1WaveDriver Bipotentiostat Cell Cable

The WaveDriver Bipotentiostat Cell Cable (Pine Research part number ACP3E01) WaveDriver Bipotentiostat Cell Cable is used with the WaveDriver 200 WaveDriver 200 EIS Bipotentiostat/Galvanostat and WaveDriver 40 WaveDriver 40 DC Bipotentiostat/Galvanostat models.
Using this cell cable, connections can be made to simple two-terminal cells (such as batteries, fuel cells, solar cells, amperometry sensors, capacitors, resistors, and inductors), traditional three-electrode voltammetry cells (including those which contain a rotating disk electrode or a rotating cylinder electrode), compact voltammetry cells, and to more complex dual working electrode cells (including rotating ring-disk electrode cells).

1.1Color Description

The WaveDriver Bipotentiostat Cell Cable breaks out the instrument cell port connections to six shielded coaxial lines and one unshielded line (the GRAY instrument chassis line).  The shielded coaxial lines terminate in banana plugs that are designed to be stacked as needed and directly connected to electrodes.  Alligator clips that slide onto the banana plugs are included.  A tabular summary of the color code for these lines is provided (see Table 1).
Color Description ID Type
WHITE Reference Electrode REF Sense
GREEN Counter Electrode CTR Drive
GRAY Instrument Chassis Ground
RED Primary Working Electrode (K1) WK1 Drive
ORANGE Primary Working Electrode (K1) Sense
BLUE Secondary Working Electrode (K2) WK2 Drive
VIOLET Secondary Working Electrode (K2) Sense

1.2Cable Pinout

NOTE: The high input impedance SENSE lines carry only very small currents during normal operation.  Each of these SENSE lines is terminated with a resistor embedded within the banana plug at the end of the cable.
