The YSI ProODO dissolved meter with optical oxygen sensor utilises the ODO® technology in order to take a dissolved oxygen measurement. There is a lot of information available recently about dissolved oxygen technologies among optical, polarographic, and galvanic. Optical DO definitely has advantages in certain applications.
Official WEFTEC Operations Challenge instrument for BODs.
Field Worthy
The ProODO instrument meets the demands of true field work. The instrument is rated to IP-67 standards even without the battery cover on. In-house testing procedures also include 1-meter drop tests from all angles to ensure expected field-durability. Other tough features include:
  • 3-year instrument warranty and a 2-year cable and probe warranty
  • Optical dissolved oxygen 
  • Military Spec (MS) connectors
  • Rubber over-moulded case
  • Field tested cables
  • Rugged, weighted probe guard
The instrument provides versatility with numerous benefits from the following features:
  • 5,000 data-set memory
  • Expanded DO range of 0-500% (0-50 mg/L)
  • OBOD optical, self-stirring BOD probe for the lab
  • Password protection
  • Backlit display and keypad
  • Graphic display with detailed Help visible with polarized sunglasses
  • Detailed GLP data
  • Multiple languages
