The CompactStat offers a complete package, all the standard Electrochemical techniques are included. The CompactStat also has an integrated high-performance Frequency Response Analyser for EIS measurements from 10µHz to 3MHz. All measurement and dataprocessing software is included (for Windows based pc’s).

Small footprint (< 600 gram) and low power consumption. The instrument can be operated via the USB port from a pc, without additional power supply. In combination with a laptop-computer, the Ivium CompactStat provides a truly mobile electrochemical measurement station for corrosion and analytical applications.

The CompactStat is delivered in a protective hardcase that holds all cables, power adapter, test cell, electrode clips and has extra space for your accessories. Optionally a Pelican® all weather case is also available.


The CompactStat is available in four power configurations:
±30mA @ ±10V
±800mA @ ±10V*
±250mA @ ±20V*
±30mA @ ±100V*

The CompactStat is controlled via Ivium’s own IviumSoft. This versatile, yet intuitive software, allows instrument control, data management and analysis, peripheral instrument control, etc. IviumSoft can also interface with and be controlled from LabVIEWTM, C++, Delphi, etc. A full suite of IviumSoft is standard included with each instrument.
