884 Professional VA

884 Professional VA
Order number: 2.884.0010

884 Professional VA is the universal entry-level instrument in the Professional VA/CVS instrument series. In conjunction with the compatible measuring head and compatible electrode set, you can perform trace analysis determinations, voltammetry with the Multi-Mode Electrode pro, or determinations of organic additives in electroplating baths, with "Cyclic Voltammetric Stripping" (CVS), "Cyclic Pulse Voltammetric Stripping" (CPVS), and chronopotentiometry (CP). The proven Metrohm electrode methods combined with a completely new design of potentiostat/galvanostat and the extremely high-performance viva software open up new perspectives. The potentiostat with a certified calibrator readjusts itself automatically before each measurement, thus guaranteeing maximum precision. The replaceable measuring head enables rapid changes between various applications with different electrodes.

The viva software is required for control, data acquisition, and evaluation.

The 884 Professional VA is supplied with reduced accessories, without measuring head and electrodes. Electrode set and viva license are to be ordered separately.
