It is used if one(or both) if the oxidizing(or reducing ) agents are not conductors. Thus, if they are not a metal or if they aqueous ions, before and after the reaction, you need an inert metal such at Pt, to be the electrode and transfer electrons. In the cell diagram, you would just add a vertical line next to the agents that are not conductors and then write the inert metal.
