DESCRIPTION AND USE OF CONTROLS AND INDICATORS FOR ULTRAMETER 6P
Refill cell cup with sample.
Press <COND> or <TDS>.
Take reading. A display of [----] indicates an over-range condition from meter setting.
atmospheric gasses, so measuring a flowing sample is recommended.
Hold instrument at 30 angle (cup sloping downward).
Let sample flow continuously into conductivity cell with no aeration.
Press <RES> key, use best reading from sample.
NOTE: If reading is lower than 10 kilo-ohms display will be dashes: [----]. Use Conductivity
Remove protective cap by squeezing its sides and pulling up.
Rinse sensor well 3 times with sample to be measured. Shake out each sample to remove any
Refill sensor well with sample.
After use, fill pH/ORP sensor well with storage solution and replace protective cap. Do not allow pH/ORP sensor to dry
out. If of the above are available use salty tap water. (ref. Cleaning pH/ORP Sensors)
Why Solution Selection is Available
Conductivity, Resistivity, and TDS require temperature correction to 25C (XII). Selection determines the temperature
correction of conductivity and calculation of TDS from compensated conductivity. (ref. Cond. Conversion to TDS).
The 4 Solution Types
On the left side of the display is the salt solution characteristic used to model temperature compensation of conductivity and
its TDS conversion. Generally, using KCL for conductivity, NaCl for resistivity and 442 (Natural water characteristic) for
TDS will reflect present industry practice for standardization. This is the setup as shipped form the factory. (ref. Solution
The USER selection allows a custom value to be entered for the temperature compensation of conductivity and also the
conversion ratio if measuring TDS.
