Sometimes you just want to kick up your heels, skip down the street and whistle a tune to let everyone know how happy you are! Right? OK, maybe that's just me but, at any rate, we're pretty happy over here to introduce our new laboratory instrument product line to measure pH, ORP, conductivity or BODs.
YSI has officially launched the MultiLab IDS (Intelligent Digital Sensors), a new line of laboratory instruments and smart sensors for the water and wastewater market.
According to Tim Grooms, YSI Director of Water Quality Products, “Our MultiLab IDS line has a unique multiparameter trick up its sleeve. Just one meter can measure three paramaters at a time — any three of pH, ORP, BOD, or conductivity, or even three of the same parameters. No other competitive product on the market can do that.”
The YSI MultiLab IDS line includes the MultiLab 4010‐1 (one channel), MultiLab 4010‐2 (dual channel), and the MultiLab 4010‐3 (three channel) as well as smart digital probes for optical based BOD5, pH, ORP and conductivity measurement. The product line has been engineered from the ground up for the laboratory, with an easy‐to‐use and ‐calibrate menu‐driven operation and improved data integrity and security.
Each of the instruments channels can be used for any probe. The one channel instrument offers an easy‐to‐read monochrome graphic LCD while the two‐ and three‐channel versions offer color LCD displays, another unique feature in the industry.
“Another advantage has been built into the digital sensors,” says Grooms. “As soon as they’re plugged in, the digital sensors are automatically recognized by the MultiLab IDS. That explains the IDS in the name (Intelligent Digital Sensors).”

These sensors automatically store their unique serial number and calibration data. They also digitally process the measurement signal. The sensors can be moved from instrument to instrument and maintain their calibration data and transmit this information to the new instrument.
The IDS sensors feature:
- Plug and play connectivity with each instrument
- IDS senors store their own unique ID with serial number and calibration data
- Digital sensor recognition, processing and data transfer
- Includes self-stirring BOD, pH, ORP and conductivity sensors
- BOD probe uses optical dissolved oxygen technology and includes a guarded sensor tip
When using the instrument with the YSI ProOBOD with Optical BOD probe and BOD Analyst Pro desktop software, BOD values are recorded and calculated automatically at the desktop.
