Sensor Technology - How it works

2 Electrode Sensor Technology

Two electrode conductivity measurement is based on the ability to conduct a current between two electrodes. The concentration of ions in the liquid are directly proportional to the conductance of the liquid.

Pros Cons
  • Simple, time-proven electrode design
  • Industry standard cell constants determine measurement range
  • Works best for clean applications where electrodes do not get fouled
  • High accuracy and repeatability
  • Susceptible to coating and scale (no compensation)
  • Susceptible to corrosion
  • No diagnostics
