PRODUCT DETAILS

  • APERA's unique Replaceable BPB (Brush-resistant Platinum Black) probe ensures high accuracy and consistency in a wide-range conductivity measurement
  • EASY Auto Calibration with auto buffer recognition; Auto Temp. Compensation (ATC) ensures accuracy in variant temperatures (0-50.0°C)
  • LARGE CLEAR LCD with 2 backlit colours (indicating 2 different modes), DUAL Display of temp./EC, and indications of completed calibrations and stable readings
  • EASY Switch from EC to TDS/Salinity with customizable TDS factor (0.40-1.00)
  • Complete kit with ready-to-use calibration solutions, calibration bottles, AAA batteries, and a lanyard all in a portable carrying case

The Apera Instruments EC60 Portable Pocket EC/TDS/Salinity Meter/Tester simply tests all kinds of regular conductivity measurements in an ACCURATE, QUICK, and RELIABLE manner. The applications include hydroponics, tap/drinking water, pools& spas, education, water treatment, environmental monitoring, etc. Up to 3 points of Auto Calibration with auto buffer recognition and 0 to 50°C Auto Temperature Compensation (ATC), 0.01 mS/±1% F.S, 0.5°C accuracy with measuring range of 0-200.0 μS/cm, 0-2000 μS/cm, 0-20.00 mS/cm, 0-50.0°C.

APERA's unique BPB (Brush-Resistant Platinum Black) sensor adopts a special processing technology, which minimizes electrode polarization, expands measuring range, and increases the firmness of the electrode, hence ensuring a much higher accuracy and consistency in a wide-range conductivity measurement than traditional stainless steel electrodes, and is easy to clean. The probe is replaceable and easy to install so that you don't have to buy a whole new meter once the probe is aged.

Auto recognition and indication of stable values improves consistency, saving you the trouble of guessing when to manually hold measurement. With a large clear 180° viewing angle screen with 2 backlit colours (blue for measuring mode and green for calibration mode), it supports dual display of temp./EC value and indications of completed calibrations (where M/H indicate 2 points of calibrations) and stable readings (with a smiley face).

Easy menu setting, customizing your tester functions according to your needs (switch of temperature unit, TDS factor setting, Switch of salinity unit, auto hold on/off). Smart self-diagnosis, warning of out-of-range/preset measurement and incorrect calibrations.

Comes with a complete kit. IP67 waterproof and dustproof, floating on water. 1000 hours' continuous operation powered by AAA batteries (with low power warning and auto power off in 8 min if no operation).

Warranty: 2 years for the meter, 6 months for the probe.
