    Are the items beneath conductivity measured in parts per million or percentage? I’m assuming it’s ppm.

    Also, do you know what conversion to use for the Logemann Ec reading to ppm?

      Hi, sorry for the late reply,

      I imagine that they are ppm. The guide does not specifically say so in the English version, and I can’t find any information on the German version either. That said, I also can’t understand German.

      I may have to email the Logemann brothers about this for a definite answer.

      Ec and TDS are not strictly proportional, as Ec measured charged particles and TDS measures all particles. One does not determine the other. However, in general 1ppm = 1.5 to 2 microsiemens.
