YSI 6600 V2 sondes are available from HydroTerra Pty Ltd for a wide range of environmental monitoring applications.  

The 6600 V2 sondes offer the most comprehensive water quality monitoring capabilities: 

  • Simultaneous measurement of conductivity (salinity), temperature, depth/ level and pH/ORP
  • Monitoring of dissolved oxygen, turbidity, chlorophyll and blue-green algae
  • Measures two of four parameters simultaneously
  • Additional calculated parameters include total dissolved solids (TDS), resistivity and specific conductance
New features such as the optical sensor design and anti-fouling wiper control in the sondes offer improved reliability during extended deployments.  

The self-cleaning optical sensors with integrated wipers remove bio-fouling and maintain high data accuracy. The field-replaceable sensors enable quick field measurements.  

Optimal power management and built-in battery compartment extend in-situ monitoring periods.  

In addition to turbidity, chlorophyll and rhodamine, YSI now offers new optical sensors for monitoring ROX Reliable Optical Dissolved Oxygen and Blue-Green Algae (BGA).  

ROX Reliable Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensors  

The ROX sensor uses lifetime luminescence detection technology to offer the most reliable oxygen sensor with low maintenance requirements. The sensor is insensitive to hydrogen sulphide interference and does not require regular membrane changes.  

Blue-Green Algae BGA Sensors  

The fluorescence-based blue-green algae sensors will facilitate monitoring of blue green algae populations where their presence is a concern. BGA sensors can provide an early warning to an algal bloom, track taste and odour-causing species in drinking water supplies, or be used in ecosystem research.  

Sensor Performance Verified  

YSI 6600 V2 sondes uses sensor technology that has been verified by the US EPA’s Environmental Technology Verification Program (ETV).  

6600 Upgrades Available  

To ensure customers have access to reliable and cost-effective water monitoring solutions, YSI offers V2 upgrades for existing 6600 V2 sondes.  

Upgrades will be available from YSI Authorised Service Centres and will include the new 6600 V2 bulkhead, an ROX Optical Dissolved Oxygen sensor and firmware/ software upgrades.  

Additionally, the sonde will be fully tested and calibrated by an experienced YSI service technician.
