Stable multi-probe measures conductivity and temperature levels and calculates salinity values. Thermistor readings are used to temperature-correct other parameter measurements.

This sensor must be installed into a 6-Series sonde to function. Does not function on its own.

  • Overview


    YSI utilizes a high-precision thermistor: 2252 ohms at 25ºC (±1%) for temperature measurement. Resistance changes with temperature and the 6-Series sondes convert resistance into ºC, ºF, or K automatically. Best of all, the temperature sensor is calibration-and-maintenance-free.

    Range: -5 to 60ºC
    Resolution: 0.01ºC
    Accuracy: ±0.15ºC


    Four pure-nickel electrodes allow the YSI 6560 sensor to accurately determine the conductivity of a sample. Along with conductivity, the YSI 6-Series sonde can calculate specific conductance, salinity, resistivity and total dissolved solids.

    Range: 0 to 100 mS/cm
    Resolution: 0.001 to 0.1 mS/cm (range
    Accuracy: ±0.5% of reading plus 0.001 mS/cm
