ECM8
1
Connect the USB-to-serial converter cable to the RS-232to-multiplexer cable.
2
Plug the USB-to-serial converter cable into a free USB port
on the host computer.
Windows® detects the cable, and assigns a COM port
number.
NOTE: If Windows® does not detect the cable, insert
the accompanying mini-CD to load the driver.
3
4
Attach the RS-232-tomultiplexer cable to the
RS-232C connector on the
back of the multiplexer.
Attach the Potentiostat/ECM8 cable to the cell cable jack
on your potentiostat. Attach the other end of the ECM8
cable to the multiplexer POTENTIOSTAT receptacle.
NOTE: Reference 3000 potentiostats also require the
special Y-shaped adapter.

6
Connect the power cord to the
rear of the multiplexer. Connect
the other end of the power cable
to the AC supply (mains).
Turn on the multiplexer via
the POWER switch on the
front of the unit.
The power indicator LED
illuminates red.
7
8
On your host computer, open the Gamry Framework software.
Choose Experiment > Utilities
> Multiplexer
Auto Detect.
The Multiplexer Auto Detect window appears, and the
automatic detecting software runs, searching for the COM
port. A window appears.
9
Click the OK button.
A window informs
you that the test
will begin.
10
Click the OK button, and watch the eight amber LEDs on
the front of the multiplexer illuminate in sequence three
times. Listen for the simultaneous clicks of the relays.
A window asks you
to restart Framework.
11
Click the OK button. Connect the included cell cables to
the desired channels on the back of the multiplexer, then
restart Framework.
12
In the Framework software, run the desired multiplexed
experiment.
13
Activate the
checkboxes
corresponding
to the active
channels on the
multiplexer.
When a particular channel runs, the amber LED for that
channel illuminates.
NOTE: If you are running AC experiments (e.g., EIS),
you must run AC calibration of your potentiostat with
the multiplexer connected. For all DC experiments
calibration is not needed.
WHAT DOES GAMRY SOFTWARE DO?
Gamry FrameworkTM
Controls your Gamry potentiostat for advanced
and flexible data aquisition. Select from
standardized experiments that are grouped by
research type or use the Sequence Wizard to
build complex automated experiments.
Echem AnalystTM
Quick and easy data analysis. Open your data
files with Echem Analyst to perform specialized
analysis algorithms and produce high quality
plots. Plots can be customized, overlaid, and
scaled, or data can be exported for use in other
plotting programs.
My Gamry DataTM
The default data folder location for Gamry
Framework data files. You will find a shortcut
on your desktop after installation. The data
folder location can be changed within Gamry
Framework by selecting Options > Path.
We have a variety of resources available to help you get started.
