MAXIMUM ROTATION RATE: Each electrode tip model used with the WaveVortex 10 rotator has a maximum rotation rate. Do not the exceed maximum rotation rate when working with rotating electrodes.
The WaveVortex 10 Electrode Rotator is designed to suit the needs of those looking to perform rotating disk (RDE) and rotating ring-disk (RRDE) electrode experiments with limited lab space. This small footprint rotator is compatible with all 15 mm OD RDE/RRDE electrodes manufactured by Pine Research, along with many of our cells, glassware, and accessories.
The control box, motor, shaft, and enclosure are all fixed into one convenient unit, making the WaveVortex compact and portable. The rotation rate can be manually adjusted on the front panel and monitored on the digital display. Alternately, a potentiostat can control the rotation rate using an appropriate rate control cable.
Electrode connections are made to the rotating shaft using silver-carbon brushes. There are two contacts – the red is for the disk, and the blue is for the ring.
