    Calibrating WQ-CL Chloride Smart USB Sensor

    It is recommended that calibration is done on a daily basis, or at least prior to each use. During calibration, observe the slope of the mV readings between the two points that are being used for calibration. Slope is defined as the change in voltage read by the sensor with a ten-fold change in concentration […]
