YSI 600XL Multiparameter Water Quality Sonde

YSI 600XL Multiparameter Water Quality Sonde

Pine Item #54672
Both the YSI 600XL (sampling) and the YSI 600 XLM (logging) are economical solutions in small packages for surface water and groundwater applications. Both easily fit into 2-inch wells and measure a range of fundamental parameters, including oxygen - with the YSI Rapid Pulse™ stirring-independent dissolved oxygen sensor - and level, using a highly-accurate vented sensor.

Optical sensor port provides a multipurpose platform

Field-replaceable sensors for quicker maintenance

Easily connects to data collection platforms

Anti-fouling wipers on optical sensors extend deployment times

Compatible with YSI 650 Multiparameter Display System

Flow cell available for pump-through applications

Horizontal measurements in very shallow waters


Dissolved oxygen


Specific conductance


Total dissolved solids (TDS)



Redox (ORP)
