Temperature compensation
  • Temperature characteristic of NaCl (reference temperature: 5℃ to 95℃)
  • Arbitrary temperature coefficient input (reference temperature: 5℃ to 95℃; temperature coefficient: ±3%/℃)
  • No temperature compensation
    One of the three ways of compensation is selectable.
    (In the de-ionized water area, the temperature compensation for pure water is automatically performed in both NaCl and arbitrary temperature coefficient compensation settings.)
Temperature compensation
0℃ to 100℃ (However, the compensation calculation is extended lower than 0℃ or higher than 100℃.)
Temperature calibration1 point calibration comparing to reference thermometer
CalibrationConductivityBased on parameter input of coefficient for the sensor cell constant.

  • Note 1: Only the sanitary sensor (FS-01 series) is applied.
  • Note 2: Conductivity measurement and TDS conversion measurement cannot be selected at the same time.
  • Note 3: The maximum load resistance that can be connected is decided depending on the powersupply voltage.

  • Note 4: When the sensor cable, the transmission cable, or the contact input cable is extended by 30 m or more, the surge test under the EMC Directive for CE marking is not applied.
  • Note 5: An arrester (spark over voltage: 400 V) is implemented for transmission output, contact input, and communication. However, use a most suitable surge absorption element on the connection lines in accordance with the ambient environment, the situation of equipment installed, and the externally connected equipment.
