Introduction
Battery use and battery life
The ProDSS uses a rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery pack as a power source. The battery comes pre-installed in
the ProDSS and does not need to be replaced until the battery charge capacity is deemed unacceptable by the user.
The battery is shipped at less than 50% full capacity and charging the battery is not required before first use.
Battery life depends on use, enabled parameters, LCD brightness, and GPS use. As with all lithium-ion batteries, battery
life will decline over time and use. This decay is typical and should be expected.
A new ProDSS battery is expected to last for the following durations (25 °C (77 °F), auto sampling, GPS on, keypad
backlight off):
• ProDSS instrument only - 48 hours
• ProDSS with fully loaded 4 port cable assembly and 25% LCD brightness - 20 hours
• ProDSS with fully loaded 4 port cable assembly and 100% (Default) LCD brightness - 14 hours
To increase battery life, enable manual sampling mode (Sampling on page 20). Manual sampling mode powers the
sensor/s on to take a measurement and then powers down to conserve battery life. Battery life may also depend on
the battery charging practices used. For maximum battery life, keep the battery 40% to 80% charged. Also, a larger
discharge (e.g. to 50%) is better than a small discharge (e.g. to 90%) between recharges.

Introduction
Charging the battery pack
A USB cable is included with the ProDSS to charge the instrument battery pack and connect the instrument to a PC.
The instrument battery pack can be charged from the AC power adapter, directly from a computer USB connection or
from an external, portable USB battery pack (sold separately, see ProDSS accessories on Page 79).
Plug the USB connector into the AC power adapter, computer USB connector or external USB battery pack, then plug
the micro USB connector into the ProDSS instrument (Figure 1).
NOTE: The ProDSS internal charge controller only allows the battery pack to be charged if the temperature is
between 0 and 45 °C (32 and 113 °F).
A
WARNING: C
harge the battery pack in an open area away from flammable materials, liquids, and surfaces. Read
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery pack safety warnings and precautions on page 80.
The ProDSS will charge faster when plugged into an AC outlet for charging rather than a PC’s USB port. For the
instrument to recognize that it is using AC power, you must start charging the ProDSS while on. After the instrument
recognizes it is being charged, it can be turned off to finish charging.
When using the AC adapter, it takes approximately 14 hours to charge the ProDSS battery when the instrument is
turned off during the charge. The amount of time required to completely charge the battery pack when the ProDSS is
initially turned on during the charge is approximately 9 hours.

Introduction
ProDSS sensor installation/removal
roDSS cable assemblies that feature user-replaceable sensors include 4 port cables with (626910 and 626911) and
P
without (626909) a built-in depth sensor. This section pertains to these cable assemblies.
Other ProDSS cable assemblies, like the ProDSS ODO/CT (627150), ProODO (626250) and ProOBOD (626400 and
626401), feature integral (i.e. built-in) sensors. Therefore, sensors on these cable assemblies cannot be replaced by the
user. A complete list of cable options can be found in the Accessories section.
NOTICE: The ProDSS bulkhead and sensor connectors are not wet-mateable. Make sure that the sensor and
bulkhead connectors are clean and dry before sensor installation.
NOTE: Sensor ports on the bulkhead (4 port cables only) are numbered (Figure 5). If multiple sensors of the
same type are installed, the sensor port number will be added to the Run screen display to clarify the
measurement value of each sensor.

Sensor installation
The ports on the ProDSS bulkhead are universal; therefore, you can install any sensor into any port.
NOTE: A conductivity/temperature sensor (626902) must be installed in a 4 port ProDSS cable for accurate
measurement of all parameters except turbidity and TSS. All sensors, including conductivity/temperature, must
be ordered separately.
1. Remove the port cover shipped with ProDSS cables. This cover fits over the bulkhead to protect the sensor
connectors from contamination and damage during shipment. This cover can be kept for long-term cable
storage.
2. Inspect the bulkhead port for contamination. If the port is dirty or wet, clean it with compressed air.
3. Apply a thin coat of o-ring lubricant to the sensor o-rings. Wipe off excess o-ring grease with a lint-free cloth.

