Calibration performs a number of tests on the instrument and its cell cable in order to give the best accuracy and stability. A dummy cell with known component values is necessary to evaluate the performance, as well as a faraday cage in order to eliminate environmental EM noise from affecting the calibration. Follow these steps to fully calibrate your potentiostat:
1. Connect to the Calibration side of the Gamry UDC4
2. Place the circuit into the Gamry Calibration Shield (or any Faraday Cage).
Be sure to clip the black ground lead(s) onto the grounding post. If you are using a Faraday Cage be sure to connect the black lead(s) to the cage.
3. Open the Gamry Framework software, select Experiment > Utilities > Calibrate Instrument.
4. Select the Instrument to calibrate, and select "Both" for Calibration Type.
Did your potentiostat pass calibration?
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.
