pg581 150x150

The new PotentiostatGalvanostat model PG581 from Uniscan Instruments heralds the next chapter in the development of portable electrochemistry and corrosion instrumentation.

The instrument is a compact and powerful hand-held potentiostat – galvanostat with remarkable performance and is at home either in the laboratory or as a user configurable instrument for field use.

The design of the PG581 makes it ideally suited for the in field development of electrochemical sensor technologies, and as a cost effective portable electrochemical and corrosion analyzer.

The PG581 potentiostatgalvanostat is connected to a PC via its USB port in the laboratory for electrochemical experiments such as cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry and square wave voltammetry with unsurpassed ultra low noise performance. In addition you can now upload those same techniques directly to the PG581 to collect data in the field without a computer.

The PG581 also provides support for the routine electrochemical corrosion techniques such a LRP, Tafel and Potentiodynamic Polarisation in the laboratory or in the field.