Introduction
4. Carefully align the sensor and bulkhead connectors by inserting the sensor into the port then gently rotating the
sensor until the connectors align. Once aligned, push the sensor toward the bulkhead until the sensor seats in
the port.
5. Carefully finger-tighten the retaining nut clockwise.
NOTICE: If any resistance is felt, loosen the retaining nut completely to prevent cross-threading. Incorrect
installation may cause damage to the sensor or bulkhead that is not covered by the warranty.
6. Use the sensor installation/removal tool to tighten the retaining nut clockwise until snug, about a 1/4 to 1/2
additional turn of the retaining nut.
NOTICE: Do not over-tighten the retaining nut. Over-tightening can cause damage to the sensor or bulkhead
not covered by the warranty.
Sensor removal
To remove a sensor, insert the sensor installation/removal tool into the retaining nut, then rotate the retaining nut
counterclockwise to loosen. After the retaining nut has been completely unscrewed from the bulkhead, pull the sensor
straight out of the port and place it on a clean surface.
NOTICE: Install a port plug if not reinstalling a sensor in the exposed port. Exposure to water can cause
damage or corrosion to the bulkhead connectors not covered by the warranty.
Port plugs
Figure 5 Sensor port plugs and port numbering (4 port cables)
To protect the bulkhead connectors from damage, install a port plug into any port without an installed sensor. Port
plugs and a tube of o-ring lubricant are included in the maintenance kit that ships with all 4 port ProDSS cables. Refer
to the Accessories section if an additional maintenance kit is needed.
NOTICE: Do not submerge the bulkhead without a sensor or port plug installed in all ports.
Installation
1. Apply a thin coat of o-ring lubricant to the o-rings on the plug port.
2. Remove any excess lubricant from the o-rings and port plug with a lint-free cloth.
3. Insert the port plug into the empty port and press until firmly seated.
4. Finger-tighten the port plug clockwise to install. If necessary, use the sensor installation tool to make sure that
the plug is fully seated into the port.
NOTICE: The o-rings will not be visible if a port plug is correctly installed. Do not over-tighten the port plug.
Over-tightening can cause damage to the port plug or bulkhead not covered by the warranty.

pairs of turbidity and TSS measurements can be used.
NOTE: For highest accuracy, obtain 6 value pairs.
NOTE: Correlation data must be collected for each unique
sampling site, as this correlation is site-specific.
In KorDSS, enter the field-obtained turbidity measurements and the
corresponding lab-obtained TSS measurements. Coefficients can then
calculated with KorDSS and sent to the sensor.
NOTE: Although correlation coefficients can be entered directly
into the ProDSS (Figure 25), only KorDSS can calculate the
coefficients.

Setup Conductivity
→ Setup → Conductivity
Figure 27 Setup Conductivity
Temp Ref (Temperature reference): Reference temperature used to
calculate temperature compensated specific conductance. All specific
conductance values are compensated to the Temp Ref temperature. The
default value is 25 °C (77 °C) (Figure 27). Enter a new value between
15.00 °C (59 °F) and 25.00 °C (77 °F).
%/°C (Percent per degree Celsius): Temperature coefficient used to
calculate temperature compensated specific conductance. The default is
1.91% based on KCl standards. Enter a new value between 0 and 4%.
TDS Constant: Multiplier used to calculate an estimated Total Dissolved
Solids (TDS) value from conductivity. The multiplier is used to convert
specific conductance in mS/cm to TDS in g/L. The default value is 0.65.
Enter a new value between 0 and 0.99.
This multiplier is highly dependent on the nature of the ionic species
present in the water sample. To be assured of moderate accuracy for
the conversion, you must determine a multiplier for the water at your
sampling site. Use the following procedure to determine the multiplier
for a specific sample:
1. Determine the specific conductance of a water sample from the
site.
2. Filter a portion of water from the site.
3. Carefully measure a volume of the filtered water. Completely
evaporate to yield a dry solid.
4. Accurately weight the remaining solid.
5. Divide the weight of the solid (in grams) by the volume of water
used (in liters) to yield the TDS value in g/L for the site.
6. Divide the TDS value in g/L by the specific conductance of the
water in mS/cm to yield the conversion multiplier.
NOTE: Make sure to use the correct units.
NOTE: If the nature of the ionic species at the site changes
between sampling studies, the TDS values will be in
error. TDS cannot be calculated accurately from specific
conductance unless the make-up of the chemical species in
the water remains constant.

Operation
Setup Depth
→ Setup → Depth
For ProDSS bulkheads with the depth sensor:
Figure 28 Setup Depth
The ProDSS cable assemblies with a depth sensor in the bulkhead can
measure virtual vented depth. The virtual vented depth measurement
allows for real time compensation for atmospheric pressure using the
instrument’s barometer.
Depth offset: Depth offset can be used if referencing water elevation
against a known datum. If a depth offset is entered (in meters), the output
value will shift by the value of the offset (Figure 28).
Altitude/Latitude: To compensate for atmospheric pressure based on
elevation and gravitational pull, enter the local altitude in meters relative
to sea level and latitude in degrees where the ProDSS is sampling.
Latitude effect: Varying latitudes cause a 200 mm change in depth from
equator to pole.
Altitude effect: Varying altitudes cause approximately 90 mm change
from sea level to 8000 m. A 100 m change causes 1.08 mm of change to
the readings.
Sensor Display
→ Display (Figure 29)
The Sensor display menu determines the measurements that are
shown on the Run screen (Figure 9). The Run screen will only show
measurements for sensors that are attached to the cable bulkhead.
If more measurements are selected than can be displayed on one screen,
a scroll bar will be shown. Use the and keys to scroll through the
measurements.
Figure 29 Sensor Display
NOTE: For depth profiling, enable Vertical Position under Depth
Display to view the real-time position of the depth sensor
in the water column. This is helpful in profiling applications
to ensure the depth sensor is lowered to the desired depth
without waiting for the depth data to stabilize.

