The WaveVortex is Pine Research's newest electrode rotator! With a small footprint and affordable price, the WaveVortex is ideal for those needing to perform rotating disk electrode (RDE) or rotating ring-disk electrode (RRDE) studies with smaller lab spaces and tighter budgets. The WaveVortex design combines the rotator, control unit, shaft, and enclosure in one compact and convenient package. The WaveVortex is also compatible with any existing 15 mm OD RDE and RRDE electrodes manufactured by Pine Research, along with many of our cells, glassware, and accessories.
The WaveVortex 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 and tight budgets. This low-cost, small footprint rotator is compatible with any existing 15 mm OD RDE/RRDE electrodes manufactured by Pine Research, along with many of our cells, glassware, and accessories. See below for list and links of compatible electrodes.
Control box, motor, shaft, and enclosure are all fixed into one convenient unit, making the WaveVortex compact and easily moved around. Rotation rate can be manually controlled on the front panel with digital display, as well as using an external voltage source from a potentiostat or other voltage source for secondary rotation rate control.
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.
