each measurement to calculate a specific conductance value compensated to a
user selected reference temperature, see below. Additionally, the user can select
the temperature coefficient from 0% to 4%.
Using the Pro30’s default reference temperature and temperature coefficient (25
°C and 1.91%), the calculation is carried out as follows:
Specific Conductance (25°C) = Conductivity of sample
1 + 0.0191 * (T - 25)
T = Temperature of the sample in °C
Conductivity Auto Stable (Cond. Auto Stable)
Auto Stable utilizes preset values to indicate when a reading is stable. The preset
values are adjustable in the System Setup menu. The user can input a % change
in readings (0.0 to 1.9) over ‘x’ amount of time in seconds (3-19).
Highlight Cond. Auto Stable, then press enter to open the submenu.

field, then press enter to make the highlighted field adjustable. Use the up or
down arrow keys to adjust the selected value, then press enter to confirm changes.
Once you have confirmed any changes, highlight the ESC-Exit box along the
bottom of the display and press enter to close the Auto Stable submenu.
To disable Auto Stable, set the % Change input to 0.0.
When Auto Stable is enabled, an AS symbol will display next to the reading
on the Run screen and blink during stabilization. When the dissolved oxygen
and/or conductivity reading stabilizes based on the Auto Stable settings, the
AS symbol will display steadily and the instrument will beep twice if Audio
is turned on.
Specific Conductance
The conductivity of a sample is highly dependent on temperature, varying as
much as 3% for each change of one degree Celsius (temperature coefficient =
3%/°C). In addition, the temperature coefficient itself varies with the nature of
the ionic species present in the sample. Therefore, it is useful to compensate for
this temperature dependence in order to quickly compare conductivity readings
taken at different temperatures.
The Pro30 can display non-temperature compensated conductivity as well as
temperature compensated Specific Conductance. If Specific Conductance is
selected, the Pro30 uses the temperature and conductivity values associated with

Specific Conductance Reference
Temperature (SPC Ref. Temp.)
SPC Ref. Temp. (Specific Conductance Reference Temperature) is the reference
temperature used to calculate Specific Conductance. The reference temperature
range is 15 and 25 °C. The default value is 25 °C.
To change the reference temperature, highlight SPC Ref. Temp. and press enter
to open the submenu. With the reference temperature highlighted, press enter
to make the field adjustable. Next, use the up or down arrow key to increase
or decrease the value. Press enter to save the new reference temperature. Next,
highlight the ESC-Exit box and press enter to close the submenu.
Specific Conductance Temperature
Coefficient (SPC %/°C)
SPC %/°C (Specific Conductance Temperature Coefficient) is the temperature
coefficient used to calculate Specific Conductance. The coefficient range is 0.00
to 4.00. The default value is 1.91% which is based on KCl standards.
To change the temperature coefficient, highlight SPC %/°C and press enter to
open the submenu. With the temperature coefficient highlighted, press enter
to make the field adjustable. Next, use the up or down arrow key to increase or
decrease the value. Press enter to save the new coefficient. Next, highlight the
ESC-Exit box and press enter to close the submenu.
TDS Constant
TDS Constant is a multiplier used to calculate an estimated TDS (Total Dissolved
Solids) value from conductivity. The multiplier is used to convert Specific
Conductance in mS/cm to TDS in g/L. The Pro30’s default value is 0.65. 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 sample of water from the site;
3. Completely evaporate the water from a carefully measured volume of
the filtered sample to yield a dry solid;
4. Accurately weigh 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 this site;
6. Divide the TDS value in g/L by the specific conductance of the water in
mS/cm to yield the conversion multiplier. Be certain to use the correct
units.
10
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.
To change the TDS Constant in the Pro30, highlight TDS Constant and press
enter to open the submenu. With the TDS Constant highlighted, press enter
to make the field adjustable. Next, use the up or down arrow key to increase or
decrease the value. The input range is 0.30 to 1.00. Press enter to save the new
TDS Constant. Next, highlight the ESC-Exit box and press enter to close the
submenu.
Language
Highlight Language and press enter to open a submenu that allows you to
change the language. Highlight the desired language (English, Spanish, German,
or French) and press enter to enable. The enabled language will have an ‘X’ in the
box next to it. Highlight ESC-Exit box and press enter to save any changes and
to close the Language submenu.
The text in the boxes along the bottom of the Run screen will always be displayed
in English regardless of the language enabled in the System Setup menu.
Auto Shutoff
Auto Shutoff allows you to set the instrument to turn off automatically after a
period of time. Use the up or down arrow keys to highlight Auto Shutoff, then
press enter to open the submenu. Press enter while the minute field is highlighted
to make it adjustable. Next, use the up or down arrow keys to adjust the shut
off time from 0 to 60 minutes. Press enter to save the new shutoff time. Next,
highlight the ESC-Exit box and press enter to close the submenu.
To disable Auto Shutoff, set the Time in Minutes to 0 (zero).
Cell Constant
The Cell Constant displays the cell constant of the conductivity cell. The cell
constant is calculated and updated each time a conductivity calibration is
performed. The cell constant range is 4.0 to 6.0. Resetting the System Menu
resets the cell constant to 5.0.

