Detailed description:CPC-401 is designed for accurate measurement of: pH, redox potential, conductivity, resistivity, salinity and temperature. The currently offered model has been modified and is equipped with new functions which make working easier and ensure higher accuracy.
- Used for work in the field and in the laboratory.
- Waterproof housing (IP-66) facilitates work in difficult conditions.
- The meter is equipped with easy-to-read backlit LCD with brightness control.
- ”HOLD” function to freeze the result on the display.
- Signalisation of the result stabilisation withe the ”READY” symbol and a sound.
- Possibility of sending the calibration report to a PC - up to 10 last calibrations.
- Standarisation of the procedures in all measuring functions makes working easier.
In the pH measurement mode:
- Depending on the chosen electrode, making measurements in clean water, sewage and soil is possible.
- pH electrode calibration in 1 ÷ 5 points.
- Automatic detection of buffer solutions, introduced by the user.
- Automatic correction of the stored pH standard solution value along with the temperature changes for NIST standards, what eliminates the necessity of warming up or cooling them down.
- Storing of 3 pH electrodes’ characteristics enables their quick replacing – very useful feature during field work.
- Automatic evaluation of the electrode’s condition.
- Readout of the pH electrode condition and data - the offset and slope percentage may be viewed.
- The pH and conductivity measurement circuits are isolated, so there is no interference.
In the redox (mV) measuring function:
- Precise redox potential measurement (accuracy 0.1 mV).
- Possibility of making the relative measurement.
In the conductivity measurement function:
- Wide measuring range enables measurements in ultra pure water, natural water as well as in salines and chemical compounds.
- Resistivity measurement of the tested liquid.
- Salinity measurement in conversion to NaCl or KCl.
- Defining TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) based on conductivity measurement.
- 6 sub-ranges switched automatically.
- Wide range of α coefficient chosen depending on the type of measured solution.
- In case of measurements of natural water with conductivity from 60 μS/cm to 1 mS/cm the meter enables using non-linear temperature compensation. The parameters of this type of water are determined in norm EN27888:1999 and concern surface waters, deep water and well water. This solution lowers the measurement error.
- The measurement accuracy of the ultra pure water with temperature compensation was increased by automatic adjustment of the α coefficient depending on the temperature and kind of trace contaminations.
- Calibration by entering the constant K of the cell or in standard solutions in 1 to 5 points.
- Possibility of changing the reference temperature.
- In set with high accuracy ECF-1 conductivity cell. Measuring range 0 ÷ 400 mS/cm sufficient for measurements in ultra pure water and high salt concentration samples. Metal electrodes are easy to clean and PVC body protects it against mechanical damage.
- Possibility of storing K constants of 3 conductivity cells.
- Automatic conversion of conductivity into salinity on the basis of the real characteristics and not a constant coefficient, what greatly increases accuracy.
- Possibility to measure electric admittance of tree seedlings (checking the vitality of seedlings with a special sensor).
- Automatic or manual temperature compensation.
- Internal clock with date.
- Internal datalogger enables storing up to 4000 measurements taken as single or in series with time, temperature and date.
- Non-volatile memory of the stored results and calibration data.
- The next calibration date reminder.
- Possibility of connecting with a PC by micro USB connector.
- Powered by rechargeable batteries, or power adapter with USB - micro USB cable.
- The meter meets the GLP requirements.
- 24 months of warranty for the meter.
- Software for data transmission and collection delivered in the set.
The standard set includes: ECF-1 conductivity sensor, CT2B-121 temperature sensor with Pt-1000B resistor, EPS-1 pH electrode for measurements in clean water. It should not be used in other types of liquids. Measurements in liquids with sediments should be made with use of the IJ-44A pH electrode, which enables measurements in various samples of both pure and contaminated liquids and semi-solids. Its unusual construction (”intermediate junction”) protects the real junction (diaphragma) of the electrode against clogging, ensures stable measurements in these types of liquids or semi-liquid masses, in which other electrodes stop working quickly. When properly handled, the electrode's lifetime is longer than the standard electrodes.
