4.4.3. There are two kinds of calibration methods which have been set in meter, the standard solution calibration method and constant calibration method, it is the standard solution calibration method in item 4.2. Electrode Calibration, the priority choice is standard solution calibration method, for it can ensure better accuracy when the accuracy of standard solution is accurate. If user is used to use constant calibration method, please set the electrode constant in the parameter set of P5 (see P17 item 4.5.6.). The two calibration methods can be selectively chose to use, they won’t affect each other. LCD won’t display calibration indication icon when adopting constant calibration method.

4.4.4. The temperature compensation coefficient of meter is 2.0%/℃ by producer setting. However, the conductivity temperature coefficient is different for solution of different variety and concentrations, the user can refer chart  (4-2), as well as the data which they own get in the experiment, to set in the parameter setting of P4. Meter will do automatic non-linear temperature compensation in the high purified water which less than 10 μ S / cm.

Please note that when setting the temperature coefficient of compensation to be 0, means there is no temperature compensation when testing, the measuring value is based on current temperature.

4.6. Considerations:

4.6.1. The conductivity electrode has been calibrated before meter leaving factory, user can directly use it under normal circumstance;

4.6.2. It is recommended to calibrate one time every month under the normal circumstances. It must be calibrated in time for high accuracy measurement. It is necessary to calibrate the newly purchased conductivity electrode or after using a certain period;

4.6.3. Keep the conductivity electrode clean and wash it with purified water, then throw off the water on it before and after testing. It’d better to rinse electrode with sample solution when measuring;

4.6.4. The platinum surface of 2401-M conductivity electrode is plated with a layer of metal platinum black to use as reducing the electrode polarization, enlarging the measuring range, so the surface of platinum can not be rubbed, and it only can be washed in water in case of damaging the platinum black coating. Wash the organic component pollution with tepid water containing detergent or with alcohol.

4.6.5. Conductivity electrode before use can be immersed in water, to prevent the platinum black to be passivated, if found the platinum black plated electrode is invalid, can immerse it into 10% nitric acid solution or 10% hydrochloric acid for 2 minutes, then rinse with purified water and again test. The platinum black needs to be recoated, or replacing a new conductivity electrode if this situation does not improve.

4.6.6. Please set P10 to be “On” to make meter restore to producer setting when meter’s calibration or display appears abnormal phenomenon, and do calibrate and test again.

4.6.7. Please don’t take power plug out when meter still working, user only can take out the plug after meter to be turned off.
