ProboStat Systems

Each ProboStat™ system includes a range of accessories. Some of these parts are general purpose, and some of them are specific to certain measurement methods. Below are listed some typical configurations and their uses.

 

Extensive system typical use:

  • Disk samples of varying diameters

  • Controlled atmospheres and concentration cells

  • 2, 3 and 4 electrode setups

  • van der Pauw 4-point measurements

  • Bar samples (4-point and Seebeck coefficient measurements)

  • Conductivity, impedance spectroscopy, DC measurements

  • Transport number, permeability, etc.

High voltage normal system typical use:

  • Polarization of dielectrics, breakdown tests, plasma electrodics etc. 

  • Controlled atmospheres or vacuum 

  • Tested to > 10 kV DC (feedthroughs / base unit only – actual tolerance depends on sample and atmosphere/pressure

Also for regular characterization of dielectrics and electroceramics:

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

  • Controlled atmospheres and concentration cells

  • 2 and 3 electrode setups

  • Conductivity, impedance spectroscopy, DC measurements

  • Transport number, permeability, etc.

Normal plus system typical use:

  • Disk samples of varying diameters

  • Controlled atmospheres and concentration cells 

  • 2 and 3 electrode setups 

  • Conductivity, impedance spectroscopy, DC measurements 

  • Transport number, permeability, etc. 

  • Contains a normal system plus an extra supply of some commonly consumed spare parts

Normal system typical use:

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

  • Controlled atmospheres and concentration cells 

  • 2 and 3 electrode setups 

  • Conductivity, impedance spectroscopy, DC measurements 

  • Transport number, permeability, etc. 

Minimum system typical use:
(after separate purchase or fabrication of small parts, simple tools, thermocouple and electrode contacts)

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

  • Controlled atmospheres and concentration cells 

  • 2 and 3 electrode setups 

  • Conductivity, impedance spectroscopy, DC measurements 

  • Transport number, permeability, etc. 

Base unit system

An option for those who want to make their own accessories and connections from scratch. It may also serve those who want to equip an earlier package with one or more base units to increase measurement throughput and make better use of all accessories.
