ProboStat Normal System

If you need to do electrical characterization at high temperatures and in controlled atmospheres, we suggest a ProboStat™ normal system package. It includes what you need to get started with one method (e.g. 2 and 3-electrode measurements on disks). More methods can be added by adding components later on - the ProboStat™ base unit is ready for them all.


This system contains the fully equipped base unit and accessories for measurements on disk-type samples:

  • base unit with all connections and options

  • 1 enclosing tube (alumina or fused quartz)

  • 1 alumina disk sample support tube

  • 1 alumina spring load assembly 

  • 3 gas supply tubes (alumina and fused quartz) 

  • 1 thermocouple (S- or K-type) 

  • 4 single and double wire Pt/alumina electrode contacts

  • 4 Au sealing rings and 4 Ag sealing rings

  • Spare parts

  • Manual 

  • Coax cables, thermocouple cable, thermocouple plugs, and gas quick-connects

  • Tools, simple mounting bench stand, aluminium transport and storage case.


The package enables

  • Disk samples of up to selected diameter, e.g. 12 or 20 mm

  • Controlled atmosphere, concentration and permeability cells 

  • 2 and 3 electrode setups 

  • Conductivity, impedance spectroscopy, DC, transport number, etc.


Such a package represents an economic entry into dedicated studies with a more restricted set of methods and sample geometries. The package can at any time be expanded by more supports, electrode contacts, etc., supplied by us or made by the user (we can supply instructions and parts as necessary).
