Multi-channel booster

Product description

Complete solution

The OctoBoost16000 offers a flexible high current solution for both the OctoStats or Ivium single channel instruments. In combination with an OctoStat, the 16A channels on the booster can be combined (as long as the channels are neighbouring) to give a variable max current up to 128A (e.g. 8 x ±16A, 4 x ±32A, 2 x ±64A, 1 x ±64A and 4 x ±16A, 1 x 128A, etc.). In combination with a single channel instrument, the OctoBoost16000 functions as a 128A boooster.


The compliance (maximum current or potential) of the instrument can be defined by the operator. Thus valuable samples may be protected, and unsafe situations prevented.


  • Current range: 10A



The OctoStat/OctoBoost16000 is controlled via Ivium’s own software. This versatile, yet intuitive software, allows instrument control, data management and analysis, etc. The OctoStat can also be controlled from LabVIEWTM, C++, Delphi, etc. A full suite of software is included as standard with each instrument.

  • Control of separate channels individually
  • All channels simultaneously
  • Synchronous start
  • Data from different channels plotted individually or in 1 single graph
