This combination of a WaveNow Wireless Potentiostat with a WaveVortex 10 Rotator is one of the most convenient ways to get started using Rotating Disk Electrodes (RDE) in your research.  In addition to these two quality instruments, this bundle includes a glass electrochemical cell, a glassy carbon RDE, and a platinum counter electrode. Note that your choices for reference electrode and appropriate international power cords are made separately.

Customers typically select this bundle for the following reasons:

  • Affordable combination of a potentiostat with a rotating electrode
  • The convenience of wireless control of the potentiostat
  • Performing routine RDE experiments (Levich plots and catalyst screening)

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

This bundle includes potentiostat, software, cables, rotator, electrodes, and cells.

A reference electrode is not included with this bundle.  Please purchase a reference electrode separately!

The bundle does not include power cables. Please purchase two compatible power cables separately.  Pine Research offers a wide variety of standard international power cables.

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 bundle contains all the instrumentation you need to perform Rotating Disk Electrochemistry (RDE) right out of the box.  Both the potentiostat and rotator are compact and portable, and the potentiostat can be controlled via either a USB connection or a wireless connection from your computer.
Enjoy one of the best potentiostat software experiences while using high-quality and hand-crafted electrodes and cells.  We have taken the guesswork out of choosing a new RDE system by combining the most essential and popular items together in a bundle that can be purchased with one click.

The WaveNow Wireless and WaveVortex 10 bundle includes a selection of the most popular accessories for rotating disk voltammetry, including a five-neck and water-jacketed electrochemical cell, glassy carbon RDE tip, platinum counter electrode, and a gas-purged bearing assembly.  A special rotation rate control cable allows the potentiostat to directly control the rotation rate, 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 change.  Pine Research has you covered, and we offer many additional kinds of rotating electrode tips and accessories to allow you to expand your research.
