Industrial Conductivity Probe K 1.0Atlas Scientific
- Atlas Scientific
An E.C. (electrical conductivity) probe measures the electrical conductivity in a solution. It is commonly used in hydroponics, aquaculture and freshwater systems to monitor the amount of nutrients, salts or impurities in the water.
Inside the industrial conductivity probe, two electrodes are positioned adjacent to each other, an AC voltage is applied to the electrodes causing cations to move to the negatively charged electrode, while the anions move to the positively electrode. The more free electrolyte the liquid contains, the higher the electrical conductivity.