Auto Stable indicates when a measurement is stable. Sensors with Auto
A
Stable enabled will have S flash beside the measurement on the Run
screen.
A
S
will flash green when the measurement is stable.
Select a sensor to enable or disable Auto Stable. Set the stability
threshold parameters (Figure 30).
The Auto Stable stability threshold can be set by percent of measurement
or in the units of measurement selected in the Sensor Display menu.
Figure 30 Auto Stable
Enter the stability value, then select Use Percent or Use Meas. Units
(Figure 31).
This threshold is used to compare the last reading with the previous. The
smaller the number entered in % or units, the longer it will take for the
instrument to reach the auto stable criteria.
Example: For temperature in °C, if unit threshold is set to 0.2 and the

A
temperature reading changes by more than 0.2 degrees, S will
continue to be red until the reading does not change by more
than 0.2 °C over the defined sample period and sample count.
Hold All Readings: After all sensors have reached their stability criteria,
the measurements will be held or ‘locked’ on the display. If disabled, the
sensor measurements will continue to change in real time.
Audio Enabled: An audio alert will sound when stability is reached.
Continuous Mode: The ProDSS will continuously check sensor values
against the stability criteria even after the sample period and sample
count have been met.
Log Samples: Logs the sample/s defined by the Sample Period to

Operation
Averaging
→ Averaging (Figure 32)
Figure 32 Averaging
The averaging mode determines how the ProDSS will filter data. A
smaller time frame for the rolling average window allows changes in
the sensor’s measurements to be more quickly observed, while a larger
rolling window provides more stable measurement readings and a
smooth result. Each averaging mode will decrease the time span of the
rolling window if a large change in the sensor measurement is detected,
allowing the ProDSS to adapt when an event occurs.
The Default mode provides optimum averaging for all sensors. This
mode has up to 40 seconds of averaging on the sensors.
In Accelerated mode, changes in sensor measurements are more
quickly observed than default (5-10 seconds of averaging). This mode is
recommended when the sensors are moving through the water, such as
profiling studies and most spot sampling applications.
NOTE: For profiling applications, enable Vertical Position under
Depth Display to view unfiltered depth measurements. This
helps to ensure the depth sensor is lowered to the desired
depth without waiting for the averaged measurement.
In Rapid mode, sensor response is very fast (2-3 seconds of averaging),
but the instrument will never settle on a single steady number. This mode
is recommended when the sensors are moving quickly through the water,
such as rapid profiling and towed applications.
Salinity
→ Salinity
Salinity is determined by calculations derived from the conductivity and
temperature sensors.
When a conductivity sensor is installed, the instrument will automatically
use the salinity measurement for DO and “As Measured” will be
displayed. If no conductivity sensor is installed (e.g. ProODO cable
assembly used), the salinity value will be user-selectable.
Because salinity is an important factor in determining dissolved oxygen,
YSI does not recommend calibrating or taking dissolved oxygen
measurements without conductivity and temperature sensors.

1. Create site and Data ID lists for logged data (if applicable) (Logging on page 19).
2. Set the logging method (single or interval) (Logging on page 19).
3. Set the Auto Stable parameters (if applicable) (Auto Stable on page 26).
4. Verify that the sensors and/or port plugs are correctly installed in all bulkhead ports (page 9).
5. Install the sensor guard (page 11).
6. Insert the sensors into the sample.
NOTE: Make sure to submerge the sensors completely. If using a depth sensor, submerge to where the cable
assembly attaches to the bulkhead.
7. Move the bulkhead in the sample to release any air bubbles and to provide a fresh sample to the sensors.
8. Wait for the sensor/s to stabilize in the sample.

Calibration
ProDSS sensors (except temperature) require periodic calibration to maintain accurate measurements. Calibration
procedures follow the same basic steps with variations for specific parameters.
Before calibration
• E
nter GLP user-defined data if applicable to user requirements (User ID, Probe ID, User Field #1/2)
(GLP Options on page 17).
• Set up sensor options, settings, and coefficients as applicable (Sensor menu beginning on page 22).
NOTICE: Install a gray port plug in all exposed ports. Exposure to water can cause damage or corrosion to the
bulkhead connectors not covered by the warranty.
Calibration setup (pH, ORP, ISE, conductivity, turbidity)
NOTE: Make sure the calibration cup, sensor guard, and all sensors are clean.
NOTE: If using the calibration cup, make sure to install the sensor guard before placing the sensors into the
calibration cup.
NOTE: The sensor guard and calibration cup should be used for the turbidity and DO calibration. All other
calibrations can be performed in other laboratory glassware.
1. Install a clean, dry sensor (Figure 4 on page 9) and sensor guard (Figure 6 on page 11) onto the bulkhead.
NOTICE: Install a gray port plug in any exposed port on 4 port ProDSS cable assemblies. All sensor ports must
have either a sensor or port plug installed.
2. Fill the calibration cup with a moderate amount of water and tighten the calibration cup onto the bulkhead. Use
the water to rinse the cup and the sensor to be calibrated. Discard the rinse.
3. Thoroughly rinse the calibration cup with a small amount of the calibration standard for the sensor to be
calibrated. Discard the standard.
4. For 4 port cable assemblies, refill the calibration cup with fresh calibration standard to approximately the first
line for pH, ORP, and turbidity calibration. Fill to the second line for conductivity calibration (Figure 43 on page
34). If using the ODO/CT cable assembly and calibrating conductivity, ensure the vent holes at the top of the
sensor are completely immersed and the solution level is at least 1/2 inch higher than these top vent holes
(Figure 46 on page 36). A cylinder is included with ODO/CT cable assemblies for the purpose of calibrating
conductivity.
NOTE: Volumes will vary. Make sure the temperature sensor and the sensor to be calibrated are submerged in
calibration solution, except when performing a DO% saturation calibration.
NOTE: Be careful to avoid cross-contamination with other standards.
NOTE: These rinsing recommendations are only suggested guidelines for highest data accuracy. Make sure to
follow your organization Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for instrument calibration and operation.
5. Immerse the sensor(s) in the standard and tighten the calibration cup onto the bulkhead.
6. Calibrate the sensor(s).
Alternately, pH, ORP, and conductivity calibrations can be completed in a beaker or other container using the same
basic procedure described above. Make sure that the temperature sensor and the sensor to be calibrated are
completely submerged. When submerging the conductivity sensor, make sure that the calibration solution covers the
vent holes on the conductivity sensor.

