The Platinum-Cell Conductivity Probe allows students to explore the dependence of conductivity on temperature with the option of aqueous temperature compensation (2%) or no temperature compensation. The 2-cell platinum sensing element and epoxy body of this electrode ensures greater chemical compatibility and accuracy when measuring the conductivity of stronger acids and bases and non-aqueous solutions. This plug and play sensor also boasts an improved accuracy over comparable conductivity meters. No calibration necessary.
