There is no cable supplied with the device. It needs to be powered by means of a wire-ended power line including phase, neutral and earth. The device is to be powered with an AC line between 100 and 240 VAC. For older devices (< 3.0) will it depend on the acquired version.
The cable size can be limited as the device requires less than 5W of power: e.g. 3 x 0.75mm² or 3 x 1.5mm² (mind the correct fusing according to the cable widths).
It is also recommended to install an external switch to power on or off in an easy manner.
The relays of the Consort controllers are Solid State types which are able to switch only AC Voltages between 12 to 250 VAC. They are not cooled and are limited to switch currents of max. 1 Ampere.
When one or more of these conditions is required:
It will be required to add a second mechanical relay which needs to be controlled by the Controller relay:
Please check next requirements to ensure a good installation of the electrodes.
Only use a typical electrode cable since:
High impedance pH/mV/O2 inputs should not be left open! Floating inputs may disturb the instrument.
Make sure that all parts are dry and clean! Moisture and dirt are conductive and influence the measurements.
Electrodes with S7/S8 heads can not be completely immersed. If necessary, make sure to use an immersible electrode + cable.
Make sure that your electrode is suitable for your application and environment. Check carefully the specifications of the electrode (min/max. pH, min/max. temperature, min/max. pressure, …) with the environmental parameters.
