Because my original goal is not to measure conductivity, but presence only, I am hesitant to buy an off-the-shelf variant, and I think that it would be awesome to make my instrument.
Right now, precision is more important to me than accuracy. Though, if it seems possible and I can consistently obtain realistic values, that may change.
Wow, thanks a lot for the literature, and also for the new resources. Public Lab seems to have some really good stuff and I will for sure be lurking around there.
I see that DC voltage is not recommended for use in conductivity measurements for electrochemical reasons, as well as 5v is high and is not required for successful conductivity…[Read more]
Thanks a lot for your response.
Good idea with the titanium rod. How would you cut that?
Right now, I plan to use PVC to anchor the array to streambeds. I haven’t put the first one together yet, but I intend to use a coupler and end cap that will accommodate a cable gland big enough for my 5-conductor, 18awg cable. The housing for the…[Read more]
Ive put together a very basic conductivity probe that provides an indication(unit-less) of the presence of water.
On the probe end Im using gold plated terminals for their corrosion resistance properties and an insane amount of “marine grade” heat shrink.
Sending 5v to one terminal and measuring any voltage received from the other ter…[Read more]
Would it possible that I complete a large purchase of them? I am working on building an intermittent stream monitor and intend to deploy as many as possible.
I have a few questions regarding the kit, and some if its components.
If possible, can we discuss further Shannon? Via email?
Thanks a lot
Is there an opportunity to purchase the miniSD card adapter separately?
Or is the only option to buy the starter kit?
I have a separate enclosure that I intend to use and that SD card slot adapter would be very helpful.
Welp…I figured it out, I think?
Its happy now, not sure what I did other than give it some time?
Hello Everyone! I am new to EnviroDIY and am very excited to find this community.
I have recently acquired the MayFly starter kit and intend to deploy and measure ambient temp/humidity as well as use a photosensor to record light levels in the field, save to an SD, as well as posting data onto the internet as some locations have access to WiFi. I…[Read more]
