Single Channel



The PGSTAT204 combines the small footprint with a modular design. The instrument includes a base potentiostat/galvanostat with a compliance voltage of 20 V and a maximum current of 400 mA or 10 A in combination with the BOOSTER10A. The potentiostat can be expanded at any time with one additional module, for example the FRA32M electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) module.

The Multi Autolab is a multi channel potentiostat/galvanostat based on the compact Autolab PGSTAT204. It consist of a Multi Autolab Cabinet which can be fitted with up to 12 M204 modules. Each M204 is a completely independent potentiostat/galvanostat, allowing you to perform different measurements on each channel at the same time.

The Multi Autolab can be controlled from up to three different computers simultaneously, allowing to share the available channels among different users.

The Multi Autolab instruments can be complemented by a selection of optional modules. Each M204 module can be coupled to one optional module in the instrument. The maximum number of optional modules is 6. Optional modules or additional M204 modules can be installed at any time.

For trace concentrations (10 μg…10 mg absolute water content), coulometry is the ideal method for determining water in liquids, solids and gases. Furthermore, coulometry is an absolute method, so no titer determination is necessary. With the 851 Titrando coulometric titrations can be performed easily and quickly.

The 874 Oven Sample Processor is used for automatic thermal sample preparation in Karl Fischer titration. The oven method is particularly suitable for samples that do not release their water until higher temperatures have been reached, for sparingly soluble samples or those that react with the KF reagent.

This instrument can be modified to match customer-specific sample vessels. For more information on Karl Fischer titrators and sample automation, click here.
