Simple, accurate pH measurement in sensors designed for minimal maintenance in sampling, profiling, and long-term monitoring applications.

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

  • Overview

    YSI pH and pH/ORP sensors have been carefully designed to perform under all ionic strength conditions, from seawater with a conductivity of 53,000 μS/cm, to "average" freshwater lakes and rivers with conductivities of 200 to 1500 μS/cm, to pure mountain streams with conductivities as low as 15 μS/cm, which has historically been the most difficult medium with respect to accuracy, quick response to pH changes, and minimal flow dependence.

    6561 pH Sensor:
    The YSI 6561 pH sensor features a 'long-life' sealed gel reference, eliminating the need to refill. For high-fouling applications, the 6561FG'flat glass' sensor is available for wiped antifouling protection on the 6600EDS V2. 6565 pH/ORP Probe also available.


    • Produces very stable readings.
    • Rugged and guarded. 


    • Not wipeable; not ideal for high-fouling environments.

    Sensor is available for use on the following sondes:

    • 600XL & 600XLM and 600XL & 600XLM V2
    • 600DW & 6920DW
    • 6820 V2 & 6920 V2
    • 6600 V2 & 6600EDS V2
