ProDSS - Product Description/Sample Copy YSI ProDSS - Digital Sampling System YSI’s ProDSS is a revolutionary handheld instrument for water quality spot-sampling and profiling in the most demanding field conditions. The ProDSS is the most advanced handheld instrument available and can measure a wide range of parameters including dissolved oxygen (optical), pH, ORP, turbidity, conductivity, temperature, depth, nitrate, chloride, ammonium and more. Digital Sampling System - Smart and Easy-to-Use The ProDSS is a digital instrument with smart sensors that store calibration information and are auto-recognized by the instrument. Any sensor can be installed in any of the 4 sensor ports, allowing for measurement of any combination of parameters. The ProDSS handheld features a menu-driven user interface and an on-board help key/function. Advanced Features and Durable Design The ProDSS features a graphic, backlit, color display and a backlit keypad for visibility and easy menu navigation in all lighting conditions. The ProDSS utilizes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. The ProDSS can be ordered with or without built-in GPS. GPS coordinates can be stored with measurement data for geo-mapping in the provided PC data management software, KorDSS. The instrument features a rugged, waterproof case (IP-67 rated) with rubber over-mold and metal, military-spec (MS) cable connectors. Customizable The ProDSS handheld, cable (cable management kit included with 10, 20, and 30 meter cables) and sensors are sold separately to provide you many options when “building” a ProDSS. The handheld features optional built-in GPS capability while the cables (up to 100 meters) have an optional depth sensor. A whole suite of accessories are also available to complete your system. Parameters: Dissolved Oxygen (Optical) Turbidity Download Data to PC or Transfer to USB Stick pH The ProDSS features a built-in micro USB On-The-Go port for connection to a PC or USB stick. ORP/Redox KorDSS software, a powerful PC data management program for the ProDSS, is included with Conductivity each instrument. The ProDSS internal memory allows for logging > 100,000 data sets, plus Specific Conductance 100 sites, 100 Data IDs and 400 GLP records. Salinity Included with ProDSS Instrument: rechargeable lithium-ion battery (pre-installed), hand Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) strap, USB cable for charging the ProDSS battery and for connection to a PC, AC charger, Resistivity cable for connection to a USB memory stick, ProDSS quick start guide, and USB memory Seawater Density stick containing KorDSS software and digital copy of the manual. Total Suspended Solids (TSS) Note: Sensors, cables, and accessories are ordered separately.
