A Breakthrough in Multiparameter Water Quality Sampling and Profiling

Multiparameter Water Quality Sampling and Profiling

YSI announces the release of the YSI ProDSS (Digital Sampling System), the most advanced handheld multiparameter sampling instrument we have ever offered. Not only have we answered our customer's demands for a handheld water quality instrument that can measure turbidity, but the ProDSS can also measure depth (optional) in addition to pH, ORP, optical DO (ODO), conductivity, total algae, and more with digital, smart sensor technology. YSI ProDSS Meter in Studio

The ProDSS features digital smart sensors that are automatically recognized by the instrument. Each sensor stores its serial number and calibration data, even if unplugged from the instrument.

The instrument features a built-in micro USB On-The-Go port for connection to a PC or USB stick. KorDSS software, a powerful PC data management program for the ProDSS, is included with each instrument. Data memory on the handheld is immense, allowing for >100,000 data sets to be logged.

An easy-to-read graphic, color display with menu-driven operation allows for easy navigation and quick calibration of instrument sensors. A long-life rechargeable lithium-ion battery ensures reliability in the field and minimizes waste.

There are many options when ordering a ProDSS instrument for water quality testing. You can choose cables up to 100-m with or without a depth sensor and each of the 4 sensor ports can accept any ProDSS smart sensor. The instrument also comes with optional GPS capability.

The ProDSS is a true field instrument. The titanium smart sensors can easily be replaced in the field and our durable MS (Military Spec) locking bayonet-style cable connector ensures quick cable connection. A rugged and waterproof (IP-67) rubber over-molded instrument casing provides protection from the demands of field sampling.

The ProDSS can also be used with the ODO cable for a dissolved oxygen-only instrument. GPS capabilities with the ODO probe would be ideal when measuring a large number of aquaculture ponds.

YSI is focused on providing the most reliable and cost-effective instruments for use in real-world applications. We look forward to mutual success introducing another product in the exciting new Professional Series product line.
