Model 1200A Series Hand-held

Potentiostat / Bipotentiostat    >Home

 

The Model 1200A series is a computerized hand-held potentiostat/bipotentiostat. The instrument consists of a digital function generator, a data acquisition system, and a potentiostat/bipotentiostat. The potential range is 2.4 V. The current range is 2 mA. This series is capable of measuring current down to 100 pA. The steady state current of a 10 mm disk electrode can be readily measured. The size of the instrument is 7 (L) 4.5 (W) 1 (H). The instrument is powered by the USB port of a PC computer, without need of an external wall transformer or batteries. It is therefore more compact and convenient. The instrument can be used for electroanalysis and sensor studies. Due to its small size, light weight, and low cost, it is particularly useful for field applications and teaching laboratories.

                Compared with the previous Model 1200 series, the new design allow 7.5 V compliance voltage, which ensures the working potential range 2.4 V for most of the electrochemical systems. It also uses dual 16-bit DAC and 16-bit ADC for improved resolution and accuracy.

                The instrument provides many powerful functions, such as file handling, experimental control, graphics, data analysis, and digital simulation. Some of the unique features include macro command, working electrode conditioning, color, legend and font selection, data interpolation, visual baseline correction, data point removal, visual data point modification, signal averaging, Fourier spectrum, and equations relating to electrochemical techniques.

The CHI1200A series provides various instrument models to meet different applications and budget., and is available in potentiostat (CHI1200A, 1210A, 1220A, and 1230A) and bipotentiostat versions (CHI1202A, 1212A, 1222A, and 1232A).
