Reference electrodes - series RCE, RAE, RME, RRE

These reference electrodes have the function of a second half-cell against the proper indicative ion selective electrode. They are produced even in a form of second bridge versions which makes filling of the second salt bridge according to the requirements of the customer possible. At the inferior part all these electrodes are terminated by sintered corund ceramics. The reference electrodes are usually delivered with BNC connector. Following the requirements of the customers, bananas can be mounted as endings of cables. The electrodes with such a banana ending are designated by the letter B in the price list. The electrodes designed PT have a so called pin tip on the end of the cable. The reference electrodes, type RCE103, RAE 113, RME 123 are delivered with a thin glass tube of a 5 mm diameter. These electrodes are used during polarographic measurements especially. The RRE 131 type has the reference RedoX system.
