Good device and easy to handle


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:


I think the product is very useful, but it would be better if the voltage of the counterelectrode (responisble voltage) have a wider range, because sometimes there are distances and memebranes inbetween and a overload occurs. That would be easier with a higher responsible voltage of the counter electrode.

Simple but powerful


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:


A simple and easy-to-use potentiostat to perform EIS and CV electrochemical diagnostic methods for Li-ion batteries.

Great reproducible EIS-experiments


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Electrochemical fuel cell characterization

The Gamry Interface 5000E is a perfect tool for characterizing electrochemical processes within a fuel cell by impedance spectroscopy. In particular, the good and easy-to-use software as well as the Labview interfaces make the use of this and other Gamry devices very simple.

IFC 5000E is great for Li-Ion Battery testing.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Battery characterization

We're using four IFC 5000E for battery characterization and ageing diagnosis in our research battery laboratory. The results of those tests are used to assess the safety of aged/EOL Li-Ion batteries for further sencond life use. We really like the ease of use. You can just connect multiple IFC 5000E to a PC and the software automatically detects and connects them. The software for the experiments is very easy to use. What we'd wish to see for next generation equipment is a ethernet connection.

A great potentiostat in a small form factor


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Electrocatalysis research

Easy to use, versatile, and with plenty of experiment scripts, this portable potentiostat is my go-to. Pros: Great capabilities, experiment sequences are easy to build, easy to use, portable, the knowledge database/documentation on Gamry’s website is unparalleled, great customer service, inexpensive, 5 A current. Cons: Short cables (that make for better impedance results, yet can make it hard to reach), the cables are stiff and can get damaged by bending

Quality data and intuitive software interface. I would definitely purchase again!


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Flow battery testing and analysis

We use this unit to flow test battery electrolytes and evaluate their electrochemical performance. The software is straightforward to learn and use, especially for setting up long-term cycling studies. The EIS is superb and efficient. We have published data collected with the Interface 5000E in several top tier research journals.

Excellent instrument and great after-sales customer service.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Electrolysers, fuel cells and catalysis

The instrument is perfect for the application in terms of catalysis where the current range is from micro to milli amperes and the sensitivity is very good in that range. The best part is the dual electrometer where you can record both anode and cathode data as well as impedance for both anode and cathode. Even using a higher current range for fuel cells and electrolysers provides good sensitivity and stability. Thus, providing a solution for both lower and higher current density applications with much lower cost compared to other potentiostats. The service provided after salee is excellent as I have received great support every time I have had some questions. Responses are given within a day or two and they have gone out of their way to helping me develop new methods for my specific requirements.

The Interface 5000E potentiostat is designed for cell-level testing of various energy storage and conversion devices and includes capabilities for monitoring both half cell voltages in addition to the whole cell voltage during an experiment.

A second electrometer gives you the ability to monitor both half cells in a typical three electrode setup. You can monitor both the anode and cathode in addition to the entire cell in charge/discharge experiments and EIS experiments.


  • Designed for cell-level testing of various energy storage and conversion devices.
  • A second electrometer gives you the ability to measure both half-cell voltages in a typical three electrode setup.
  • EIS 10 μHz - 1 MHz.
  • Currents up to 5 A.

Techniques Available:

  • Battery Testing.
  • Testing of fuel cells and supercapacitors.
  • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy.
