CALIBRATION
Important Information on Meter Calibration
Your meter has five measuring ranges. You have an option of calibrating your meter
in a single point calibration for all the five ranges or for better accuracy; you can
calibrate one point in each of the measuring ranges (up to five points). This selection
of single point calibration and multi point calibration can be set in the SETUP menu
Program P9.2. See page 52 .
The following table lists the corresponding conductivity and TDS ranges. For either
the single or multi point calibration, you should calibrate using a solution that falls
between the values in the “recommended calibration solution range” column.

Table 1: Recommended Calibration Solution Range in correspond to Conductivity / TDS
In single point calibration, when you recalibrate your meter, the old calibration will be
replaced by the new one even if the new calibration is done in a different range from
the old calibration. For example, if you have previously calibrated your conductivity
meter at 1413 µS in 0 to 2000 µS range, and you recalibrate at 12.88 mS in 0 to
20.00 mS range, the new calibration will override the previous calibration in 0 to 2000
uS range.
In the case of multi point calibration, when you recalibrate your meter, old calibrations
are replaced only on a range basis. For example, if you previously calibrated your
conductivity meter at 1413 µS in 0 to 2000 µS range and you recalibrate at 1500 µS
(also in 0 to 2000 µS range), the meter will replace only the old calibration data (1413
µS) in that range. The meter will retain all calibration data in other ranges.
To completely recalibrate your meter, or when you use a replacement electrode, it is
best to clear all calibration data. See page 45 for more information on calibration data
clearance.

Instruction Manual
4.2
CON 11/110
Preparing the Meter for Calibration
Before starting calibration, make sure you are in the correct measurement mode.
For best results, select a standard value close to the sample value you are
measuring. Alternatively use a calibration solution value that is approximately 2/3 the
full-scale value of the measurement range you plan to use. For example, in the 0 to
2000 µS conductivity range, use a 1413 µS solution for calibration.
Perform calibration for all measurement ranges to ensure the highest accuracy
throughout all measurement range. Note that CON 11/110 will not accept calibration
values less than 2 µS/cm (1.0 ppm).
If you are measuring in solutions with Conductivity lower than 100 µS/cm or TDS
lower than 50 ppm, calibrate the meter at least once a week to get good accuracy. If
you are measuring in the mid ranges and you wash the electrode in deionised water
and store it dry, calibrate the meter once a month. If you take measurements at
extreme temperatures, calibrate at least once a week.
Ensure that you use new Conductivity standard solutions or sachets during
calibration. Do not reuse standard solutions as it may be contaminated and affect the
calibration and accuracy of measurements. Use fresh calibration solution each time
you calibrate your meter. Keep solutions in a dry and cool environment if possible.
Always rinse the electrode with either tap water or rinse solution before and after
each calibration/sample measurement to avoid cross-contamination.
NOTE: These meters are factory set to a temperature coefficient of 2.1%
per °C. For most applications this will provide good results.
NOTE: The factory default value for normalisation temperature is 25 °C.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
1. Meter allows a tolerance range of ±40% of its calibration standard.
If the calibration standard is detected out of the tolerance range
during the calibration mode, the meter will prompt by the toggling of
the secondary display continuously between various calibration
standard values. An error message “ERR” will be displayed for 3
seconds if you attempt to calibrate with a solution whose value is
outside the tolerance range.
For instance: For 1413 µS conductivity calibration standard, 40%
tolerance is from 848 µS to 1978 µS.
2. All new calibration data will over-ride existing stored calibration data
for each measuring range calibrated.
3. It is important to use new conductivity calibration standards.
4. Low conductivity standard solution (less than 20 µS /cm) cannot be
available easily. Such low conductivity standard will be
contaminated as soon as it is exposed to the air. It is therefore for
this reason automatic calibration in the first measurement range
(0.00 to 20.0 µS /cm) of this meter is not possible.

TDS Calibration
4.7.1 Calibrating for TDS Using Conductivity Standards & adjusting TDS factor
It is important to note that the increase in concentration of salts dissolved in solution
increases the conductivity of that solution. This relationship varies from salt to salt
and is roughly linear over a given range for a given salt. The TDS conversion factor is
the number used by the meter to convert from conductivity to TDS.
Instead of calibrating for TDS directly using TDS calibration standard solutions, you
can have TDS calibration by using the conductivity calibration method and enter the
appropriate TDS conversion factor into the meter.
For more information regarding TDS Conversion Factor determination, please refer to
page 73.

