The Thermo Scientific Orion 1010901 Conductivity Meter Adapter is a cable with an 8-pin Mini-DIN that attaches to electrodes to avoid data loss. The Mini-DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung) connector locks to the probe for successful connection between the meter and the electrodes and to prevent data loss. The 8-pin DIN connector attaches to the meter. This adapter is compatible with Orion conductivity meter models 105A+, 115A+, 125A+, 145A+ and 150A+.
Conductivity (EC) is the ability of a solution or material to conduct an electrical current. TDS measurement indicates materials such as salts, bases or minerals, which contribute to electrical conductivity, within a solution. pH testers measure the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. EC, pH and TDS meters are commonly used by researchers, manufacturers and hobbyists in aquaculture, agriculture, hydroponics and water-testing and for scientific applications.
