Being different from bipolar pulse technique,a new type conductivity detection circuit system applying constant current source for ion chromatography was designed which effectively reduces the complexity of bipolar pulse technique,accurately and intelligently completes the signal amplification,collection,processing and spectrum displaying.In this article the detection principle and the hardware of the system were described and the experimental results with accurate and reliable measurements were shown.
