Temperature and Conductivity Sensor
Precision Temperature and Conductivity in a Single Sensor
Included with virtually every 6-Series sonde, the 6560 provides reliable temperature and conductivity readings.
YSI utilizes a high-precision thermistor: 2252 ohms at 25ºC (±1%) for temperature measurement. Resistance changes with temperature and the 6-Series sondes convert resistance into ºC, ºF, or K automatically. Best of all, the temperature sensor is calibration- and maintenance-free.
Four pure-nickel electrodes allow the YSI 6560 to accurately determine the conductivity of a sample. Along with conductivitiy, the YSI 6-series sonde can calculate specific conductance, salinity, resistivity and total dissolved solids.
This sensor is available for use on the following sondes:
Range: -5 to 60ºC
Range: 0 to 100 mS/cm
Resolution: 0.001 to 0.1 mS/cm (range dependent)
Accuracy: ±0.5% of reading plus 0.001 mS/cm
You can rely on the accuracy and reliability of YSI's sensor technology - the performance of the 6560 sensor has been ETV Verified.*
**Conductivity is optional on the 600LS.
