltammetry, normal pulse voltammetry, Osteryoung square wave voltammetry, and associated stripping techniques.
  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy - Potentiostatic EIS up to 20 kHz.
See the Specifications tab for the instrument specifications.  The Interface 1010T can be upgraded to a fully-featured Interface 1010E with an infield upgrade.  This allows you to get a low-cost potentiostat for teaching purposes that can later be upgraded to a fully-capable research-grade potentiostat able to perform experiments for a wide variety of applications.
