The Quick Solution to Handheld Sampling

Combined for convenience, the YSI 650 MDS display-datalogger and the YSI 600R sonde allow you to collect 11 parameters simultaneously in real time.

Instrument only. Cables, probes/sensors, and accessories sold separately.

  • Overview

    Designed for reliable field use, the 650 MDS features a waterproof IP-67, impact-resistant case, and utilizes internal, non-volatile flash memory that prevents data loss and stores 150 data sets. The 600QS sonde is compact, submersible to 61 m (200 ft) and employs YSI's reliable sensor measurement systems. The 600QS System provides a reliable way to quickly sample fresh, brackish, sea, and polluted waters.

    Parameters available for the 600QS include:

    • Dissolved Oxygen (polarographic)
    • Temperature
    • Conductivity
    • Salinity
    • Specific Conductance
    • Resistivity
    • Medium Depth
    • pH
    • Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)
    • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)


    Feature Packed Performance

    Battery Life: With the standard alkaline battery configuration of 4 C-cells, the YSI 650 MDS will power itself and the sonde continuously for approximately 30 hours. Or, choose the rechargeable battery pack option with quick-charge feature.

    Optional GPS Interface: Designed to NMEA protocol, the YSI 650 MDS will display and log real-time GPS readings.

    Memory: The 650MDS includes the standard memory option with 150 data sets, time and date stamped, downloadable to a PC via RS-232.


    Additional Features:

    • 25 and 50 ft cable options
    • Fits down 2-inch wells
    • Optional GPS interface with 650MDS
    • RS-232 and SDI-12 communications