It is not necessary to calibrate conductivity, specific conductance
and salinity. Calibrating one of these parameters will simultaneously
calibrate the others. YSI recommends calibrating specific conductance
for greatest ease.
Calibrating
Specific

(Sp.)
or
Note: When calibrating Specific Conductance, the Pro30 uses the factory default
values for the Specific Conductance Reference Temperature and the Specific
Conductance Temperature Coefficient regardless of what is configured in the
System Setup Menu. The default value for the Reference Temperature is 25°C
and the default value for the Temperature Coefficient is 1.91%/°C. It is important
to note that the Temperature Coefficient of a calibration solution is dependent
on the contents of the solution. Therefore, YSI recommends using a traceable
calibration solution made of KCl (potassium chloride) when calibrating Specific
Conductance since these solutions typically have a Temperature Coefficient of
1.91%/°C. Additionally, be sure to enter the value of the solution as it is listed for
25°C when calibrating Specific Conductance.
1. Fill a clean container (i.e. plastic cup or glass beaker) with fresh, traceable
conductivity calibration solution and place the sensor into the solution.
The solution must cover the holes of the conductivity sensor that are
closest to the cable (figure 7). Ensure the entire conductivity sensor is
submerged in the solution or the instrument will read approximately
half the expected value. Gently move the probe up and down to remove
any air bubbles from the conductivity sensor.

readings to stabilize. Press and hold the Cal key for 3 seconds. Highlight
Conductivity and press enter. Next, highlight the desired calibration
method, Sp. Conductance or Conductivity, and press enter.
3. Highlight the units you wish to calibrate, either uS/cm or mS/cm, and
press enter. 1 mS = 1,000 uS. Next, use the up or down arrow key to
adjust the value on the display to match the value of the conductivity
calibration solution. If calibrating conductivity, it is necessary to look
up the value of the solution at the current temperature and enter that
value into the Pro30. Most conductivity solutions are labeled with a
value at 25°C. If calibrating specific conductance, enter the value listed
for 25°C. Depressing either the up or down arrow key for 5 seconds will
move the changing digit one place to the left. The Pro30 will remember
the entered calibration value and display it the next time a conductivity
calibration is performed.
4. Press enter to complete the calibration. Or, press Cal to cancel the
calibration and return to the Run screen.
5. ‘Calibration Successful’ will display for a few seconds to indicate a
successful calibration and then the instrument will return to the Run
screen.

T aking M easurements
Before taking measurements, be sure the instrument has been calibrated to ensure
the most accurate readings. Place the probe in the sample to be measured and
give the probe a quick shake to release any air bubbles. Be sure the conductivity
sensor is completely submerged in the sample. The two holes near the cable
should be covered by the sample for accurate conductivity readings (figure 7).
Allow the temperature readings to stabilize.

C are , M aintenance and
S t o rage
This section describes the proper procedures for care, maintenance and storage
of the instrument. The goal is to maximize their lifetime and minimize downtime associated with improper instrument usage.
General Maintenance
General Maintenance - Gasket
The instrument utilizes a gasket as a seal to prevent water from entering the
battery compartment. Following the recommended procedures will help keep
the instrument functioning properly.
Use the up or down arrow key to select Erase Data Set, Erase All Sets or the ESCExit function box, then press enter to confirm.
If the gasket and sealing surfaces are not maintained properly, it is possible that
water can enter the battery compartment. If water enters this area, it can severely
damage the battery terminals causing loss of battery power and corrosion to the
battery terminals. Therefore, when the battery compartment lid is removed, the
gasket that provides the seal should be carefully inspected for contamination (i.e.
debris, grit, etc.) and cleaned with water and mild detergent if necessary.
Select ESC-Exit and press enter to exit Erase mode without erasing any data.
Sensor Maintenance
Select Erase Data Set and press enter to erase the data set that was displayed
before entering Erase mode. For example, if data set 12 was displayed before
entering erase mode, and Erase Data Set is selected, Data Set 12 will be erased
from memory and the data sets AFTER that number will move up to keep them
sequential. For example, if there are15 records and number 12 is erased then 13
becomes 12, 14 becomes 13, and 15 becomes 14. The instrument will return to
Data mode after erasing one data set.
Sensor Maintenance - Temperature
Figure 10, Erase data mode.
Select Erase All Data Sets and press enter to clear the Pro30 memory and return
to Data mode.
Exiting Data Mode
While in Data mode, press enter to access the bottom functions. Next, highlight
the ESC-Exit box and press enter to return to the Run screen.
18
You must keep the temperature sensor free of build up. Other than that, no
additional maintenance is required. A toothbrush can be used to scrub the
temperature sensor if needed.
Sensor Maintenance - Conductivity
The openings that allow sample access to the conductivity electrodes should be
cleaned regularly. The small cleaning brush included in the Maintenance Kit is
intended for this purpose. Dip the brush in clean water and insert it into each
hole 10 to 12 times. In the event that deposits have formed on the electrodes, it
may be necessary to use a mild detergent (laboratory grade soap or bathroom
foaming tile cleaner) with the brush. Rinse thoroughly with clean water, then
check the response and accuracy of the conductivity cell with a calibration
solution.
