The Milwaukee Pocket-size EC/TDS/Temp Meter is a waterproof, instrument with automatic temperature compensation, automatic one-point calibration, and a dual-level LCD screen that displays both temperature and either conductivity or total dissolved solids (TDS). It comes with the Mi59P probe, which is replaceable. Conductivity meters are commonly used in the water-quality testing, waste-water treatment, hydroponics, agriculture, and aquaculture industries, in cosmetics manufacturing, and in laboratory research. Conductivity meters, also known as electrical conductivity (EC) meters, measure the ability of a solution or material to conduct an electrical current. This measurement helps determine if the solution is, for example, contaminated or contains too much saline. In general, pure solutions, such as distilled water, have low conductivity. More saline- or nutrient-rich solutions, such as seawater or fertilizers, have high conductivity. Conductivity measurements are often used with total dissolved solids (TDS) measurements, which are typically expressed in ppm (parts per million). TDS consist of dissolved minerals and salts. To determine the amount of TDS, conductivity is measured, and the result is converted to a TDS measurement. Different meters provide results for conductivity, TDS, or both, and the application determines meter selection.
