WPI offers an array of metal microelectrodes. In this guide, we will look at introductory assortments, concentric electrodes, profile A, profile B and profile C electrodes. For basic information on these types of metal electrodes, see the Metal Microelectrode Basics page. Links to these related posts appear below this article.
Eligoy Steel is a *Cobalt/chromium/nickel alloy.
Deciphering Part Numbers
With few exceptions, the WPI metal electrodes conform to a part number standard depicted below. For the part number shown, you can determine that:
Metal - The electrode is made of platinum iridium. (See the metal codes below.)
Length in inches - It is 2" long.
Coating Thickness in microns - It has a 3µm coating.
Core shaft diameter in millimeters - "B" electrodes with Kapton coating are 0.356mm.(See the core sh
