Reference 600+

The Reference 600+ is being discontinued and replaced with the Reference 620.


The Reference 600+ TM is a high performance electrochemical test system. It is suitable for the study of physical electrochemistry, sensors, coatings and corrosion.


The Reference 600+ is a high performance and research grade electrochemical test system with fast scanning and low current for applications in physical electrochemistry (microelectrodes), fast cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical corrosion, electrochemical noise measurement, paint and coating layers, and sensors.

The Reference 600+ has various auxiliary inputs and outputs for auxiliary control functions, such as: control of rotating disk electrode equipment. Temperature control is also possible through a thermocouple interface.

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy

The Reference 600+ enables accurate measurements of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The accurate spectrum of the measured impedance spectrum is shown below, and the measurement error of the actual system can be determined. Spectra were produced by including actual measurements of real wires.
