The new CA10141 portable conductivity meter from Chauvin Arnoux aims to make checking water quality easy, in applications as diverse as swimming pool maintenance and regulatory testing of drinking water. This compact, handheld instrument, which features a fully waterproof design with an IP67 ingress protection rating, is designed for fast and reliable measurement of conductivity, TDS (total dissolved solids), salinity and temperature with all results clearly displayed on a large backlit LCD screen.

Applications include checking drinking water in compliance with the Drinking Water Directive 98/83/EC, checking salinity and conductivity of water used in food manufacturing processes, measuring the conductivity of water in industrial boilers, confirming water quality in swimming pools and monitoring water in natural pools and rivers as an aid to detecting pollution.

The CA10141 conductivity meter can measure conductivity over the range 0.050 µS/cm to 500.0 mS/cm, TDS from 0.001 mg/l to 499.9 g/l, and salinity from 2.0 to 42.0 psu. It also records the temperature at which the measurements are made over the range -10.0 to +120 ºC. In addition to showing the results on its integral LCD screen, the instrument also records them in its internal memory. This can store up to 30,000 time and date-stamped measurements which can subsequently be transferred, via a standard USB link, to a PC for analysis, reporting or archiving.

Equally suitable for use in the laboratory or on site, the Chauvin Arnoux CA10141 portable conductivity meter is supplied as standard in a rigid padded carrying case, together with an XCP4ST1 Capec four-pole conductivity cell with built-in Pt1000 temperature sensor. Also included are a ready-to-use 1408 µS/cm conductivity standard, a plastic beaker, a wrist strap and a quick-start guide. Other conductivity standards are available as options, as are adaptors for using conductivity cells with DIN, BNC, S7 and jack connectors.
