In addition to controlling up to eight electrochemical cells in sequence, the ECM8 also has local potentiostats on each channel. These are utilized in the standard Multiplexer experiments of Potentiostatic and Galvanic Corrosion to appropriately control the potential of the inactive cells.
Advanced Technical Topics
If you recently purchased a Gamry Interface 1000 Potentiostat and are experiencing a problem connecting it to a computer, your computer may have the Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller driver installed. Please read on for some background and workaround.
Occasionally a Reference or Interface potentiostat will be plugged into a computer’s USB port and will not be detected. Initially this may lead one to believe the USB communications on the instrument may have failed, and a repair is necessary.
The flexibility of Gamry’s Framework software is largely due to its foundation built around the EXPLAIN scripting language. All of the experiments run in Framework are written in EXPLAIN and the source code is available to the user for modification.
The following steps should be taken if your TDC4 displays "tOPN" even with the probe connected.
The Sequence Wizard includes steps to produce many of the same experiments that you can access from the main Experiment menu. However, the sequencer steps do not automatically carry out the open circuit potential measurement.
The signal optimization step of the OptiEIS experiments can take (at a minimum) as long as 2 cycles of the minimum frequency entered during setup.
Microsoft is Ending Support for Windows 7
Microsoft will discontinue support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020 which means Gamry will also be discontinuing support for Windows 7. If you are upgrading to Windows 10, like many companies and institutions, you need to be running Version 7 of our software. Please note that only USB and Ethernet-based instruments can run in Version 7. Eligible users can download the latest version of our software through our online Client Portal.
If you haven’t already registered your instrument, you can do so through the Client Portal.
Please email Technical Support if you have any questions regarding this transition. Please be sure to include your instrument model and serial number when contacting us.
