Details

In response to the need for accurate, in situ measurement of Rhodamine WT for water and pollutant tracing, YSI has developed the 6130 Rhodamine WT Sensor. The 6130 is a fouling-resistant, wiped sensor designed to seamlessly integrate - using no external interface hardware - with all YSI sondes that contain an optical port.

The YSI 6130 provides accurate, in situ measurement of Rhodamine WT in fresh, brackish, and sea water, as well as in stormwater and wastewater. The YSI 6130 Rhodamine WT Sensor rejects turbidity and chlorophyll interference. Measurement accuracy is further enhanced through correction for the effects of temperature.

The YSI 6130 sensor can be used in combination with those YSI sondes that have optical ports - 600 OMS, 6820, 6920, 6600, 6820 V2, 6920 V2, or 6600 V2 - and a YSI 650 MDS handheld display-logger. Make surface as well as vertical profile measurements. In addition, the YSI 6130 in combination with one of the YSI data logging sondes can be used for unattended continuous monitoring or integrated with data collection platforms for real-time data acquisition.
Notable Specifications:
  • Range: 0-200 ug/L
  • Resolution: 0.1 ug/L
  • Accuracy: +/-5% reading or 1 ug/L, whichever is greater
  • Warranty: 2 years

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
How do I install my 6130 sensor?
Install the 6130 sensor in the center port, seating the pins of the 2 connectors before tightening. Tighten the probe nut to the bulkhead but be sure to not over tighten.
Will high turbidity affect my readings?
A large amount of turbidity is required to affect the readings. (100NTU will read 3Ug/L). If measuring in a highly turbid environment, an independently determined turbidity reading may want to be taken to allow for compensation.

Rhodamine Dye Tracer Systems

Until the advent of in situ rhodamine WT measurement systems, dye fluorometry hydrologic measurements were performed by the analysis of multiple samples physically extracted from the water body as the dye plume was naturally dispersed. Most of these investigations are performed using fluorometers designed for in vitro and pump-through measurements. Although these methods can produce accurate hydrologic data, they are resource-intensive, significantly vulnerable to human error and other natural phenomenon. They also necessitate the field deployment of personnel throughout the duration of the study. The recent employment of in situ measurement systems has accentuated the limitations of in vitro and pump-through methods for performing these studies.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.
