Ivium OctoStat


This summer Ivium are launching a new series of products called the OctoStat. The first product in the series is the OctoStat200 (8-channels, +/-10V at up to 200mA); you can contact us now for further information, a quotation, and purchase enquiries.


Later this year, the OctoStat5000 (8-channels, +/-10V at up to 5A) will be launched.


As the name suggests, each OctoStat contains 8 potentiostat channels. The new system is primarily aimed at the battery / cell cycler and corrosion markets, which are both application areas where a high number of channels committed to long duration tests can be a requirement. However, the OctoStat will also be ideally suited for those looking for a number of independent potentiostats with FRA / EIS capabilities in one laboratory.


Each channel: 

  • Dedicated embedded FRA / EIS
  • 20M datapoints stored locally
  • Once the method has been started the channel will operate fully independently of a PC
  • New dedicated software for Battery and Corrosion testing


OctoStat’s can be stacked to form higher channel count systems allowing for high channel count battery / cell cycling with dedicated impedance on each channel. This will allow for immediate impedance sweeps once cell cycling has reached the desired number of cycles without having to wait for a multiplexed impedance device.


System features OctoStat200:

  • Channel current / potential: 200mA / +/-10V
  • FRA / EIS: 10uHz to 100kHz
  • Analogue I/O: 16 bit analogue I/O on each channel
  • Chassis height: 1U
  • Interface: USB / Ethernet / WiFi

System performance OctoStat200:

  • Applied potential: -10V to +10V (333uV resolution)
  • Measured potential: 16 bits, minimum 0.4uV
  • Current ranges: 10nA to 100mA
  • Measured current: 16 bits, minimum 1pA
