The WaveNow Wireless® is a portable instrument designed to connect to a personal computer (either via a wireless USB dongle or directly using a USB cable) and is controlled by Pine Research AfterMathTM software. The WaveNow Wireless potentiostat/galvanostat system is capable of controlling an electrochemical cell comprised of one working electrode, a reference electrode, and a counter electrode. Popular DC electrochemical test methods (such as Cyclic Voltammetry, Chronoamperometry, Pulse, and Square Wave Voltammetry, etc.) may be performed using the WaveNow Wireless. iR compensation is also possible, and can be measured via the positive feedback technique. Additionally, because the WaveNow Wireless can be connected and controlled wirelessly without the need of a physical cable connection, it is ideal for use in confined and/or remote experimental setups where the instrument/electrochemical system and controlling computer cannot or need not be physically connected or in close proximity (e.g., gloveboxes). Key features of the WaveNow Wireless are as follows:
- Practical Current Range: ±1 pA to ±150 mA
- Applied/Measured Voltage: ±8 V
- Operation Modes: Potentiostat, Galvanostat, OCP, ZRA
- Techniques: All common DC sweep and step experiments plus specialty corrosion, rotating, and spectroelectrochemistry techniques

The WaveNow® Wireless Potentiostat/Galvanostat is a modern evolution of one of our best selling potentiostats, the WaveNow®. How do you make something great even better? Reduce the wire clutter! Customers have enjoyed the small, compact yet powerful WaveNow system for performing electrochemistry in many ways: educational electrochemistry, research electrochemistry, and field-based electrochemistry. Due to its small size and easy USB-interface, the WaveNow finds practical use in many applications. Now, the engineering team at Pine Research stepped it up a level, making the WaveNow Wireless capable of communicating data via a wireless connection. Imagine setting up your glovebox with an electrochemical setup, and not having to worry about binding posts, or other challenging, possibly noisy, and likely expensive cable feedthroughs. Your imagination is now reality, with the WaveNow Wireless. It is a full featured DC potentiostat, with iR compensation, overload LED indicator, wireless communicator dongle, and advanced current ranges as compared to the traditional WaveNow. A license for AfterMath® instrument control and data analysis software is included with every system and unlike others, we do not restrict the installation of the software or charge for potentiostat control functionality. You get software access to everything the WaveNow Wireless can do, included with initial purchase!
The WaveNow series was first launched in 2007 and has been a top-selling system for Pine Research, primarily in educational- and research-based laboratories around the world. In 2020, the engineering team at Pine Research updated the very successful WaveNow, resulting in the WaveNow Wireless, in the following ways:
- Added iR Compensation. Now perform positive feedback iR compensation – something the WaveNow series never used to offer.
- Added “Overload” Light. Users have asked for an LED to indicate when the potentiostat has overloaded, i.e., surpassed current and/or voltage range, so there is a quick visual clue that the setup may have to be adjusted for better results.
- Added wireless communication. Wireless communication, between the WaveNow Wireless Potentiostat and a computer installed with the USB dongle receiver, makes many applications easier, namely working in a tight, enclosed, and/or airtight space (e.g., a glovebox). Communication is now possible without depending on a USB feedthrough, an expensive and sometimes challenging addition to a glovebox.
- Improved lower and higher current resolution. The original WaveNow has an applied/measured current range of ±100 nA to ± 100 mA. Now, we’ve improved both low current and high current resolution by offering an applied/measured current range of ±5 nA to ±150 mA.
- Changed potentiostat housing. The original WaveNow features a slick enclosure, but forces its use in one plane. Now, the (slightly larger) housing for the WaveNow Wireless allows use in the vertical and horizontal orientations for easier accommodation in tight spaces.
Includes AfterMath Data Organizer Software
- Instrument Control. When started, AfterMath automatically detects all compatible instrumentation attached to the computer and provides complete control over each instrument. AfterMath can simultaneously and independently control multiple instruments, and multiple experiments may be queued on each individual instrument. Even as new experiments are queued or running in the background, data acquired in previous experiments may be manipulated by the user.
- Flexible Plotting. AfterMath has a powerful “drag-n-drop” feature that allows traces from one plot to be quickly and easily copied and moved to other plots. Preparing an overlay plot from several voltammograms is straightforward. AfterMath provides precise control over line sizes, point markers, colors, axis limits, axis labels, and tick marks. One or more text boxes may be placed anywhere on a plot, and the text may be formatted with any combination of fonts, font sizes, or colors as desired.
- Scientific Units. Unlike graphing software designed for business and marketing applications, AfterMath is designed with scientific data in mind. Proper management of scientific units, metric prefixes, scientific notation, and significant figures are built into Aftermath. For example, if an operation divides a potential measured in millivolts by a current measured in nanoamperes, then Aftermath properly provides the result as a resistance measured in megaohms.
- Data Archiving. A unique and open XML-based file format allows data from several related experiments to be stored together in one single archive file. Keeping related experiments together in an archive file eliminates the need to manage multiple individual data files on the hard drive. The internal archive hierarchy can contain as many subfolders, reports, plots, notes, experimental parameters, and data sets as desired (subject to available memory and storage).
- Tools and Transforms. Flexible tools can be placed on any graph to precisely measure quantities such as peak height and peak area. Multiple tools can be placed on a plot, and all such tools remain exactly where they are placed, even if the data archive is saved to a disk and reloaded at a later time. Fundamental mathematical operations (addition, multiplication, integration, logarithm, etc.) can be applied to any trace on any plot.