Calibration
Conductivity
A conductivity/temperature sensor must be installed on the bulkhead (Figure 4 on page 9) for accurate temperature
compensation and measurements of all parameters except turbidity and TSS. Temperature calibration is not available
or required for accurate temperature measurements.
The conductivity/temperature sensor can measure and calculate conductivity, specific conductance (temperature
compensated conductivity), salinity, non-linear function (nLF) conductivity, TDS, resistivity, and density. Calibration
is only available for specific conductance, conductivity, and salinity. Calibrating one of these options automatically
calibrates the other conductivity/temperature parameters listed above. For both ease of use and accuracy, YSI
recommends calibrating specific conductance.
Conductivity calibration
1. If necessary, clean the conductivity cell with the supplied soft
brush. See Conductivity/temperature sensor maintenance on
page 56.
2. Perform the Calibration setup (pH, ORP, ISE, conductivity, turbidity)
on page 33.
3. Place the correct amount of conductivity standard into a clean and
dry or pre-rinsed calibration cup.
NOTE: Select the appropriate calibration standard for the
conductivity of the sampling environment. Standards
greater than 1 mS/cm (1000 μs/cm) are recommended for
the greatest stability. For fresh water applications, calibrate
to 1,000 or 10,000 μS. For salt water applications, calibrate
to 50,000 μS.
Figure 45 Calibrate specific
conductance
4. Carefully immerse the sensors into the solution. Make sure the
solution is above the vent holes on the side of the conductivity
sensor. If using the ODO/CT assembly, ensure the vent holes at
the top of the sensor are completely immersed and the solution
level is at least 1/2 inch higher than these top vent holes (Figure
46).
5. Gently rotate and/or move the sensor up and down to remove any
bubbles from the conductivity cell. Allow at least one minute for
temperature equilibration before proceeding.
6. Push the Cal key, select Conductivity, then select Specific
Conductance.
NOTE: Calibrating any conductivity calibration option will
automatically calibrate the other options. Specific
conductance is recommended for both ease of use and
accuracy.
7. Select Calibration value then enter the calibration value of the
standard used. Note the measurement units the instrument is
reporting and calibrating and be sure to enter in the correct
calibration value for the units being used. For example, 10,000 μS
= 10 mS. Make sure that the units are correct and match the units
displayed on the handheld.
8. Observe the actual measurement readings for stability (white line
on graph shows no significant change for 40 seconds), then select
Accept Calibration (Figure 45). “Calibration successful!” will be
displayed in the message area.
35
Calibration
NOTE: If the data is not stabilized after 40 seconds, gently rotate the sensor or remove/reinstall the calibration
cup to make sure that no air bubbles are in the conductivity cell.
NOTE: If the actual measurement data is about 1/2 if the expected calibration value, the conductivity sensor is
not completely submerged. Add more calibration standard to the calibration cup.
NOTE: If you get calibration error messages, check for proper sensor immersion, verify the calibration solutions is
fresh, the correct value has been entered into the ProDSS, and/or try cleaning the sensor.
9. Rinse the bulkhead and sensors in clean water then dry.

Barometer
The barometer is factory calibrated and should rarely need to be recalibrated. The barometer is used for DO
calibration, %Local measurements, and for virtual depth measurements. Verify that the barometer is accurately reading
“true” barometric pressure and recalibrate as necessary.
Laboratory barometer readings are usually “true” (uncorrected) values of air pressure and can be used “as is” for
barometer calibration. Weather service readings are usually not “true”, i.e. they are corrected to sea level and cannot be
used until they are “uncorrected”. Use this approximate formula:
True BP in mmHg=[Corrected BP in mmHg] - [2.5* (Local altitude in ft. above sea level/100)]
Example:
Corrected BP = 759 mmHg
Local altitude above sea level = 978 ft
True BP = 759 mmHg - [2.5*(978ft/100)] = 734.55 mmHg
Barometer calibration
1. Push the
Cal
key, then select Barometer.

