Adequate care and maintenance are crucial for accurate results, satisfactory performance, and prolonging the life of your EC-PCSTestr35 Multi-Purpose Meter. Instrument Choice Scientists have assembled the essential maintenance tips for this device in an easy-to-follow Maintenance Guide.
Calibration is a critical step to ensuring your EC-PCSTestr35 is performing to its designed level of accuracy. Calibration should be performed at regular intervals, when a meter is giving inaccurate results, or after replacing an electrode.
Always keep the sensor electrodes clean. Soiled electrodes will have a compromised ability to obtain accurate measurements.

Storing the electrode within a protective cap is necessary to keep it safe and clean when not in use.
Maintaining an adequate source of power is fundamental to ensuring continuously accurate measurements. The EC-PCSTestr35 has a battery indicator on the LCD screen; see the low battery indicator table below. When the low battery indicator starts blinking, replace the four 1.5V A76 or LR44 1.5V alkaline batteries.
You will need to change the electrode module whenever your tester fails to calibrate or gives inconsistent or fluctuating readings in calibration standards. We recommend you replace the electrode module at a fraction of the price of a new tester by following the steps below:
