The Atlas Scientific E.C. is an electrochemical sensor capable of reading the Electrical Conductivity, total dissolved solids and salinity of a liquid. This is a commonly measured electrochemical parameter used in fish tanks, swimming pools, hydroponic gardening, pollution monitoring and general chemistry.
There are 3 different types of sensors that can be used. This may seem a bit complex, however, it’s actually quite easy.
K 0.1 - This is used for taking readings of pure water. (most commonly sold sensor type.)
K 1.0 - This sensor is used to read naturally occurring fresh water to mildly salty water.
K 10.0 - This sensor is used for saltwater/ocean.
The Atlas Scientific Conductivity kit comes with everything you need to get your laboratory grade embedded Conductivity system up and running.
1x Conductivity Circuit
1x platinum conductivity probe ( K 1.0 for taking readings in naturally occurring fresh water to mildly salty water)
2x 125ml (4oz) calibration solutions (10,500 µs to 40,000µs)
