Sensit BT for OEM
Tailored for your application
- Capable of EIS up to 200 kHz
- Battery & Bluetooth integrated
- Customization (e.g. logo and color) possible, even for small series
- Easy app building using our tools and examples
- Can be used without PC or smartphone connection
The Sensit BT is ideal for electrochemical sensor applications. The Sensit BT is designed for use with screen-printed electrodes and is available in a re-branded housing for OEM purposes. The Sensit Smart is built around the proven and calibrated EmStat Pico module, which is a joint development by Analog Devices and PalmSens.
The Sensit BT connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet and controlled via the Android app PStouch. You can use the USB-C port to charge the Sensit BT or connect to a classic USB port on your PC and control the Sensit BT via our PC software PSTrace.
The Sensit BT supports most common electrochemical techniques, including Cyclic Voltammetry, Square Wave Voltammetry and Impedance Spectroscopy (FRA/EIS).

|Electrode connections||RE, WE, CE / Custom||Connectors||2 mm banana|
|Allowed sensor thickness||Between 0.1 mm and 0.8 mm||Electrode connections||RE, WE, WE2, CE|
|Maximum sensor width||11 mm|
Dual-channel and Bipotentiostat
The Sensit BT.SPE can be used for running sequential measurements on two different Screen-Printed Electrodes (SPE’s) each with their own Reference, Counter and Working electrodes.
The second channel can also be used in Bipotentiostat mode, functioning as second Working Electrode versus the Reference and Counter electrode of channel 1. Both working electrodes are recorded simultaneously in the Bipotentiostat mode.
The Sensit BT.SNS has a lead connected to the WE of channel 2 and can be used out-of-the-box for BiPotentiostat measurements.
On-board data storage
The Sensit BT is equipped with 500 MB internal storage memory.
Save measurements on-board as a backup. Or pre-program the device with a script and use the trigger button to run and store measurements: no need to connect a PC or smartphone. Browse and transfer all internally stored measurements back to the PC easily using PSTrace for Windows.
- Dual-Channel potentiostat with bipotentiostat mode
- FRA / EIS up to 200 kHz

Develop software for PC and smartphone
Whether you want to write a simple or advanced Windows application, develop an Android or iPhone app you can do it with our software development tools and code examples.
Software Development Kits for .NET
The PalmSens Software Development Kits (SDKs) for .NET can be used with any of our instruments or OEM potentiostat modules to develop your own software. The SDK’s come with a set of examples that shows how to use the libraries.
PalmSens SDKs with examples are available for the following .NET Frameworks:
- Xamarin (for Android)
MethodSCRIPT™ communications protocol
The Sensit Series have an on-board parser for the MethodSCRIPT™ scripting language. This language allows developers to program a human-readable script for the Sensit Series on any platform or operating system. The simple script language allows for running electrochemical techniques supported by the Sensit Series and makes it easy to combine different measurements and other tasks.

|EmStat Pico communication protocol v1.3 This document describes the “online” communication protocol of the EmStat Pico. Initial communication with an EmStat Pico is always done using this online communication. Measurements and other scripts can be started by sending a MethodSCRIPT,||13-06-22|
|MethodSCRIPT communication protocol v1.3 The MethodSCRIPT scripting language is designed to improve the flexibility of the PalmSens potentiostat and galvanostat devices for OEM users. It allows users to start measurements with arguments that are similar to the arguments in PSTrace. PalmSens provides libraries and examples for handling low level communication and generating scripts for MethodSCRIPT devices such as the EmStat Pico and EmStat4.||19-01-22|
