  • Voltage range ±20 V
  • Current range ± 120 mA
  • 3 source-measure channels
  • Basic accuracy 0.1 %
  • Volume of the electroanalytical cell 250 ml
  • Reference electrode SCE
  • Controlled by Python script (Graphical user interface in Windows 10)
  • Samples with diameter in range 12.5 mm to 16 mm
