Installation Method

The EC-1 sensor is meant to be fully submerged in your tank/reservoir. You can use the 3/4" NPT threading for inline installation. When mounting make sure the positioning allows the tip of the sensor to remain fully submerged and in a spot where it won't get bumped/knocked around.

Use and maintenance

Your sensor(s) will need periodic cleaning and calibration. The maintenance cycle can vary depending on your environment. To ensure you receive a long life from your sensor, please follow proper use/maintenance instructions.

Proper cleaning:

  1. Remove plastic cap from the tip of the sensor and run under fresh tap water (Do not use distilled, de-ionized, or reverse osmosis water).

  2. Fill a small container with clean tap water.

  3. Add a small amount of probe cleaner or mild dishwashing liquid.

  4. Gently stir sensor in solution. *Make sure you don't knock/bump the sensor off the sides of container to avoid damage*

Incorrect usage of this sensor voids our warranty.

Calibration

Part 1 - Zero Point Calibration

  1. Wipe Your Sensor Dry

  2. Suspend the sensor vertically in the air

  3. Wait for your readings to stabilize

  4. Press the “Calibrate” button.

Part 2 - Slope Calibration

  1. Fill a non-metallic container with calibration solution

  2. Enter calibration solution value into input prompt

  3. Swirl sensor in solution without touching the walls or bottom

  4. Suspend sensor in solution 1 inch (2.5cm) from the walls and bottom

  5. Wait for the reading to stabilize

  6. Press the "Calibrate" button
