M.C. Miller RE-5 Electrode

M.C. Miller offers a large selection of portable copper/copper sulfate reference electrodes. The RE-5 model is their most standard model with a flat surface ceramic plug. The flat plug allows for good performance in all soil conditions including when the soil is hard packed. The main body is built out of a Lexan tube with a side viewing window to check on the reference cell’s condition. Inside the tube, the reference cell comes with a high purity copper core rod and some initial copper/copper sulfate crystals for initial use.

The M.C. Miller RE-5 portable reference electrode is used to measure pipe to soil potential reading at the grounds surface. The ceramic plug requires even, consistent contact with the soil where the potential readings are to be made. Once the cell is placed on the ground, connected to a true RMS multimeter through the negative terminal, the positive connection can be touched to the structure to give the potential reading.  

 When ordering a RE-5 portable reference electrode, please make sure to indicate the quantity of cell’s you may require. Corrpro offers replacement copper/copper sulfate crystals for servicing the reference electrode, as well as copper sulfate anti-freeze solution for winter performance of the reference cell. The reference cell does not come with a lead to connect to a true RMS multi-meter. Corrpro offers a selection of lead assemblies for the reference cell.
