Each potentiostat of the OrigaStat range can be used as a Bipotentiostat. To do so, it is necessary to connect two OrigaStat devices. On one potentiostat, you connect a working electrode. On the other one, you connect the second working electrode, the counter-electrode, the reference electrode (if you work with three electrodes) and a second reference electrode (if you work with 4 electrodes).
THE AVAILABLE COMBINATIONS
1. OGS080 + OGS080
2. OGS080 + OGS100
3. OGS080 + OGS200
4. OGS100 + OGS100
5. OGS100 + OGS200
6. OGS200 + OGS200
The electrodes are connected as below, according to the needed configuration.
2 electrodes: Two working electrodes and one counter-electrode.
3 electrodes: Two working electrodes, one counter-electrode and one reference electrode (see the draw below).
4 electrodes: Two working electrodes, one counter-electrode and two reference electrodes.
At any case, connect the two GND connectors, with a Banana-Banana cable.
Example: two OrigaStat - OGS200. If the "front panel" of the OGS080 and the OGS100 can be different, the electrode connection principle remains the same.
Many options are available. Concretly, you can use one or two different computers. You need to open twice OrigaMaster. On one comuter, you can open two or more OrigaMaster sessions. The session 1 will monitor the Potentiostat n°1 and the session 2 will monitor the Potentiostat n°2.
