The Oakton 35606-10 Acorn CON 6 portable conductivity meter is a handheld, waterproof and dustproof meter that comes with a probe (K=1.0). The meter is commonly used to measure conductivity and temperature of a substance in pure and sea water testing, and in laboratory and industrial applications. This meter features push-button, single-point calibration with five, preset ranges at most used values for a wide range of results. It has a customizable cell constant and ATC for accuracy, as well as choice of manual compensation. It has a “hold” function for ease of recording readings, and an “auto/off” function that shuts the meter off after 20 minutes of nonuse. The meter comes with a conductivity/TDS/temperature probe (K=1.0), and a protective rubber boot for meter protection against environmental conditions with a built-in stand for benchtop or long-term use.
The 35606-10 meter has a conductivity range of 0 to 20.00, 200.0, 2000 μS/cm; 0 to 20.00, 200.0 mS/cm, resolution of 0.01, 0.1, 1.0 μS/cm 0.01, 0.1, S/cm, accuracy + or - 1% full-scale. Temperature range -10.0 to 110.0 degrees C (14.0 to 230.0 degrees F), resolution 0.1 degree C (0.1 degree F), accuracy + or - 0.5 degrees C (+ or - 0.9 degrees F). ATC up to 5 points (per range). Temperature coefficient 0.0 to 3.0% degrees C, normalization temperature 20.0 degrees C and 25.0 degrees C (selectable). The meter is 5.5(l) x 2.7(w) x 1.3(h) inches, and weighs 0.9 lb. It has up to 100 hours of continuous use with four 1.5-V AAA batteries (not included).
Conductivity meters measure the ability of a material or solution to conduct an electrical current, and are commonly used in hydroponics, aquaculture, agriculture and laboratory applications.
