Description

The model 1500 EC sensor is designed for measuring electrical conductivity (salinity) of liquids at remote locations.

The fully sealed design has proven durable and reliable, being used in the water industry for decades. It is well suited for low power operation where access and site visits are limited.

Unlike conventional electrode based cells, the encapsulated toroid design requires very little maintenance, ensuring many years of accurate data collection without recalibration, and the delrin-tube design and embedded temperature sensors avoid issues of degradation due to corrosion.

Features
