Calibration Check features on the HI222 prompt the user to clean the electrode if required and can warn if the buffer has been contaminated. The electrode condition and response time are displayed and monitored on the meter's LCD. The user can program a calibration reminder using the Calibration Alarm Time Out. The HI222 also features Log-On-Demand.
