Key Specifications of the OctoStat

High Performance & High Stability  

Affordable high-spec and high stability electrochemical test system ideal for applications such as long-term battery/fuel cell testing, electrode development, biotechnology, and corrosion studies.

20M points/channel

 The integrated DataSecure feature ensures that all data is stored independently (with up to 20 million points per channel), safeguarding against communication loss or computer crashes and ensuring that measurement data is never lost.

19-Inch Rack-Mountable Housing

The OctoStat’s robust build is housed in a 19-inch rack-mountable casing, making it suitable for high-density setups, with up to 128 channels per rack, making it suitable for large-scale long time testing setups.

USB / Lan connectivity

 The uDataSecure module supports multiple PC connections via LAN (Ethernet), enhancing data accessibility and system integration.

Dedicated Embedded FRA/EIS

Unique to each channel is a dedicated Frequency Response Analyzer/Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (FRA/EIS) in each independent channel, not multiplexed. Capable of EIS during DC charge/discharge.

Automatic Current Range Selection: 100pA to 10A

including low current measurement possibility down to 100pA full-scale with femtoampere (fA) resolution or up to 10A per channel (or up to 128A in combination with OctoBoot)

Additional Power Requirements?

The OctoBoost16000 presents a flexible, high-current solution compatible with the OctoStat family. When combined with an OctoStat device, the 16A channels on the booster can be grouped to provide a variable maximum current up to 128A. 

This could be in various configurations, such as 

  • 8 x ±16A, 
  • 4 x ±32A, or 3 x ±32A + 1 x±16A, or...
  • 2 x ±64A, or 1 x ±64A and 4 x ±16A, or 1 x ±64A and 2 x ±32A, or...
  • 1 x 128A 

This flexibility makes OctoBoost an essential addition for high-current battery testing applications.
