This bundle includes an E5 series RDE tip with a fixed glassy carbon disk permanently mounted in a PTFE shroud. As your research grows, you can expand your rotating electrode collection to include a wide variety of additional RDE tip designs that are compatible with the Pine Research MSR Rotator.

This bundle contains all the equipment you need to get started performing Rotating Disk Electrode (RDE) voltammetry right out of the box.  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 an affordable bundle that can be purchased with one click.

This bundle includes a selection of the most popular accessories for rotating disk voltammetry, including a five-neck and water-jacketed electrochemical cell, a glassy carbon RDE (the working electrode), a platinum counter electrode, and a silver/silver-chloride reference electrode.

A special rotation rate control cable allows the WaveNowxv Potentiostat to directly control the rotation rate, so that you can set up all of your experimental parameters, including the rotation rate, using our powerful AfterMath instrument control and data analysis software.

Portable. Only 30 mm thick and less than 175 mm long and weighing less than 300 grams, this potentiostat is the ultimate portable instrument–small enough to fit into your laptop’s tote bag, your carry-on luggage, or your coat pocket. You can take your potentiostat to your work area rather than having to move your work area to your potentiostat. An optional battery pack lets you take your potentiostat into the field when needed.

Capable. Designed with the everyday user in mind, the specifications for the potentiostat 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. In addition to several rotating disk electrode methods, the software supports common DC electroanalytical techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, bulk electrolysis, differential pulse voltammetry, square-wave and normal pulse voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry.

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 Pine Research MSR Rotator is the most popular rotating electrode configuration worldwide. This flexible electrochemical instrument may be used with Rotating Disk Electrodes (RDE), Rotating Ring-Disk Electrodes (RRDE), and Rotating Cylinder Electrodes (RCE). The MSR Rotator bears both the CE and ETL marks and is compatible with most international power configuration standards.

The rotation rate of the electrode may be adjusted using a control knob on the front panel of the motor control unit, or alternately, the rotation rate can be controlled via an analog control signal provided by a potentiostat or by a third-party waveform generator. The rotation rate may be viewed using the LCD display on the front panel. The rotation rate is adjustable over a range from 50 to 10,000 RPM and is accurate to within 1% of the reading on the display. A rotation rate may also be monitored via an output signal proportional to the rotation rate which is available on the front panel.

The rotation rate may be controlled and modulated by a sine wave, square wave, or other externally generated waveform. The outstanding acceleration characteristics of the motor and its control circuitry allow the rotation rate to follow the control waveform with very little error. This feature is particularly desirable for techniques such as Hydrodynamic Modulation Voltammetry (HMV).

The rotator motor position is easily raised or lowered with respect to the cell platform, making immersion or removal of the rotating electrode tip quick and easy. The enclosure base is made from chemically resistant polypropylene, and the large enclosure window provides a good view of rotating electrode during operation. (A smaller base is available separately for using the rotator in a glove box or fume hood.)

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 the capabilities of your Pine Research MSR Rotator. This rotator can also be used with Rotating Ring-Disk Electrodes (RRDE). If you are contemplating future RRDE research work, keep in mind that working with an RRDE requires a bipotentiostat, and we suggest that you consider our WaveDriver 40 DC Bipotentiostat or our WaveDriver 200 EIS Bipotentiostat to control such RRDE experiments.
