Vernier Go Direct Platinum-Cell Conductivity ProbeOrder code: GDX-CONPT
Perfect for senior secondary and university general chemistry, Vernier's Go Direct Platinum-Cell Conductivity Probe provides an accurate and easy measurement of a solution’s conductivity or its total ion concentration. The platinum-cell sensing element provides high accuracy and chemical compatibility when measuring non-aqueous solutions, strong acids and strong bases. This probe connects via Bluetooth® wireless technology or via USB to your device.
The probe measures from 0 to 20,000μS/cm to provide optimal precision in any given range. The platinum-cell electrode provides increased accuracy by reducing polarization effects common in graphite conductivity probes. The sensing element with its epoxy body provides greater chemical compatibility during experiments such as the base hydrolysis of ethyl acetate under various conditions. Conductivity measurements can be taken in non-aqueous solutions, strong acids and strong bases without damage to the sensor body or sensing element.
Conductivity is one of the most common environmental tests of aquatic samples and this durable probe is well suited to field investigations. The test quickly determines the total concentration of ions in a sample. (Note: test does not tell you specific ions that are present)
The probe features a built-in temperature sensor so conductivity and temperature are simultaneously read. Automatic temperature compensation allows students to calibrate the probe in the lab and then make measurements outdoors without temperature changes affecting data. This temperature compensation can be turned off to perform conductivity studies as a function of temperature.
