Windows initializes the USB converter device and automatically assigns the next available COM port. This is a problem if the converter is plugged into a different physical USB port, as windows will see it as a brand new device and will initialize it with a new COM port number.
Installation & Setup
Installing a new potentiostat, multiplexer, flexcell, or not certain what all those leads are for? Resources here will help get you going. Keep in mind that quite a bit of information can be found in the manual, quick start guide, and through the help menu in Framework and Analyst.
This technical note is intended to help you better understand what the calibration results for your Gamry potentiostat mean.
MultEchem systems allow multiple instruments to share a single software license and be run from a single computer. The system utilizes a USB dongle to activate the software license across all instruments.
Computers with Serial ports are become increasingly rare. However, many research instruments still rely on this very simple communication protocol. The USB-to-Serial adapter addresses the problem of the physical connection, but software must still be manually configured to interface with the device by a COM port number.
