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

This reference electrode must be installed into a 600R and 600QS sondes 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.
