Three electrode measurement for AD5933?

Hi everybody,

 

we're using the AD5933 for bioelectrical electrode impedance measurements. Usually, the electrodes have to be immersed in a saline solution for measuring, and a 2 point measurement (Electrode to Reference electrode) adds unwanted potential offsets to the measurement. For a more accurate measurement, a technique using 3 electrodes is employed:

Is there any way to connect the AD5933 in such an arrangement to measure impedance? Do you have any additional suggestions for performing such a measurement?

 

Thanks and Kindest Regards,

  • Hi everybody,

    I add some extra info I have researched to see if somebody could help us. Here's one schematic of what the lab equipment does to measure electrode impedance. There is a stimulation voltage Vin that generates a current i, which is measured at a TIA. However, Vin is not directly applied to the electrode, but to a control loop that ensures that Vref=Vin. Therefore, Vin is between Vref and Virtual GND (working electrode). The impedance contribution of the counter electrode is thus eliminated.

    Do you think such arrangement is feasible with the AD5933?

    Cheers and Kind Regards,
