Interface 5000P

The Interface 5000P is a galvanostat designed for single-cell testing of batteries, fuel cells or any other energy device.  It can perform charge, discharge, cyclic charge discharge, read cell voltage, self-discharge, and leakage rate.

System Highlights

Interface 5000P

The Gamry Interface 5000P is designed for people doing cell-level testing of various energy storage and conversion devices.  It even includes capabilities for monitoring both half cell voltages in addition to the whole cell voltage during an experiment.  Imagine the time savings in being able to characterize both half cells and the full cell in the same experiment.  

Characterizing Both Half Cells

The Interface 5000P has the ability to monitor both half cells during experiments. Dual electrometers measure the potential of the anode and cathode in addition to the full cell voltage when used with an embedded reference electrode.
