Conductivity Meters (EC)
The conductivity of a fluid or a solution is the quantification of its ability to conduct or transmit electricity. It precisely depends upon the density of ions in the fluid and is directly proportional to the same. Conductivity is measured in Siemens per meter, and conductivity meters are the tools used to measure it. It checks the flow of electric current in a solution by connecting to the sensor which is immersed in the fluid. Conductivity meters find applications across industries where good conductor fluids or water bodies need to be tested and controlled.
There are various conductivity meter brands available at Cannon Water Technology, such as HM Digital and Myron L. We are well-known suppliers of good-quality conductivity meters and experts in supplying various types of water treatment equipment made by reputed brands.
Types of Conductivity Meters Available at Cannon Water Technology
Although most meters have all the options of measuring various parameters such as TDS, pH, and so on, here are a few generic types of conductivity meters that we offer:
- EC Conductivity Meters: EC is nothing but a simple electrical conductivity meter. These are commonly used to check the amount of nutrients, contaminants, and salts in water usually for agricultural applications.
- pH Conductivity Meters: These are either electronic or analog probes with both pH and conductivity measurement capabilities. The digital ones are modern sleek devices with a display and are water proof. Most of our pH hydrotesters are economical and with advanced microprocessor technology. They have one-point calibration and a wide temperature range.
- Handheld Conductivity Meters: These are easy-to-handle almost pen like devices. In fact, Cannon Water offers an extremely handy pen-like device for this. It has advanced features including a microprocessor-based circuitry.
- TDS Conductivity Meters: TDS stands for total dissolved solids in a solution or a liquid. Conductivity of a solution depends upon the amount of dissolved solids including salts present in it. It is measured with a TDS conductivity meter in parts per million. Most of them come with in-built temperature sensors and are chemical resistant.

- What is conductivity meter used for?
Conductivity meters are used to measure the capacity of a solution to conduct electricity. They are generally used in water quality testing, chemical analysis, and other applications where the measurement of ionic concentration or total dissolved solids is important.
How often should conductivity meters be calibrated?
Conductivity meters should be calibrated at least once every six months, but the frequency of calibration may vary depending on the manufacturer's recommendations, frequency of use, and environmental factors.
How do you measure conductivity accurately?
To measure conductivity accurately, you need to ensure that the measurement cell is properly calibrated, the electrodes are clean and free of contaminants, the sample is homogeneous, and the temperature is constant. It's also important to use the appropriate calibration solutions and follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific conductivity meter being used.
- Do conductivity meter need to be calibrated?
Yes, conductivity meters do need to be calibrated periodically to ensure accurate and reliable measurements.
- What are the standards for conductivity meter?
The most commonly used standards for conductivity calibration are the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) traceable solutions. These solutions have known and consistent values that can be used to calibrate conductivity meters and ensure accurate and reliable measurements.
- How to Select a Conductivity Meter?
When selecting a conductivity meter, consider the range of conductivity values you need to measure, the accuracy and precision required for your application, the sample type and size, the temperature range, and any additional features you may need, such as data logging or calibration alerts. It's also important to consider the reputation and support of the manufacturer and to choose a meter that is compatible with your laboratory or field setup.
