The Solartron 1287 Electrochemical interface is a high accuracy,
wide bandwidth potentiostat/galvanostat which offers a full range of ac/dc test capabilities; when coupled with
a frequency response analyzer.
Central to the measurement capability of 1287 are two high resolution digital voltmeters which provide simultaneous
voltage and current measurements. Using Solartron Analytical’s patented pulse width conversion technique, they
have high accuracy, stability and linearity throughout the entire range of the instrument. The 1287 has excellent
measurement resolution and accuracy down to 1μV for the reference electrodes and 1pA for the working electrode,
which makes it an ideal choice for electrochemical noise applications or measurements where signal levels are

The 1287 uses floating measurements on all connections: it is equally
at home measuring corrosion rates on grounded oil pipelines as it is in the laboratory. For safety reasons,
it is often necessary to ground laboratory equipment such as autoclaves, a major problem if your instrumentation
is not capable of floating measurements.
Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is widely used to enhance the information about reaction mechanisms
available from dc techniques. Designed with impedance testing very much in mind, the 1287’s performance is unsurpassed;
no other electrochemical interface matches the flatness and linearity of its frequency response. Solartron Analytical
FRAs use a single sine correlation algorithm which offers excellent noise and harmonic rejection. The technique
is particularly powerful for electrochemical applications since signal levels are usually very low (of the order
of millivolts), and are inevitably buried in noise. With the 1287/1260 combination it is possible to characterize
cells with a very wide range of impedances.
