following features are important considerations when choosing an EC meter:
- Readout in Siemens (e.g. “mS”) or CF. Avoid
meters that will only yield
- Calibration facility.
- A waterproof housing is desirable. However,
this feature is generally not available on more sophisticated meters.
- Temperature compensation: A built-in
temperature sensor and computer algorithm adjusts readings to display what
the conductivity would be if the temperature was at 25OC / 77OF.
- Auto-off feature: For prolonging battery
