Re: PH MEASUREMENTS WITH THE DrDAQ

ELECTRODE CALIBRATION It is good practice to calibrate the electrode before doing pH measurements. For reliable calibration it is essential to do it with a stable ambient temperature of 25°C and to have all components, probes, buffers, etc. at the same temperature within +/- 2°C. Calibration is don...

Re: PH MEASUREMENTS WITH THE DrDAQ

PH ELECTRODES - CARE & LIMITATIONS Low cost pH electrodes such as the Picolog DD011 and others freely available on Internet require handling precautions and have basic limitations. Here is a limited list. 1. Testing them at 25°C ambient with a neutral (pH = 7) buffer, their output is not zero, but ...

Re: PH MEASUREMENTS WITH THE DrDAQ

BUILDING SENSORS FOR pH TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION [/size][/color] One of the advantages of the MATH COMPENSATION method is that all individual steps on the calculation of the TRUE pH can be monitored from the Picolog console. Another advantage is that different sensors apart from the DD100 can be us...

Re: TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION OF pH READINGS?

I need to perform a check and, if the the functionality of the temperature compensation switch has been removed (or not initially implemented), I'll put in an enhancement request for PicoLog to enable compensation via an external temp sensor. Hi Gerry, I fear there is a misunderstanding....At prese...
