The YSI 6150 Reliable Oxygen Sensor (ROX) is a luminescent-based DO sensor that provides accurate long-term measurements in severe fouling and low oxygen environments.

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

  • Overview

    The 6-Series YSI 6150 ROX is a luminescent-based dissolved oxygen sensor that offers YSI customers a powerful tool for making long-term oxygen measurements in severe fouling and low oxygen environments. Its rugged design and large measurement range make it ideal for sampling, flow cell, and groundwater measurements.

    The ROX optical sensor uses an integrated wiping system to provide anti-fouling in the most hostile environments.

    Durable mechanical features include:

    • a non-corroding titanium wiper shaft,
    • replaceable wiper shaft seal, and
    • a switch controlled wiper parking system to prevent mis-parking.
    • easy to replace membrane with a usable life of one year

    The ROX sensing system is based on the luminescence lifetime method. This method was chosen because it offers the most stable, repeatable and sensitive method for oxygen detection, thus reducing sensor drift and prolonging deployment times.

    YSI's optical DO membrane differs from the traditional electrochemical sensor membrane, requiring fewer steps for installation and less maintenance. ROX membranes will last for one year and are made of a durable material that is unlikely to be damaged in the field. The ROX sensor eliminates stirring dependency that was required of most traditional polarographic sensors.
