MUX8 Multiplexer Module
Extension module for the EmStat3 with 8 channels
The MUX8 multiplexer is meant for use with 2- or 3- electrode sensors or cells up to 8 channels. The MUX8 module allows to switch:
- 8x WE, 8x RE, 8x CE
- 8x WE, 8x RE+CE joint together
- 8x WE with fixed RE and CE
The MUX8 can be mounted directly to the EmStat3 potentiostat module as shown below. Or it can be connected via short wires or flatcable.
The MUX8 module can be mounted directly on the EmStat Development board. Connections to different cells can be made using the screw terminals on the development board.
The available libraries for software development are also made compatible with the MUX8 module.
It is not possible to apply a potential simultaneously to more than one sensor or cell each with three electrodes. This requires a multipotentiostat, one potentiostat for each channel. This is however possible with two electrode sensors or cells, so when combined counter and reference electrodes are applied.
|PSTrace – PC software for all single channel instruments PSTrace software is shipped as standard with all single channel and multiplexed instruments. The software provides support for all techniques and device functionalities.||Software||17-03-22|
|OCP with MUX8-R2 The multiplexer MUX8-R2 offers the possibility to record reliable Open Circuit Potential (OCP) measurements in the Alternating mode, which allows to monitor the OCP of multiple samples / working electrodes over time with a single potentiostat. This is a significant improvement compared to its predecessors MUX8 and MUX16. In this application note it is demonstrated how to setup and perform an OCP measurement with the MUX8-R2 in the Alternating mode.||Application Note||04-05-21|
