I am satisfied by its power but software should be improved.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area: Corrosion tests

"Reference 600+ (+ Softwares and Accessories) Overall + Hardware is very powerful - Softwares (Framework & Echem Analyst) should be improved Pros. + Very satisfying specification (No competitor in Pstat/Gstat/Impedance Analyzer) + Compactness + Electrodes and cells are also satisfying + Basic functions, script, and sequence wizard is very powerful + South Korean vendors (Won-A Tech) are always ready to help Cons. - Relatively expensive compared to other Pstats (But it is reasonable). - Framework & Echem Analyst(EA) need improvements to user interface 1. Setting up save file location is not intuitive. 2. In EA, when I open multiple data, the load data windows always shows designated folder. It should show the latest open folder for better convenience. 3. During EIS analysis, saved equivalent circuits does not appear in a fitting window. 4. Graphical user interface should be improved."

"It allows us to easily get results at low frequencies due to the impedance of the equipment. This is great when using organic coatings and steel coupons embedded in mortar/concrete."

Gamry potentiostats are great. I started with one and now own six.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Electrocatalysis and flow battery analysis

"Gamry potentiostats are very nice instruments. Easy to use (especially via sequencer) and produce very high quality data. Since my first G750, I now have 2x Ref600+, 2x Ref3000 and 2x Interface1000. I especially like the additional I/O connector which I use to control extra equipment (light / shutters for photoelectrochem, pumps for flow batteries etc). I also like being able to measure cell/compliance voltage simultaneously with working-reference potentials. The online support is brilliant - the application notes are very useful- especially info like checking impedance of reference electrodes."

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Corrosion measurements in reinforced concrete structures

"I have used Gamry Reference 600+ to perform electrochemical corrosion measurements during my Ph.D. dissertation. This device is an accurate piece of equipment, which is super easy to setup and use. There is a lot of useful information available on the Gamry website to learn how to work with the device and the Echem Analyst software. It's also very easy to calibrate. I just faced one problem with the cable (the connection got damaged) and Gamry support team immediately gave me a new cable for free. Very satisfied with the equipment and the service at Gamry! Keep it up Gamry!"

Good, capable and portable potentiostat.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Electrochemical measurements, batteries, electrocatalysis

"Reference 600+ is reasonably portable, ideal for in-situ experiments. Software is easy to use, although the UI is a bit lacking compared to other brands, for example it couldn't modify your settings on the fly. But, there is an option of customised scripting that expands the experiment possibility if you're willing to invest some time to learn to code. Price is slightly more affordable than other potentiostat with similar capabilities. After sales is reasonable, queries and service request through distributor network is usually prompt, but repairs can take a while if the parts or your hardware need to be shipped to the US."

"We originally used only Autolab potentiostats in our lab, but the value and features of the Gamry potentiostats led us to purchase the Interface 1000 and Reference 600. We have been very pleased with these instruments. They are particularly powerful for the corrosion methods such as ZRA."

Manufacturer's Response

We appreciate your concerns and comments, however after working with the lead engineer on your project it’s been determined that the grounding issue was not with our instrument but with the testing environment.

Good results, robust device, excited to have this in my lab.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Corrosion of rebar in concrete

"This device has helped complete the suite of equipment I have in my lab to measure/ monitor corrosion. At first it seemed that the test was a bit complicated as another reference probe needs to be constructed in house (which is not sold) with the equipment. But the technical staff and after sales service was amazing. They guided my group in how to set up the equipment and get it running."

Industry-leading instrument
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Analyze medical devices (EIS, voltommetry, etc)

"The instrument gives us what we need--reliable results in a small package. Our instrument is for R&D, so its versatility is crucial. I would like to see other (read: smaller) types of contacts for grabbing and holding very small samples (hence the 4/5 for ease of use) but otherwise, we are happy with the instrument."

  • Application Area:Analyze electrochemical properties of porous carbon materials, we usually test CV, CD, EIS and etc.

"We usually use the machine for testing CV , charging-discharging, or EIS properties of our porous carbon material. It works very well on these tests. the results are reproducible, easy operating, data is good. Also, the service is also good. On many aspects, I like this work station. Two things could be further improved: 1, the fan is noising; 2, the plastic adapters could be firmed."
