Chapter 2 Product Overview

2.1 Product Information
pH describes the Potential of Hydrogen of the water body and its basic properties. If pH is less than 7.0, it means the water is acidic; If pH equals to 7.0, it means the water is neutral, and if pH is more than 7.0, it means the water is alkaline.
The pH sensor uses a composite electrode that combines the glass indicating electrode and the reference electrode to measure the pH of the water. The data is stable, performance is reliable, and installation is simple.
It is widely used in such fields as sewage plants, water works, water supply stations, surface water, and industries; Figure 1 provides the dimensional drawing which shows the size of the sensor.

(3)PH analog-to-digital converter module joint has a shorter heat shrinkable tube can be used for grounding.When using the heat shrinkable tube must be cut open, revealing a red line to ground.

Chapter 4 Interface and Operation
4.1 User Interface
① The sensor uses RS485 to USB for connecting to the computer, and then install the CD-ROM software Modbus Poll to the upper computer, double-click and execute the Mbpoll.exe to follow the prompts for installation, eventually, you can enter the user interface.
② If it’s the first time, you need to register first. Click "Connection" on the menu bar and select the first line in the drop-down menu. Connection Setup will display the dialog box for registration. As the figure shown below. Copy the attached registration code to the Registration Key and click "OK" to complete the registration.

4.2 Parameter Setting
1. Click Setup on the menu bar, select Read / Write Definition, and then click OK after following the Figure below to set the preferences.

Note: The initial default of the slave address (Slave ID) is 2, and when the slave address is changed, the slave address is communicated with the new address and the next slave address is also the most recently changed address.
2. Click Connection on the menu bar, select the first line in the drop-down menu Connection setup, set it as the Figure shown below, and click OK.

Note: Port is set according to the port number of the connection.
Note: If the sensor has been connected as described, and the software Display status appears No Connection, it means it is not connected. Remove and replace the USB port or check the USB to RS485 converter, repeat the above operation until the sensor connection is successful.

Chapter 5 Calibration of Sensor
5.1 Preparation for Calibration
Before the test and calibration, some preparation need to be done for the sensor, which are as follows:
1) Before test, remove the test soak bottle or rubber cover which are used to protect the electrode from the soak solution, immerse the measuring terminal of the electrode into distilled water, stir and make it clean; then pull the electrode out of the solution, and clean the distilled water with filter paper.
2) Observe the inside of the sensitive bulb to see if it is full of liquid, if bubbles have been found, the measuring terminal of the electrode should be shaken gently downwards (like shaking body thermometer) to remove the bubbles inside the sensitive bulb, otherwise it will affect the accuracy of the test.

5.2 PH Calibration
The pH sensor needs to be calibrated before use. Self-calibration can be done as following procedures. pH calibration requires 6.86 pH and 4.01 pH standard buffer solution, the specific steps are as follows:
1. Connect the sensor to the PC to ensure that the connection is correct and then put it into a buffer solution with a pH of 6.86 and stir in the solution at an appropriate rate.
2. After the data stabilizes, double-click the data frame on the right side of 6864 and enter the buffer solution value of 6864 (representing a solution with a pH of 6.864) in the calibration neutral solution register, as shown in the following Figure, and then click Send.

3. Remove the probe, rinse the probe with deionized water, and clean the residual water with filter paper; then place it in a buffer solution with a pH of 4.01 and stir in the solution at an appropriate rate. Wait until the data is stabilized, double-click the data box on the right side of the 4001 and fill the 4001 buffer solution (representing a pH of 4.001) in the calibration acid solution register, as shown in the following Figure, and then click Send.

4.After the acid point solution calibration is completed, the sensor will be washed with distilled water, and dried; then the sensor can be tested with the test solution, record the pH value after it’s stabilized.

Chapter 7 Care and Maintenance
In order to obtain the best measurement results, the regular care and maintenance are very needed. Care and maintenance mainly include the preservation of the sensor, checking the sensor to see if it is damaged or not and so forth. Meanwhile, the status of the sensor can be observed during care and inspection.

7.1 Sensor Cleaning
After long-term use, the slope and response speed of the electrode maybe slow down. The measuring terminal of the electrode can be immersed in 4% HF for 3~5 seconds or diluted HCl solution for 1~2 minutes. And then be washed with distilled water in potassium chloride (4M) solution and soaked for 24 hours or more to make it new.

7.2 Preservation of Sensor
During the interstitial period of the use of electrode, please try to clean the measuring terminal of the electrode with distilled water. If the electrode shall not be used for a long period of time; it should be rinsed and dried, and should be stored in the attached soak bottle or rubber cover containing the soaking solution.

7.3 Inspection on the damage of sensor
Check the appearance of the sensor and glass bulbs to see if they are damaged or not, if damages are found, it is necessary to replace the sensor in time. In the tested solution, if it contains sensitive bulb or junction-blocking substances leaving the electrode passivation, the phenomenon is significantly slower response time, slope reduction or unstable readings. As a result, it should be based on the nature of these contaminants, use the appropriate solvent for cleaning, thus making it new. Contaminants and appropriate Detergents are listed below for reference.

Contaminants Detergents
Inorganic Metallic Oxide 0.1 mol/L HCl
Organic Grease Substance Weak Alkalinity or Detergent
Resin, High Molecular Hydrocarbons Alcohol, Acetone and Ethanol
Protein Blood Deposit Acidity Enzyme Solution
Dyestuff Substance Diluted Hypochlorous Acid Liquid