ODO calibration requires the current “true” barometric pressure. Make sure that the barometer is reading accurately
and recalibrate the barometer as necessary.
ODO% and ODO% local - water saturated air calibration
NOTE: This method calibrates the instrument’s DO% measurement
or DO% Local measurement if DO% local is enabled in the
sensor setup menu.
NOTE: Calibrating in DO% or DO% local automatically calibrates
the mg/L and ppm measurement. There is no reason
to calibrate both parameters. For both ease of use and
accuracy, we recommend that you calibrate DO% or DO%
Local and not mg/L.
1. Place a small amount of clean water (1/8 inch) into the calibration
cup.
2. Make sure there are no water droplets on the ODO sensor cap or
temperature sensor.
3. Attach the sensor guard to the bulkhead and carefully place
the guard/sensor into the calibration cup. Partially tighten the
calibration cup to the bulkhead.

pH calibration 1-point
NOTE: If performing a 1-point calibration, use buffer 7 (6.86) as
your calibration point for highest accuracy.
NOTE: Observe the pH mV readings during calibration to
understand the condition and response of the pH sensor.
In buffer 7, pH mVs should be between -50 and +50. In
buffer 4, the mVs should be a +165 to 185 away from the
pH 7 mV value. In buffer 10, the mVs should be a -165 to

NOTE: This calibration option is available only if your bulkhead is equipped with a depth sensor. The depth
sensor is located where the cable connects to the bulkhead (Figure 60 on page 54).
For the calibration, make sure that the depth sensor is clean and in air, not immersed in any solution. For highest
accuracy, keep the bulkhead still and in one position while calibrating.
NOTE: Cables 10 m and longer are supplied with a weight that can be attached to the sensor guard for sampling
at water depths 10 m and greater.
Depth calibration
1. If applicable, enter the depth offset, altitude, and latitude (Figure
28 Setup Depth on page 25).
NOTE: Depth offset allows you to set the depth measurement
to something other than zero. If the depth offset is used,
the depth measurement will be adjusted by the offset
after calibration. Enter the altitude and latitude of your
sampling location to increase the accuracy of your depth
measurement.
2. Push the
Cal
key, then select Depth.
3. Observe the actual measurement readings for stability (white line
on graph shows no significant change for 40 seconds), then select
Accept Calibration (Figure 54). “Calibration successful!” will be

Calibration
Turbidity
Before performing the calibration, review “Calibration setup (pH, ORP, ISE, conductivity, turbidity)” on page 33.
For proper calibration, you must use standards that have been prepared according to details in Standard Methods for
the Treatment of Water and Wastewater (Section 2130 B).
Acceptable standards include:
• A
MCO-AEPA standards prepared specifically for the ProDSS turbidity sensor manufactured by YSI (YSI turbidity
standards)
• Formazin prepared according to Standard Methods, especially for calibration points greater than 1010
• Dilutions of 4000 FNU (NTU) formazin concentrate purchased from Hach
• Hach StablCal™ standards in various FNU (NTU) denominations
The use of standards other than those mentioned above will result in calibration errors and inaccurate field readings.
It is important to use the same type of standard for all calibration points. (i.e. do not mix formazine and AMCO-AEPA
standard for different points in a multi-point calibration).
Calibration limits
Because of the non-linear response of the turbidity sensor, calibration ranges may be limited. A 1-, 2- or 3-point
calibration can be completed using the following limits:
1st calibration point
2nd calibration point
3rd calibration point
0-1 FNU (NTU)
5-200 FNU (NTU)
400-4200 FNU (NTU)
Calibration standards
The following standards are available for the ProDSS turbidity sensor:
42
608000
0 (all turbidity sensors); 1 gallon
607200
12.4 FNU (NTU) (ProDSS); 1 gallon
607300

Calibration
ISEs: Ammonium, Nitrate, & Chloride
Before performing the calibration, review Calibration setup (pH, ORP, ISE, conductivity, turbidity) on page 33.
The ISE sensors can be calibrated to one, two or three points. A 2-point calibration without chilling a third calibration
solution is extremely accurate and is the preferred method. However, if there is a large temperature variation during
sampling, a chilled third calibration point is recommended.
Higher calibration accuracy can be obtained if the standards used have a least one order of magnitude difference
between them. For example, 1 mg/L and 10 mg/L or 10 mg/L and 100 mg/L.
mV information for the ISE calibration
Ammonium mV values
• NH4 1 mg/L = 0 mV +/- 20 mV (new sensor only)
• NH4 100 mg/L = 90 to 130 mV > 1 mg/L mV value
• The mV span between 1 mg/L and 100 mg/L values should be ≈ 90 to 130 mV. The slope should be 45 to 65 mV
per decade.
Nitrate mV values
• NO3 1 mg/L = 200 mV +/- 20 mV (new sensor only)
• NO3 100 mg/L = 90 to 130 mV < 1 mg/L mV value
• The mV span between 1 mg/L and 100 mg/L values should be ≈ 90 to 130 mV. The slope should be -45 to -65 mV
per decade.
Chlroide mV values
• Cl 10 mg/L = 225 mV +/- 20 mV (new sensor only)
• Cl 1,000 mg/L = 80 to 130 mV < 10 mg/L mV value
• The mV span between 10 mg/L and 1000 mg/L values should be ≈ 80 to 130 mV. The slope should be -40 to -65
mV per decade.

