Electrode identification card.pdf

GP# are used for replaceable electrode wraps (4-point bar samples) or GP2N electrode contacts

H# make direct contact to electrodes on disks or end electrodes on bars

GR# are used as reference electrodes or guard rings on disk samples

IN2 is used to make contact to the lower electrode on a disk sample from inside the support tube, thus allowing the use of a reference or guard electrode around it, or sealing the disk to the support for concentration cell, fuel cell, or other electrochemical cell tests.

VDP2 are used pairwise for van der Pauw measurements.

TC's are thermocouples for various uses.


Spring loads

20 mm and 24 mm versions for samples of said or smaller diameter.

Replacements and back-up sets

Springs (soft and hard)


Gas tubes

Straight, alumina

Bent, quartz

Silicone hose for in-chamber connections


Small parts

Gold or silver ring gaskets, alumina thermocouple caps, alumina sample support plates, alumina spacer rings, spares
