-Primary Test: The Go Direct ORP Sensor consists of an ORP Electrode connected to a Go Direct Electrode Amplifier using a BNC connector. Connect the Electrode Amplifier to your device. Run the data-collection program and set up the ORP Sensor to read in units of mV, if necessary. Place the tip of the sensor in a buffer solution of known pH and check the readings.
Typical readings, in mV, of various buffer solutions are
pH 4 buffer solution: 410 – 430 mV
pH 7 buffer solution: 280 – 300 mV
pH 10 buffer solution: 130 – 150 mV

-Electrode responses vary significantly among electrodes, time, and temperature. This behavior drives the need for calibration. However, the Go Direct Electrode Amplifier mV response is dictated by the amplifier (as opposed to the electrode) and does not change over time, temperature, or with the electrode being attached. Calibration of the ORP sensor in mV by putting it into different standards does not provide a better mV calibration. It provides a worse calibration as it will assume the ORP is perfect. Then the mV reading will be off regardless of which electrode is connected.
