BiStat 3200
High quality, digital scanning bipotentiostat system for demanding
research applications with true 2-channel measurement capability.
Its small footprint allows it to be used in a variety of applications and environments where
space is at a premium.
The BiStat 3200 provides the features found in a traditional laboratory based instrument,
in a dual design. The BiStat 3200 can operate as two independent isolated instruments or
as a bipotentiostat/bigalvanostat.
A five working electrode screened multi electrode cable is available for the BiStat 3200.
This allows up to five working electrode connections to be addressed sequentially.
The instrument may be operated from its front panel using the dual keypads and
LCD displays or connected to a Windows™ based computer via the supplied USB cable.
When connected to a personal computer the instrument is supported by the UiEChem™
and UiECorr™ software for electrochemistry and corrosion research applications.
An Activex® control is available for users who wish to interface the BiStat 3200 with
bespoke software applications and development environments such as LabView™.
The BiStat 3200 is a high quality, digital scanning bipotentiostat system
for demanding research applications.
True 2-channel measurement capability:
- independent control of applied potential
or current on both channels,
- independent control of current ranges
on both channels,
- independent control of experimental technique
and parameters on both channels
Single USB connection to PC

UiEChem™/UiECorr™ package software
Monitoring software dedicated to bipotentiostat applications.
The UiEChem™/UiECorr ™ software supplied with the BiStat 3200, is a
comprehensive and fully featured package which encompasses a wide selection
of standard electrochemical techniques. All this is combined with an easy-to-use
graphics interface. After a technique has been selected a waveform diagram is
displayed showing the structure of the experiment. At the same time the user
can enter in the experimental parameters, set the sampling rate, number of
cycles and current autoranging. The software automatically configures itself
to the number of potentiostat channels installed in the BiStat 3200 unit.
The UiEChem™/UiECorr ™ software provides a flexible, intuitive interface for
running multiple experiments in a user-defined sequence. Once the sequence
is started the experiments are run automatically, one-at-a-time, in the order
in which they appear in the sequence. The user can choose the experimental
technique to include in a sequence and choose what the configuration for
each experiment should be. The data is acquired automatically during the
sequence and saved to disk. In addition, the user can specify that the sequence
waits for a set amount of time between experiments by inserting a delay and
include loops so that a group of one more experiments is repeated a set
number of times. The sequencing supports also advanced functionality such
as analogue triggering. The sequencing facilities may also be used in your
own programming language via the optional Activex® control.

A standard graphics display is provided for each technique and we have added
the ability for the user to define their preferred format for each technique from
a simple template. The UiEChem™ software features a peak analysis routine
which is easy to use and utilises sophisticated routines and algorithms to provide
a comprehensive data analysis package. The routines are accessible from the
main software package and do not require the data to be exported. The routine
can treat data from single cycle, multi-cycle and multi-channel experiments.
Advanced waveform generation
The BiStat 3200 modules are capable of generating complex and repetitive
waveforms with precision timing. The instrument has a sequenced waveform
generator which generates waveforms based on a sequence of steps. Each step
may comprise a waveform which includes pulses, linear sweeps and arbitrary
waves. The waveform generator has a timing resolution of 125 microseconds and
will seamlessly sequence from one step to the next.
Analogue triggering capability
The BiStat 3200 modules have a real time analogue triggering facility.
The triggering can be configured to execute on high or low thresholds of current,
potential or auxiliary voltage. The triggering provides sub millisecond timing
accuracy and can offer both pre and post trigger data as required.
The RC10V control can provide remote software control of the electrode speed
and rotation direction with a variety of rotator models. The rotator speed can be
set directly in software using the Rotator Velocity experiment included with the
controller. Alternate steps in the sequence set the rotational velocity and perform
voltammetric experiments. The sequence is completed with the Levich analysis
experiment step. This extracts data from the voltammograms and plots the linear
regression response. The diffusion coefficient is then calculated from
the response.
