Product description

Dedicated application

The OctoStat is designed for applications where multiple cells are operated in parallel for long periods of time, such as battery/fuel cell-testing, electrode development, biotechnology and corrosion.

Complete solution

The OctoStat offers a complete package. The hardware includes a built-in dedicated Frequency Response Analyser for each channel, low current measurement possibility down to 10nA full-scale with pA resolution, and an analog measurement channel for secondary signals such as temperature. All measurement and dataprocessing software is included.


The compliance (maximum current or potential) of the instrument can be defined by the operator. Thus valuable samples may be protected, and unsafe situations prevented.

Data security & Connection

The OctoStat is equipped with an integrated DataSecure module:

  • Data is stored on board independent of the computer.
  • Connection of multiple PCs is possible.


  • Automatic current range selection: 10nA to 100mA/10A
  • Automatic variable noise filter and potentiostat/galvanostat stability settings
  • Simultaneous acquisition of current/potential and peripheral analog signal
  • Real time data display up to 500 pnts/s
  • Minimum interval time/resolution: 10µs
  • Result optimalisation by automated tuned filters, gain amplifiers and DC-subtraction


The OctoStat is controlled via Ivium’s own software. This versatile, yet intuitive software, allows instrument control, data management and analysis, etc. The OctoStat can also be controlled from LabVIEWTM, C++, Delphi, etc. A full suite of software is included as standard with each instrument.

  • Control of separate channels individually
  • All channels simultaneously
  • Synchronous start
  • Data from different channels plotted individually or in 1 single graph
