YSI® 85 Hand-held Salinity, Conductivity, Dissolved Oxygen & Temperature System


The YSI® 85 determines salinity, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, and temperature! The YSI® 85 is a rugged, microprocessor-based, hand-held digital meter with an attached YSI® combination conductivity and dissolved oxygen probe. The conductivity portion of the probe is a four electrode cell with a cell constant of 5.0 cm/±4% while the dissolved oxygen portion is a polarographic Clark-type sensor that uses cap membranes. DO readings are automatically compensated for salinity and temperature. Unit’s non-volatile memory stores up to 50 data sets. Other features of the YSI®85 include autoranging, a bright backlit display, an automatic function check, and a large display that always shows temperature along with your dissolved oxygen, conductivity, temperature-compensated conductivity or salinity reading. The YSI® 85 is powered by 6 AA batteries (included) which provide about 100 hours of operation (display warns when batteries are low).
