Power Boosters

Solartron Power Boosters
In combination with single and multi-channel potentiostats, Solartron Analytical’s power boosters enable high performance electrochemical tests to be run on a wide range of energy storage devices and electrochemical cells. Techniques include potentiostat/galvanostat DC tests, cyclic voltammetry, ohmic drop and voltage/current pulse and change/discharge cycling. Add a frequency response analyzer (FRA) to the system for complete impedance (AC) characterisation of the cell. These power boosters are designed to operate with Solartron single and multi-channel potentiostats.

  • Floating design – for tests on grounded cells
  • Simultaneous DC and impedance testing on short stack fuel cells, as well as individual cells within the stack (depending on potentiostat capability)
  • Choice of models with up to 50V / 25A range
  • 100kHz impedance measurement bandwidth for SOFC and other high frequency applications
  • Controlled automatically by the potentiostat


  • Energy source development for laptops, mobile phones and power tools
  • Fuel cell and supercapacitor research for electric vehicles or standby power
  • Battery research, including new generation 42V lead acid automotive batteries
  • Electrochemical etching and electroplating

Sample Holders

Solartron 12962A Sample Holder

Model 12962A Sample Holder

Sample holder designed for accurate impedance testing of solid materials at room temperature. The holder consists of two parallel electrodes, one fixed and one that moves into contact with the sample, by micrometer adjustment. A guard ring and reference techniques  improve accuracy, by reducing “fringing” effects at the edge of the sample. Supplied with a standard 20mm diameter electrode.

Model 12963A Electrode Kit

Auxiliary electrode kit for the 12962A sample holder, allowing measurement of different sized materials. Includes 10mm, 30mm and 40 mm electrodes.

Model 12964A Liquid Sample Holder

Liquid sample holder with a guard ring and container shape, for measurement of small samples of liquid or powders. The holder can be disassembled easily for cleaning.
