SETTING THE DATE AND TIME
GETTING STARTED
1.
2.
3.
Unpack the instrument and install (2) C size batteries in the back of the instrument.
Tighten the four screws of the battery plate on to the back of the instrument.
4.
If necessary, install the sensors into the cable assembly by inserting the sensors into the
ports and then hand tightening them. Do not use a tool and do not over tighten.
If using a 1010 cable, a sensor must be installed in port 1 for correct operation. If
installing a pH/ORP combo sensor into a 1010 cable, ORP will not be measured. If
using a 1020 cable, install a pH, ORP, pH/ORP, or an ISE sensor in port 1 and a DO
sensor in port 2.
If using a Quatro cable, install a pH, ORP, or ISE sensor in ports label 1 and 2. A sensor
must be installed in port 1 for port 2 to operate correctly. If you install a pH/ORP
combo sensor into port 1 or port 2, ORP will not be measure. Install the Dissolved
Oxygen sensor in the port labeled DO. Install the Conductivity/Temperature sensor in
the port labeled CT following the instructions included with the sensor. For ease of
installation, YSI recommends that you install a sensor into port 1 first; followed by DO
installation, then port 2, and lastly C/T.

SETTING UP SENSORS & REPORTING UNITS
A sensor must be enabled in the Sensor menu for it to operate. Once a sensor is
enabled, the desired units for that sensor must be selected in the Display menu to
determine what will be displayed.

Please refer to the Getting Started Setup section of the Manual for a complete list of
sensor/cable port configurations.

Install a port plug into any port that does not have an installed sensor. Attach the cable
assembly to your instrument.

Press the Sensor
Highlight Setup and press enter. Highlight the parameter of interest and press
enter. Highlight Enabled and press enter to ensure a checkmark in the box.
When enabling the ISE1 and ISE2 ports, you must select the correct sensor
after enabling the port.
When Dissolved Oxygen is enabled, a submenu allows the user to select the
sensor type (Polarographic or Galvanic) and membrane type being used.
Highlight Sensor Type or Membrane and press Enter to modify these settings.

return to the Run screen.
Note: The DO sensor is shipped with a red protective cap to protect the electrode. A
new membrane cap must be installed before the first use.
1. Prepare the O2 probe solution according to the instructions on the bottle.
After mixing, allow the solution to sit for 1 hour. This will help prevent air
bubbles from later developing under the membrane.
2. Remove, and discard or save the red protective cap.
3. Thoroughly rinse the sensor tip with distilled or deionized water.
4. Fill a new membrane cap with probe solution. Avoid touching the membrane
portion of the cap.
5. Thread the membrane cap onto the sensor, moderately tight. A small amount
of electrolyte will overflow.
6. Screw the probe sensor guard on moderately tight.
Once changes to the Sensor menu have been completed, you must determine which
units will be reported (i.e. %, mg/L, oC, oF, etc.).
MENU FUNCTIONS
BAROMETER CALIBRATION
The Professional Plus has a menu-based interface. Press the “hot keys” to access the
System, Sensor, Calibration, and File menus (from left to right at the top of the keypad).
To navigate through the menus, use the up and down arrow keys to highlight a desired

Highlight the parameter you want to access and press the Enter.
A submenu will open allowing you to select the reporting units. Some
parameters can be reported in multiple units. For example, DO can be
reported in DO%, DO mg/L, and DO ppm. Other parameters, for example
temperature, can only be reported in one unit. Make selections from the
submenu, and then press the left arrow key to return to the Display menu or
to return to the Run screen.

Determine your local barometric pressure (BP) in mmHg from a mercury
barometer, an independent laboratory, or from a local weather service. If the
BP reading has been corrected to sea level, use the following equation to
determine the true BP in mmHg for your altitude:

Press the Cal
key.
Highlight the parameter you wish to calibrate and press enter. For
Conductivity, a second menu will offer the option of calibrating Specific
Conductance, Conductivity, or Salinity. Calibrating one automatically
calibrates the other two. An additional sub-menu will require you to select the
calibration units. For pH, auto-buffer recognition will determine which buffer
the sensor is in and it will allow you to calibrate up to 6 points.
Place the correct amount of calibration standard into a clean, dry or pre-rinsed
container.
Immerse the probe into the solution, making sure the sensor and thermistor
are adequately immersed. Allow at least one minute for temperature to
stabilize.
For any of parameters, enter the calibration solution value by highlighting
Calibration Value, pressing enter, and then using the alpha/numeric keypad to
enter the known value. Once you have entered the value of the calibration
standard, highlight <<<ENTER>>> and press enter.
Wait for the readings to stabilize, highlight Accept Calibration and press enter
to calibrate.
For pH, continue with the next point by placing the probe in a second buffer
to complete the

Moisten the sponge in the cal/transport sleeve with a small amount of water
and install it on the probe. The cal/transport sleeve ensures venting to the
atmosphere. For dual port and Quatro cables, place a small amount of water
(1/8 inch) in the calibration/transport cup and screw it on the probe.
Disengage a thread or two to ensure atmospheric venting. Make sure the DO
and temperature sensors are not immersed in the water.
Turn the instrument on. If using a polarographic sensor, wait 10 minutes for
the DO sensor to stabilize. Galvanic sensors do not require a warm up time.
The instrument will be in Run mode when powered on.
To take readings, insert the probe into the sample. Move the probe in the
sample until the readings stabilize. This releases any air bubbles and provides
movement if measuring DO.
Log One Sample is already highlighted in Run mode. Press enter to open a
submenu. Highlight Sites or Folders and press enter to select the site or folder
to log the sample to.
If necessary, use the keypad to create a new Site or Folder name. If Site List and
Folder List are disabled in the System menu, you will not see these options
when logging a sample.
Once the Site and/or Folder name is selected, highlight Log Now and press
enter. The instrument will confirm that the data point was logged successfully.
If you would like to log at a specific interval vs. logging one sample at a time,
key. Use the arrow keys to highlight Logging and press
press the System
enter. Enable Continuous Mode and adjust the time Interval if necessary. On
the Run screen, the option to log will change from Log One Sample to Start
Logging based on the time interval entered.
During a continuous log, the Start Logging dialog box on the Run screen will
change to Stop Logging.

DO CALIBRATION
The Pro Plus offers four options for calibrating dissolved oxygen. The first is an air
calibration method in % saturation. The second and third calibrates in mg/L or ppm to
a solution with a known DO concentration (usually determined by a Winkler
Titration). Calibration of any option (% or mg/L and ppm) will automatically calibrate
the other. The fourth option is a zero calibration. If performing a zero calibration, you
must perform a % or mg/L calibration following the zero calibration. For both ease of
use and accuracy, YSI recommends performing the following 1-point DO % calibration:
key, highlight DO and press enter.
Press the Cal
Highlight DO%, then press Enter.
Verify the barometric pressure and salinity displayed are accurate. Once DO
and temperature are stable, highlight Accept Calibration and press enter.
