Reference electrode is not included with the WaveNowXV 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.

The WaveNowXV 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 WaveNowXV 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 WaveNowXV 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 WaveNowXV Potentiostat with RDE Bundle.
