The WaveNow Potentiostat and Rotating Disk Electrode (RDE) bundle is a great choice to begin experiments with rotating disk electrochemistry.  The RDE bundle includes everything you need to start performing rotating electrode experiments, right out of the box.  We ensure that all components in this bundle are share compatibility.  The selected parts reflect the most typical startup package.  Customers typically select the WaveNow RDE bundle for the following reasons:

  • A cost-effective potentiostat for research is needed
  • Routine rotating electrode experiments, such as Levich Series, are commonly performed
  • The bundle integrates the rotator and potentiostat with pre-selected components, which minimizes setup time

See "Description" tab below for additional precautions and information.

The WaveNow Potentiostat RDE Bundle includes potentiostat, software, cables, rotator, electrodes, and cells.

Reference electrode is not included with the WaveNow Potentiostat and RDE Bundle.  Please purchase a reference electrode separately!

The MSR Rotator requires a power cable.  Specify the appropriate power cord style during order.  Pine Research offers a wide variety of plug styles.

MAXIMUM ROTATION RATE: 3000 RPM — Never exceed maximum rotation rate when working with rotating electrodes.

TEMPERATURE RANGE: 10°C – 80°C — Electrode damage may occur at temperatures beyond recommended range.

CHEMICAL INCOMPATIBILITIES: Concentrated Strong Acids — Damage or discoloration may occur.

Polishing PEEK-shrouded electrodes is best accomplished using a mechanical polisher.  Other shroud materials are available upon request.

This series of RDE tips may be used with the MSR and ASR Rotators.

The WaveNow Potentiostat and RDE Bundle contains all the products you need to perform Rotating Disk Electrochemistry (RDE) right out of the box.  Enjoy the world’s most popular electrode rotator, one of the best potentiostat software experiences, and all high-quality and hand-crafted products like electrodes and cells.  We have taken the guesswork out of a new RDE system, combining only the most essential and popular items with one click.

The WaveNow Potentiostat and RDE Bundle includes a selection of the most popular tools for rotating electrochemistry, including a five-neck and water-jacketed electrochemical cell, platinum RDE tip and shaft, platinum counter electrode, gas-purge bearing assembly, and of course the WaveNow potentiostat.  The potentiostat connects directly to the MSR Rotator control unit with the included AKCABLE4, thereby making software automation of rotation rate as easy as the click of a button!

This bundle is a good choice for an initial laboratory setup.  As your research evolves, it is likely your specific needs will arise.  Pine Research has you covered and we sell many additional electrodes and accessories that can expand the use and diversity of the WaveNow Potentiostat with RDE Bundle.
