Sensit BT

Handheld and wireless dual-channel potentiostat

  • Capable of EIS up to 200kHz
  • Potential range -1.7 to +2 V
  • Current ranges 100 nA – 5 mA (max ±3 mA)
 
 

Description:

The Sensit BT is perfect for electrochemical sensor applications. The sensit BT connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet. From there you can control it is using the Android app PStouch. You can use the USB-C port to charge the sensit BT or connect it to a normal USB port on your PC. From there you can control it using the PStrace software .

Dual-Channel and Bipotentiostat:

The Sensit BT.SPE can be used for running sequential measurements on two different Screen-Printed electrodes (SPE’s) with their own Rerference, Counter and Working electrodes.

The second channel can be used in Bipotentiostat mode, which would be functioning as the second Working electrode versus the reference and the counter electrode channel 1. Both the channels will be recorded at the same time in the Bipoentiostat mode.

The Sensit BT.SNS has a lead connected to the WE of channel 2 and this can be used out of the box for BiPoentiostat measurements.

Specifications:

The Sensit BT works at three different modes;

  • Low Speed mode: for scan rates up to 1 V/s or a bandwidth of 100 Hz.
  • High Speed mode: for high scan rates and frequencies.
  • Max Range mode: a combination of the Low and High Speed modes for optimal dynamic dc-potential range.
