Great video.Good Afternoon,
This is a short video on the Reference A and B Bottles. Since I used the Reference A and B bottles as my dosing containers while testing the ION Director, I thought it would be good to let others know the size of the bottles which I believe will helps others determine placement. Per GHL you can use dosing containers as long as the containers don’t allow evaporation. I have also included some observations on initial setup and testing. Enjoy!!
At 4:49 in the video, it's like when Toto pulled back the curtain!
For IOND, you must leave at least 8.5cm on the right side otherwise the cable will be too bentAt 4:49 in the video, it's like when Toto pulled back the curtain!
Thanks @Ditto for the video.
One question, left to right, what is the overall width including the probe? Reason I ask, the original pics of the IOND showed the same probe as the KHD. And with the new probe being different, I'm wondering if the overall width is larger or smaller that the KHD, thanks. I had planned to put the IOND next to my KHD, but now I might have to rethink my layout.
@Ditto - Thanks for the info. I'll have to wait to see how it fits in person. It's going to be tight, I might have to reconfigure my entire cabinet.@Member No 1 - Was going to cover this in the Initial Setup, but 12-1/2 inches but 13 inches would be better, and that would not allow you to pull the probe all the way out say for example the cabinet wall was right at 13 inches.
@paul 1961 - You have two modes of testing. Normal Mode is 9ml and High Precession Mode is 14ml. I promise to explain both in a video specific to testing.
@Janci - To answer your question about 55 Days using normal mode. with a 500 ML Bottle of Ref A and Ref B. I need to Caveat this also not for the first set of bottles you receive with the ION D. During the initial setup and the preparing of the cell you will use a bit more Ref B then Ref A on the initial setup of the probe when you prepare the chamber.
Another question was asked of me is their a minimum amount of testing must we test once per day. Could we test every other day or once a week, once every other week, once a month.
If you wish to automate the testing you must do it at least once per day and can be automated to as much as 24 times a day. But you could set the automated testing to 0 and hit the Start measurement button manually. This would allow you to test once per week, twice per week, only on Saturday's etc. The recommendation is not to go beyond 2 week interval of no testing. So technically if you wanted to you could test just twice a month but I would also recommend High Precession Mode for those type of test.
Also do the probe and reference fluids “expire”? Like if I was to buy extra, would it go bad sitting on my shelf? (I.e. ph probes do go bad even if unused)
