The "EC" is a non SI unit defined as "microsiemens per centimeter" (µS/cm). The approximate conversion factor from EC in µS/cm to milligrams per liter is 0.6. The term EC also has alternative definitions and numerical values in other areas of science. For example EC is often expressed as "decisiemens per meter" (dS/m) for which the approximate conversion factor to milligrams per liter is 600.
