Hi all,

I'm blown away by what MyCodo can do! I've been looking for some time for a platform to make hydroponics monitoring and dosing easier and never found anything close to this. Thanks Kyle Gabriel for the incredible work!

I bought the AnyLeaf pH probe and a couple of generic peristaltic pumps but I'm struggling to find an EC probe. I had a look through the MyCodo supported input devices  page and it seems that only the Atlas Scientific EC probe and Xiaomi Miflora are supported EC probes.

The Atlas Scientific EC probe is a great deal pricier than the AnyLeaf pH probe and shipping to where I live (Australia) is $70! I asked the AnyLeaf guys their recommendations and they said they're researching EC probe development but haven't got anything going yet. All I can find on the Miflora probe is a little palm-sized, battery-powered, multi-probe. I need something quite robust that can stand continuous immersion. It seems custom inputs are supported if I write my own module in Python.

Does anyone have any EC probes they recommend and have working will MyCodo?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I haven't experimented much with EC myself. Water sensors are difficult to make and get right. Atlas Scientific makes quality products and although pricier, are worth the money, especially for sensitive measurements such as EC. If you happen to come across any other good EC sensors and want help creating an Input module, let me know and I'll see if I can help.

Thanks Kyle, I'll continue the hunt and let you know if I find anything decent. Otherwise I'll just go with the Atlas Scientific. Thanks for the advice!
