The best way to work with a Pine Research Rotating Ring-Disk Electrode (RRDE) system is to pair it with a Pine Research electrochemical workstation.  This bundle gets you started with an E8 Series High-Efficiency RRDE tip, a WaveDriver® series bipotentiostat-galvanostat, and a WaveVortex® electrode rotator. The High-Efficiency RRDE tip features a fixed platinum ring, a fixed glassy carbon disk, and the highest collection efficiency (43.9%) of any RRDE tip available on the market

Every purchase of a Pine Research potentiostat and rotating electrode bundle includes a free one-hour online training session! Contact Pine Research now (click here) to learn more and to schedule your training session.

Under the control of our powerful AfterMath® software package, the WaveDriver 40 is capable of performing a wide range of DC electroanalytical techniques including hydrodynamic voltammetry.  This instrument is a true integrated bipotentiostat with a convenient cell cable that allows quick and easy connection to a rotating disk electrode (RDE) or rotating ring-disk electrode (RRDE). The compact WaveVortex 10 electrode rotator lets you get started immediately with hydrodynamic experiments.  This RRDE start-up bundle includes the following principal items along with compatible cables and accessories:

  • WaveDriver 40 DC Bipotentiostat/Galvanostat
  • WaveVortex 10 Electrode Rotator
  • High-Efficiency RRDE tip (glassy carbon disk, Pt ring, 43.9% collection efficiency)
  • Pine Research AfterMath Software
  • Jacketed RDE Cell (glass) with Pt Counter and Ag/AgCl Reference Electrode

This bundle includes an E8 Series High-Efficiency RRDE tip with a fixed platinum ring and a fixed glassy carbon disk. As your research needs change, you can expand your rotating electrode collection to include a wide variety of additional RDE and RRDE tip designs that are compatible with the WaveVortex 10 rotator.

The WaveDriver 40 DC Bipotentiostat/Galvanostat is an affordable benchtop bipotentiostat/galvanostat system capable of performing a wide variety of single and dual working electrode DC electroanalytical techniques. Unlike many other bipotentiostat offerings on the market, the fundamental design of the WaveDriver 40 makes it just as easy for you to use two working electrodes in an electrochemical cell as it is to use just one working electrode.

True Integrated Bipotentiostat. From the software to the cell cable design, everything about the WaveDriver 40 bipotentiostat makes working with dual working electrode configurations as straightforward as possible: no messy inter-channel connections are required, and no additional cell cables or adapters are required. The WaveDriver 40 connects to your laptop or PC via a standard USB cable and is controlled by our powerful AfterMath software. The software user interface is designed with two working electrodes in mind, so entering experimental parameters for dual-electrode techniques is quick-and-easy.

If you also need to perform Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), please choose one of our WaveDriver 200 bundles instead.

Applications. The WaveDriver 40 finds use in academic and industrial research laboratories around the world and across a wide variety of applications. The instrument offers a large range of accessible current ranges (±100 nA up to ±1 A) and potential ranges (±2.5V up to ±15 V) along with advanced filtering and iR compensation. Back panel connections allow rotation rate control when performing voltammetry using a Rotating Disk Electrode (RDE), Rotating Ring-Disk Electrode (RRDE), or Rotating Cylinder Electrode (RCE). Additional input/output and timing connections permit the WaveDriver to control third-party instrumentation in applications such as UV/Visible Spectroelectrochemistry.

Cost Effective. Take a look around at similar bipotentiostat/galvanostat systems and you will have a difficult time finding one with comparable specifications and capabilities at the same modest price point. Designed with the everyday user in mind, the specifications for the WaveDriver 40 bipotentiostat are broad enough to permit you to perform a wide range of routine electrochemical techniques but also prudently chosen to allow for a simple and affordable design. Popular and common techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, bulk electrolysis, differential pulse voltammetry, square wave and pulse voltammetry, battery charge/discharge sequences, corrosion techniques (such as linear polarization resistance), chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry are easily configured and executed using our AfterMath software package.

What makes the WaveDriver 40 bipotentiostat even more powerful?
Combining it with a precision electrode rotator manufactured by Pine Research…

MAXIMUM ROTATION RATE: Each electrode tip model used with the WaveVortex 10 rotator has a maximum rotation rate. Do not the exceed maximum rotation rate when working with rotating electrodes.

The WaveVortex 10 Electrode Rotator is designed to suit the needs of those looking to perform rotating disk (RDE) and rotating ring-disk (RRDE) electrode experiments with limited lab space.  This small footprint rotator is compatible with all 15 mm OD RDE/RRDE electrodes manufactured by Pine Research, along with many of our cells, glassware, and accessories.

The control box, motor, shaft, and enclosure are all fixed into one convenient unit, making the WaveVortex compact and portable.  The rotation rate can be manually adjusted on the front panel and monitored on the digital display.  Alternately, a potentiostat can control the rotation rate using an appropriate rate control cable.

Electrode connections are made to the rotating shaft using silver-carbon brushes.  There are two contacts – the red is for the disk, and the blue is for the ring.
