- Select a High/Low limit setting value will activate the controller when the measuring value goes above or below the setting value. Note, both setting values cannot input the same value.
- Hysteresis prevents rapid contact switching if the measuring value is fluctuating near the set point. Example: You have set the high alarm point at 10.00 mg/L and hysteresis value at 0.1 mg/L. If the measuring value overshoots the 10.1 mg/L, the controller will activate an external device. When the measuring value drops to 9.9 mg/L, the external device will switch off.
- The meter has RS 485 communication function, the default is 4.00 ~ 10.00 mg/L corresponds to 4.00 ~ 20.00 mA.
- Reset function will restore the meter back to factory default parameters, all calibration values and selected parameters will be reset.

Temperature Compensation and Calibration
DO Controller Polarographic Sensor (10 Parameters Setting) comes with a DO probe included built-in temperature sensor. When the wires of the sensor are connected to meter, the display will immediately show “ATC” indicator. The meter is now switched to automatic temperature compensation mode.
During the measurement, if the temperature reading displayed differs from that of an accurate thermometer, you need to calibrate the meter.
Press °C key to enter the temperature calibration mode, the display shows current temperature reading
- Press ◄ or ► key to set the temperature value.
- Press ENTER key to confirm. Calibration is completed.
DO Calibration in % Saturation Mode
DO Controller Polarographic Sensor (10 Parameters Setting) can be calibrated quickly in air. In the percentage saturation mode, the meter is able to perform either 1 or 2 points calibration. For single point calibration, we recommend that you perform 100 saturation calibration in the air. For the 2 points calibration, you need to use zero oxygen solution.
100% SATURATION CALIBRATION:
- Make sure that you have selected 1-point calibration in the setup menu.
- After the dissolved oxygen probe connected with the meter, turn the meter on 10 to 15 minutes to polarize the sensor.
- Press CAL key, the meter shows “CAL1/100”.
- Hold the dissolved oxygen probe in the air or place the sensor into air-saturated water for 3 to 5 minutes. Press ENTER key to confirm. Wait for the measured value to stabilize, the display shows “END”. Single point calibration is completed.
- Make sure that you have selected 2 points calibration in the setup menu.
- Repeat steps 1.2 to 1.4 above. When the first calibration point is done, the display shows “CAL2/0”. The meter prompts you to continue with second point calibration.
- Submerse probe in the zero oxygen solution, stir the sensor gently.
- Press ENTER key to confirm. Wait for the reading to stabilize (this can often take more than 10 minutes), the display shows “END”. The meter returns to measurement mode. Calibration is completed.
Performing a percentage saturation calibration will simultaneously calibrate the corresponding mg/L (or ppm) concentration value. Therefore, additional mg/L calibration isn’t required in most circumstances.
EXIT THE CALIBRATION:
During the calibration process, press key, the meter will return to measurement mode.
DO Controller Polarographic Sensor (10 Parameters Setting) is suitable for measuring the water, wastewater, brine and other liquids. If you use meter to measure seawater or other water containing large amounts of salt, please set the salinity coefficient before use. Some gas and steam such as chloride, sulfur dioxide, sulfureted hydrogen, ammonium, carbon dioxide and iodine can permeate the membrane via diffusion. So their existence will influence the measurement of dissolved oxygen.
If the sample contains solvent, grease, sulfide and alga, the membrane will be blocked, damaged or eroded.
- Press key to turn on the meter, wait for 15 minutes to polarize the probe.
- If necessary, to set the barometric pressure and salinity coefficients in the setup menu (Refer to “SETUP MENU” section).
- Submerse probe in the sample solution, make sure the temperature sensor on the probe is fully immersed.
- Stir the probe gently, wait for the reading to stabilize, record the measured value on the display.
Electrode Care and Maintenance
- Please always keep probe’s membrane moist.
- If you do not use the probe for long periods, please screw off membrane cap and rinse the probe’s cathode, anode and the membrane with distilled water, then soak up residual water on them with filter paper, and install the probe.
