YSI, a Xylem brand, introduces the Pro1020. The rugged, handheld device that measures dissolved oxygen and temperature, and either pH or ORP (redox), with the fastest DO response times on the market.
“This is a smarter, faster way to get your water quality data,” says Tim Grooms, YSI director of Water Quality Products. “The Pro1020 is a tough, waterproof instrument. We’ve designed it to be extremely versatile and rugged, even in the harshest field conditions.” Users can choose between polarographic or galvanic DO technologies. As well, the Pro1020 features the fastest response times on the market: 95 percent of DO response times within eight-seconds.
The Pro1020 features user-replaceable cables and sensors, along with military spec (MS) connectors, offering instrument versatility, reduced down time, and lower overall cost of ownership. Years of sampling are ensured by the instrument’s rugged construction, including a rubber over-molded IP67 impact-resistant, waterproof case with a 3-year warranty.
The Pro1020 also features a one-meter drop test that ensures that the meter meets expected ruggedness and durability. The Pro1020 is available with a variety of cable lengths: 1-, 4-, 10-, 20- and 30-meter lengths are standard. The instrument also features smart calibration: it remembers the previous calibration values and will walk the user through the routine. It can store up to 50 data sets, eliminating the need to write data down.
The instrument’s large, backlit display and glow-in-the-dark keypad make it usable in any lighting condition, even when wearing polarized sunglasses. It can also be used in multiple languages: English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.
