Ivium Current and Potential Boosters



The IviumBoost instruments are a series of power boosters which have been designed to increase the potential and/or current of the IviumStat or the IviumStat.XR.


The booster is connected in front of the IviumStat in-line with the cell cable. In order to operate an IviumBoost, an IviumStat is needed. The output capacity of the IviumBoost makes it particularly useful for applications that require high power but precision control, such as: Batteries, Fuel Cells, Membrane-Electrode-Assemblies, Electrolysis, Corrosion , Deposition, etc.


All electrochemical techniques are applicable across the full potential range and, unlike a simple load, the IviumBoost shows no singularities at 0 V. With a sample rate of 100,000 pnts/sec and a risetime of less than 50’s, the IviumBoost can meet even the fastest requirements.


Available in the IviumBoost series:


As the IviumBoost is a separate external instrument, it can be purchased at the initial order of your Ivium potentiostat or at a later date, allowing enhancement of your Ivium potentiostat at any point in your research.



CompactStat.h Power Booster

The New 24-bit CompactStat.h can have an optional power booster integrated into the housing in order to increase the power. As with the IviumBoost, this can be added upon initial order or at a future date to enhance performance at any point in your research.


The following options are available:

  • CompactStat.h10800 – ±10V / ±800mA
  • CompactStat.h20250 – ±20V / ±250mA
  • CompactStat.h10030 – ±100V / ±30mA


The integration of a power booster into the CompactStat.h will greatly increase the application possibilities. When available, an automatic selection will choose whether the power booster is activated or not:

– when powered from USB the power booster is not activated;
– when powered from adapter the power booster is automatically activated.

This flexibility preserves the portable nature of the CompactStat.h.


NOTE that the h10800, h20250 and h10030 power boosters are only available for the CompactStat.h. If you own an older CompactStat, you can order a Plus-module to increase the power.