ELECTRODE CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Keep the conductivity electrode clean. Rinse the
electrode twice, and gently swirl it while you take
readings. For best accuracy, soak a dry electrode for at
least 5 to 10 minutes or longer before calibration. Rinse
the electrode with de ionised or tap water before
storing. Never scratch the bands with a hard substance.
Do not strike the electrode against any hard surface.
Do not immerse the electrode in oily solutions. Clean
the electrode thoroughly by stirring it in a mild detergent
bath or isopropyl alcohol. Wipe the electrode with a soft
tissue paper. Rinse thoroughly in tap water and then in
de ionised water. Recalibrate the meter after cleaning
the electrode.
The conductivity electrode (Order Part No: ECCONSEN91W/ 35608-50) which is included with your
meter features a removable electrode guard to make
cleaning easy. This guard must be attached to the
electrode during measurement or calibration.
To remove electrode guard:
1.
Grip yellow electrode guard and twist counter
clockwise. The locking notch will release.
2.
Slide electrode guard off end of electrode.

CALIBRATION TIPS
You only need one calibration for measurement throughout the entire range of the
meter. If a range was not calibrated, the meter automatically detects the closest
range calibrated and uses that calibration information. However, only the ranges that
were calibrated have maximum accuracy.
If you are measuring in ranges near to or greater than 20 mS (10 ppt), or near to or
lower than 100 µS (50 ppm), calibrate the meter at least once a week to get specified
±1% F.S. accuracy.
If you are measuring in the mid-ranges and you washed the electrode in de ionised
water and stored it dry, calibrate the meter at least once a month.
Wet the electrode for 10 minutes before calibrating or taking readings to saturate the
electrode surface and minimise drift. If you make measurements at extreme
temperatures, calibrate the meter at least once a week.
You should only use the conductivity / TDS electrode specified for these meters.
These electrodes have a built-in temperature sensor. If you use a different electrode
without a temperature sensor, you must measure the solution temperature separately
and manually enter the solution temperature (see manual temperature compensation
section on page 21).
17
CALCULATING TDS CONVERSION FACTORS
You can calibrate your meter using TDS calibration standard solutions. The
calibration standard only needs to give the TDS value at a standard temperature
such as 25 °C. To determine the conductivity-to-TDS conversion factor use the
following formula:
Factor = Actual TDS ÷ Actual Conductivity @ 25 °C
Definitions:
Actual TDS: Value from the solution bottle label or as a standard you make using
high purity water and precisely weighed salts.
Actual Conductivity: Value measured using a properly calibrated Conductivity /
Temperature meter.
Both the Actual TDS and the Actual Conductivity values must be in the same
magnitude of units. For example, if the TDS value is in ppm the conductivity value
must be in µS; if the TDS value is in ppt the conductivity value must be in mS.
Check your meter factor by multiplying the conductivity reading by the factor in the
above formula. The result should be in TDS value.
73
Instruction Manual
18
CON 11/110
CALCULATING TEMPERATURE COEFFICIENTS
To determine the temperature coefficient of your sample solution use this formula:
Where:
tc = Temperature coefficient
25 = 25 °C
CT1 = Conductivity at Temp 1
CT2 = Conductivity at Temp 2
T1 = Temp 1 T2 = Temp 2
NOTE: A controlled temperature water bath is ideal for this procedure
1. Immerse the electrode into a sample of your solution and adjust the temperature
coefficient to 0% (that is, no compensation) by performing the following:
2. From measurement mode, press the SETUP key to enter Setup menu.
3. Press the MI/S or MR/T key until the lower display reads P7.0.
4. Press the HOLD/ENTER key to display the temperature coefficient value.
5. Press the MR/T key until the upper display shows 0.0.
6. Press HOLD/ENTER key to confirm the value.
7. Press CAL/MEAS key to return to measurement mode.
8. Wait for 5 minutes. Note T1 and CT1 (conductivity at T1).
9. Condition the sample solution and electrode to a temperature (T2) that is about 5
°C to 10 °C different from T1, and note the conductivity reading CT2.
NOTE: Record your results for future reference. Ideally T1 and T2 should bracket your
measurement temperature, and should not differ by more than 5 °C.
10. Calculate the temperature coefficient of your solution using the formula shown
above.
11. Enter the temperature coefficient you calculated into the meter by following the
following steps.
12. From measurement mode, press the SETUP key to enter Setup mode.
13. Press the MR/T key until the lower display reads P7.0.
14. Press the HOLD/ENTER key to show the temperature coefficient value (should be
0, as per step 1 above).
15. Press the MI/S key until the upper display shows your calculated temperature
coefficient.
16. Press HOLD/ENTER key to confirm the value.
17. Press CAL/MEAS key twice to return to measurement mode.
The calculated temperature coefficient will not be applied to all the meter readings.
