Portable Conductivity Meters Product Description

The WTW Cond 1970i conductivity meter combines everything you want in a portable conductivity meter for water, wastewater and environmental monitoring.  Like all the WTW ProfiLine series meters the Cond 1970i portable conductivity meter is nearly indestructible with both hose down proof (IP 66) and submersible (IP 67) ratings.  But the Cond 1970i portable conductivity meter is also very accurate, capable and easy to use.  Along with an 800 data point datalogger, a real time clock and recorder output, the ProfiLine Cond 1970i portable conductivity meter conforms to all GLP requirements.  With its large, easy to read display, carrying/support handle and carrying strap the Cond 1970i portable conductivity meter goes with you wherever you need to do conductivity measurements - even on your bench top.

TA 197 LF deep water conductivity cell
The Cond 1970i portable conductivity meter is great for measurements in bore holes (down to 2" diameter), wells and deep bodies of water with the ability to take measurements down to 330 ft (100 m) in combination with the TA 197 LF depth armature.  The TA 197 LF submersible conductivity cell includes a built-in temperature sensor, up to 330 feet (100 m) cable with waterproof plug (IP 67), pressure-resistant steel armoring with screw-off protective hood, and is pressure-resistant to 145 psi (10 bar).

TetraCon® 325 Conductivity Probe
The TetraCon® 4-electrode system sets a new standard for professional conductivity measurements.  In comparison with conventional measuring cells with 2 electrodes, the TetraCon® 325 conductivity cell offers numerous technical advantages:

  • Highly accurate and linear because of optimized cell geometry
  • Extremely large measuring range with just one cell
  • Long-term cell constant stability with high-quality abrasion-resistant graphite electrodes
  • Built-in temperature sensor as standard
  • Smallest immersion depth possible
  • Automatic resistance compensation provides accurate measurements even with a dirty electrode
  • Measurement not affected by cable influences, polarization effects or contact with side walls
  • Robust, unbreakable epoxy body

Conductivity meter measurements
Conductivity is a parameter used to measure the ionic concentration and activity of a solution.  The more salt, acid or alkali in a solution, the greater its conductivity.  The unit of conductivity is S/m, often also S/cm.  The scale for aqueous solutions begins with pure water at a conductivity of 0.05 uS/cm (77 °F /25°C).  Naturally occurring waters such as drinking water or surface water have a conductivity in the range 100 – 1000 uS/cm.  At the upper end of the chart some acids and alcalines can be found.


Conductivity measurements are used for applications such as in the production of ultrapure water or determining the salinity of sea water.

Conductivity is measured by making a measurement of the electrical resistance.  The simplest kind of measuring cell used consists of two similar electrodes.  An alternating voltage applied to one of the electrodes causes the ions in the solution to migrate towards the electrodes.  The more ions in the solution, the greater the current which flows between the electrodes.  The instrument measures the current and uses Ohm's law to calculate first the conductance of the solution and then – by taken the cell data into account – the conductivity.

Portable conductivity meter applications
The ProfiLine Cond 1970i portable conductivity meters will work well in ground water, surface water, laboratory, food industry (juice), swimming pools, pharmaceutics, paint/varnish (soluble), or electorplating measurement applications.