Calibration
Chilled third calibration point
The 3-point calibration method assures maximum accuracy when the temperature of the media to be monitored
cannot be anticipated. If you must perform a chilled 3-point calibration, the following procedure requires one portion
of the high concentration calibration solution and two portions of the low concentration calibration solution.
The high concentration solution and one of the low concentration solutions should be at ambient temperature. The
other low concentration solution should be chilled to less than 10 °C (50 °F) to prior calibration point.
See ISE calibration 3-point on page 45.
1. When “Ready for cal point 3” is displayed in the message area during ISE calibration, place the proper amount
of chilled 1 mg/L standard (10 mg/L for the chloride) into a clean, dry or pre-rinsed calibration cup.
2. Carefully immerse the sensor into the solution. Allow for temperature equilibration. If necessary, select
Calibration value to manually enter the standard #3 value.

Dissolved oxygen sensor
ODO sensor caps are warranted for 1 year but have a typical working life of 18 to 24 months. The ODO Extended
Warranty Sensor Cap (627180) that comes pre-installed on ODO/CT cable assemblies features a 2 year warranty.
As the ODO sensor caps ages, large scratches in the paint/dye layer and changes in the dye layer can reduce
measurement stability and response time.
Periodically inspect the sensor cap for damage and large scratches in the paint/dye layer. Replace the cap when
readings become unstable and cleaning the cap and DO recalibration do not remedy the symptoms.
Cleaning the sensor cap
The sensor cap should be kept clean since some types of fouling may consume oxygen which could affect the
dissolved oxygen measurements. To clean the sensor cap, gently wipe away any fouling with a lens cleaning tissue that
has been moistened with water.
NOTICE: Do not use organic solvents to clean the sensor cap. Using an organic solvent to clean the sensor cap
may cause permanent damage to the cap. For example, alcohol will dissolve the outer paint layer and
other organic solvents will likely dissolve the dye in the cap.
ODO sensor cap replacement
The sensor cap should be replaced about once per year for those with a 1 year warranty, but the cap may last longer. It
should also be replaced if it is cracked or damaged. The instruction sheet shipped with the replacement ODO sensor
cap includes the calibration coefficients specific to your sensor cap.
The instructions for replacing the sensor cap on ProDSS ODO sensors (626900) are different than the instructions
for integral (i.e. built-in) ODO sensors on ODO/CT (627150) and ProODO (626250) cable assemblies, so ensure the
correct directions are being followed when replacing the sensor cap.
NOTE: Make sure to save the ODO sensor cap instruction sheet in case you need to reload the calibration
coefficients.
NOTE: The replacement ODO sensor cap is shipped in a humidified container and the package should not be
opened until immediately before sensor cap replacement.
Once the sensor cap has been installed on the ODO sensor, it is important to keep the sensor in a 100% humid
environment. If the sensor dries out, refer to the rehydration procedure (ODO sensor rehydration on page 60).

Sensor cap replacement - Built-in ODO sensors on ODO/CT and ProODO cables
1. Remove the old sensor cap assembly from the probe by grasping the probe body with one hand and rotating
the sensor cap counterclockwise until it is completely free. Do not use any tools for this procedure.
2. Inspect the o-ring on the probe for damage. If there is any indication of damage, carefully remove the o-ring
and replace it with the new o-ring included with the replacement sensor cap. Do not use any tools to remove
the o-ring.
3. Ensure the o-ring installed on the probe is clean. If necessary, wipe clean with a lint free cloth or replace the
o-ring as described in the previous step.
4. Locate the o-ring lubricant included with the new sensor cap. Apply a thin coat of o-ring lubricant to the
installed o-ring. After application, there should be a thin coat of o-ring lubricant on the o-ring only. Remove any
excess o-ring lubricant from the o-ring and/or probe with a lens cleaning tissue.
5. Remove the new sensor cap from its hydrated container and dry the inside cavity of the sensor cap with lens
cleaning tissue. Make sure the cavity is completely dry before proceeding with the installation. Next, clean the
clear surface of the sensor on the end of the probe with lens cleaning tissue.
6. Using clockwise motion, thread the new sensor cap onto the probe assembly until it is finger-tight. The o-ring
should be compressed between the sensor cap and probe. Do not over-tighten the sensor cap and do not use
any tools for the installation process.
7. After installing the new sensor cap, store the sensor in either water or in humidified air in the calibration sleeve.

