The WaveDriver 40 is a benchtop USB Bipotentiostat/Galvanostat System capable of performing a wide range of electroanalytical techniques. The WaveDriver is a cost-effective, powerful, and versatile benchtop instrument capable of performing a wide range of electroanalytical techniques.  With a modest form factor and convenient USB interface, the WaveDriver 40 packs a punch with iR compensation, ability to form over 38 different electrochemical techniques, and controlled through AfterMathTM Data Organizer software.  The WaveDriver 40 is a true bipotentiostat, which means two working electrode channels to a common counter and reference electrode, ideal for experiments such as rotating ring-disk analysis.  Key features of the WaveDriver 40 are as follows:

  • True bipotentiostat:  Two working electrode channels to a common counter and reference electrode
  • Applied/Measured Current:  ±100 nA to ±1 A
  • Applied/Measured Voltage: ±15 V (three ranges, ±2.5 V, ±10 V, and ±15 V)
  • Operation Modes:  Potentiostat, Galvanostat, OCP, ZRA
  • iR Compensation: Current Interrupt or Positive Feedback
  • Techniques:  All common DC sweep and step experiments plus specialty corrosion, rotating, and spectroelectrochemistry techniques

See "Description" tab below for additional information.

The WaveDriver 40 DC Bipotentiostat/Galvanostat is available in several product bundles, including bundles for RDE and RRDE experiments.

The WaveDriver® 40 is a cost-effective, yet powerful and versatile, benchtop instrument capable of performing a wide range of electroanalytical techniques. With a modest form factor and convenient USB interface, the WaveDriver 40 packs a punch with iR compensation, ability to perform over 38 different electrochemical techniques, and controlled through our AfterMathTM Data Organizer software.  The WaveDriver 40 is a true bipotentiostat, which means two working electrode channels to a common counter and reference electrode, ideal for experiments such as rotating ring-disk analysis. The WaveDriver boasts an impressive current range from ±100 nA up to ±1 A, advanced input, output, and waveform filters, and  iR compensation.  The WaveDriver 40 connects to your laptop or PC via a standard USB cable and is controlled by our powerful AfterMathTM Data Organizer software application.  Rear panel connections allow rotation rate control when using rotating disk, cylinder, or ring-disk electrodes.  Additional connections for analog input/output and synchronized timing permit the WaveDriver to be used in conjunction with other instruments.

Affordable.  Take a look around at similar bipotentiostat/galvanostat systems and you will have a difficult time finding one with comparable specs and capabilities at the same modest price point.  Pine Research strives to bring you cost-effective electrochemical instrumentation.  The WaveDriver 40 also includes a dummy cell for checking calibration and instrument function.

Versatile.  The WaveDriver 40 is an all-around performer which finds use in academic and industrial research laboratories around the world.  Unlike many of its peers, the WaveDriver 40 was built to perform a little bit of everything and without added cost of different software “upgrades.”

Capable.  Designed with the everyday user in mind, the specifications for the WaveDriver 40 bipotentiostat is 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-based analysis such as linear polarization resistance, chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry are easily configured and executed using our AfterMath software package.