particular sensor cap.
Follow the procedures below to enter the new calibration coefficients into the instrument.
1. Push the Probe
key to access the Sensor menu, then select Setup, then ODO.
2. Select Sensor Cap Coefficients.
3. Highlight each coefficient in turn (K1 through KC) and use the numeric entry screen to enter the corresponding
new coefficient from the Calibration Code Label. Push the
next K selection.
ENTER
key after each entry and then proceed to the
4. After all the new coefficients have been entered, select Update Sensor Cap Coefficients.
5. A message will appear warning that you will be overwriting the current sensor cap coefficients and you should
confirm that you wish to carry out this action. Select Yes to confirm the new coefficients.
After updating the Coefficients, the Serial # in the Sensor Cap menu will be updated automatically based on your
entries. If errors are made in entering the Sensor Cap Coefficients, the instrument will block the update and an error
message will appear on the display.
If you see this error message, re-enter the coefficients and check them carefully for correct transcription from the
Calibration Code Label prior to selecting Update Sensor Cap Coefficients. If you receive an error message after several

Maintenance and storage
ODO sensor rehydration
To prevent sensor drift, always store the ODO sensor in a wet or
water-saturated air environment. If the ODO sensor has accidentally
been left dry for longer than 8 hours, it must be rehydrated.
If rehydration is necessary, soak the ODO sensor cap in warm (room
temperature) tap water for approximately 24 hours. After the soak,
calibrate the sensor (Figure 68).
Figure 68 ODO rehydration
ODO sensor short-term storage (less than 4 weeks)
When in regular field use, the ODO sensor should remain installed on
the bulkhead. Place approximately 0.5 in (1 cm) of any water (tap or
environmental) in the calibration cup (Figure 69).
Install the calibration cup onto the bulkhead and firmly tighten to prevent
evaporation.
Figure 69 ODO short-term storage
ODO sensor long-term storage
For ProDSS 4 port cable assemblies, the ODO sensor can be left on the
bulkhead or removed for long-term storage (Figure 70).
Installed on bulkhead
Fill the calibration cup with clean water (use distilled or deionized water if
a pH sensor is not installed). Submerge the sensor in the calibration cup
then firmly tighten to prevent evaporation.
Removed from bulkhead
Remove the sensor from the bulkhead (Sensor removal on page 10).
Figure 70 ODO long-term storage
Method 1: Cover the sensor connector end with the plastic storage cap.

Maintenance and storage
pH - pH/ORP sensors
NOTE: p
H and pH/ORP sensors require periodic maintenance to clear contamination from the sensing elements.
These contaminants can slow sensor response time. Clean the sensors when deposits, bio-fouling or
other contamination appears on the glass or when the sensor response time is noticeably slow.
NOTICE: Do not physically scrub or swab the glass bulb. The bulbs are fragile and will break if pressed with
sufficient force. pH - pH/ORP sensor maintenance
1. Remove the sensor from the bulkhead and soak for 10 to 15 minutes in a mild solution of clean water and dish soap
(Figure 71).
2. Rinse the sensor with clean tap water and inspect.
3. If contaminants are removed, attach the sensor to the bulkhead
and test the response time (ProDSS sensor installation/removal on
page 9).
OR
If contaminants remain or response time does not improve,
continue to the hydrochloric acid (HCl) soak in step 4.
1 M HCl
4. Soak the sensor for 30 to 60 minutes in one molar (1 M) HCl.
NOTE: HCl reagent can be purchased from most chemical or
laboratory distributors. If HCl is not available, soak in white
vinegar.

Maintenance and storage
ISE sensors
Do not let the ISE sensor reference electrode junctions dry out. Clean the sensors when deposits, bio-fouling or other
contamination appears on the membrane.
Ammonium and nitrate sensor maintenance
1. Carefully clean the ammonium or nitrate sensor by rinsing with
DI water followed by soaking in the high standard calibration
solution (Figure 74).
2. Carefully dab the sensor dry with a clean, lint-free cloth.
NOTICE: The ion-selective membranes are very fragile. Do not
use coarse material (e.g. paper towels) to clean the
membranes or permanent damage to the sensor can
occur. The only exception is fine emery cloth on the
chloride sensor.
Figure 74 A

Maintenance and storage
ProDSS sensor module replacement
ProDSS pH, pH/ORP, ammonium, chloride and nitrate sensors feature replaceable sensor modules. These modules can
be replaced by the user as needed. Typical working life of a pH or pH/ORP sensor module is 18 to 24 months. Typical
working life of ammonium, chloride and nitrate sensor modules is 4 to 8 months.
Perform the pH - pH/ORP and ISE sensor module replacement in a clean, dry laboratory environment.
Module replacement
1. Peel off and discard the sticker that covers the junction of the sensor body and the module (Figure 78).
2. With a small, flat-blade screwdriver, carefully remove the small
rubber plug from the gap in the hard plastic ring at the base of
the sensor module.
3. Using two fingers, squeeze the sensor module’s hard plastic ring
so that it compresses the gap left by the rubber plug.
4. Steadily pull the sensor module straight from the sensor body,
rocking slightly if necessary.
NOTICE: The o-ring is unusable after removal from the sensor
body. Do not reinstall the removed sensor module or
o-ring after removal. Dispose of the module according
to you organization’s guidelines or return it to YSI for
recycling (Service information on page 82). 5. Inspect the sensor connector port for debris or moisture.
If detected, remove it with lint-free cloth or a light blast of
compressed air.
6. Visually inspect the two new o-rings for nicks, tears, contaminants
or particles. Discard damaged o-rings.
7. Without twisting, carefully install the new o-rings over the threads
and into the o-ring grooves.
8. Apply a thin coat of o-ring lubricant to the o-rings only. Wipe any
excess from the threads and sensor module.
NOTICE: If a sensor module is removed for any reason, the
o-rings must be replaced.
9. Align the prongs on the base of the sensor module with the slots
in the sensor body. The sensor module is keyed to insert in only
one orientation.
10.Push the sensor module firmly into position until it clicks. Wipe any
excess o-ring lubricant from the assembled components.
11.Wrap the junction of the sensor module and sensor body with the
new sticker included in the sensor module kit. The sticker helps
keep the sensor module junction clean and retain the rubber plug
throughout deployment.

Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery pack safety warnings and precautions
A
CAUTION: F
ailure to follow the safety warnings and precautions can result in fire, personal injury and/or
equipment damage not covered under warranty.
A
CAUTION: If the internal battery fluid comes into contact with skin, wash the affected area(s) with soap and
water immediately. If it comes into contact with your eye(s), flush them with generous amounts of
water for 15 minutes and seek immediate medical attention.
A
CAUTION: Always keep batteries away from children.
A
WARNING: In the unlikely event a lithium-ion battery catches fire, DO NOT attempt to put the fire out with water,
use a Class A, B or C fire extinguisher.
Do:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Store the battery pack in a cool, dry, ventilated area.
Store the battery pack in a non-conductive and fireproof container.
Store the battery pack at approximately 50% of the capacity.
Disconnect the battery pack when not in use and for long-term storage.
Follow applicable laws and regulations for transporting and shipping of batteries.
Immediately discontinue use of the battery pack if, while using, charging or storing the battery pack:
• Emits an unusual smell
• Feel hot
• Changes color
• Changes shape
• Appears abnormal in any other way.
Battery pack general precautions:
• DO NOT put the battery in fire or heat the battery.
• DO NOT connect the positive and the negative terminal of the battery to each other with any metal object
(e.g. wire).
• DO NOT carry or store the battery pack with neckaces, hairpins or other metal objects.
• DO NOT carry or store the battery pack with hazardous or combustible materials.
• DO NOT pierce the battery pack with nails, strike with a hammer, step on or otherwise subject the battery pack to
strong impacts or shocks.
• DO NOT solder directly onto the battery pack.
• DO NOT expose the battery pack to water or salt water or allow it to get wet.
isassemble or modify the battery pack. The battery contains safety and protection devices that, if
• DO NOT d
damaged, can cause the battery to generate heat, rupture or ignite.
• DO NOT place the battery pack on or near fires, stoves or other high-temperature locations.
• DO NOT p
lace the battery pack in direct sunlight or extreme temperatures for extended periods of time or store
the battery pack inside cars in hot weather. Doing so may cause the battery pack to generate heat,
rupture or ignite. Using the battery pack in this manner may also result in a loss of performance and a
shortened life expectancy.
• DO NOT place the battery pack in microwave ovens, high-pressure containers or on induction cookware.

Safety and support
Charging/discharging/handling the battery pack
A
WARNING: Failure to follow the battery pack charging/discharging instructions can cause the battery to become
hot, rupture or ignite and cause serious injury and/or equipment damage.
A
WARNING: Only charge the battery using charging devices designed specifically for the ProDSS by YSI. Use of
unapproved chargers can result in battery failure and potentially serious injury to the user.
If at any time the battery pack becomes damaged, hot or begins to balloon or swell, discontinue charging (or
discharging) immediately. Quickly and safely disconnect the charger. Then place the battery pack and/or charger in a
safe, open area way from flammable materials. After one hour of observation, remove the battery pack from service.
DO NOT continue to handle, attempt to use or ship the battery.
Damaged or swollen batteries can be unstable and very hot. DO NOT touch batteries until they have cooled. In the
event of a fire use a Class A, B, or C fire extinguisher. DO NOT use water.
• DO NOT attach the battery pack to a power supply plug or directly to a car’s cigarette lighter.
• DO NOT place the battery pack in or near fire or into direct extended exposure to sunlight. When the battery
pack becomes hot, the built-in safety equipment is activated, preventing the battery pack from charging
further. Heating the battery pack can destroy the safety equipment and cause additional heating,
breaking or ignition.
• DO NOT leave the battery pack unattended while charging.
NOTICE: The ambient temperature range over which the battery pack can be discharged is -20°C to 60°C
(-4°F to 140°F). Use of the battery pack outside of this temperature range may damage the
performance of the battery pack or may reduce its life expectancy.
• DO NOT discharge the battery pack using any device except for the ProDSS handheld. When the battery pack is
used in other devices it may damage the performance of the battery or reduce its life expectancy. Use of
a non-approved device to discharge the battery pack can cause an abnormal current to flow, resulting in
the battery pack to become hot, rupture or ignite and cause serious injury.
• DO NOT leave the battery pack unattended while discharging.
Battery Disposal
When the battery pack is worn out, insulate the terminals with adhesive tape or similar materials before disposal.
Dispose of the battery pack in the manner required by your city, county, state or country. For details on recycling
