Details

The YSI EXO represents the next generation of water quality instruments from YSI. The advanced sonde platform offers a wide range of capabilities to those dedicated to monitoring natural aquatic environments such as oceans, estuaries, rivers, lakes, and groundwater.


The EXO1 sonde includes four sensor ports with internal data logging and battery power. Sensor parameters include temperature, conductivity, depth, dissolved oxygen, pH, ORP, total algae (phycocyanin and chlorophyll), turbidity, and fluorescent dissolved organic matter (fDOM). The sonde can also output 4 calculated parameters including salinity, specific conductance, total dissolved solids (TDS) and total suspended solids (TSS).


All EXO sensors are digital sensors with on-board signal processing and memory. Built-in sensor diagnostic and calibration data allows users to calibrate multiple sensors in one sonde and distribute to various other sondes in the field. Wet-mateable connectors allow for swaps in wet conditions, while active port monitoring automatically detects each sensor and verifies operation.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
If I have multiple field sites and want to add turbidity sensors, do I have recalibrate all of my EXO sondes?
No, each sensor has it's own internal memory for storing calibration. All of your turbidity sensors can be calibrated with a single EXO sonde and then transferred to the field sites.
How is my EXO1 powered?
The EXO1 is powered with (2) D-cell batteries.
I'm worried about corrosion during a long-term deployment, what can I do?
A zinc anode kit (part number #599595) can be purchased to minimize corrosion. This anode kit is composed of zinc making it more susceptible to corrosion (oxidation) than the rest of the sonde. This kit is installed in an empty sensor port and prevents the rest of the sonde from corroding.
If I am using all of my sensor ports, can I still prevent corrosion?
Another way to prevent corrosion is to install an anode guard and guard weight (part number # 599563 and #599520) This guard and guard weight is composed of zinc and will protect the sonde from corrosion during a long-term deployment.

On Lake Powell, houseboating scientists peer into reservoir's mercury problem

Lake Powell, the canyon-lined, serpentine reservoir that straddles the Utah-Arizona border, draws millions of visitors every year. Vacationers there often take to houseboats for a mellow week on the water amongst the red sandstone cliffs. That never appealed much to David Naftz, a U.S. Geological Survey research hydrologist who lived in Utah before taking up a post with the agency's Montana Science Center. But then duty called, in the form of a project to learn more about mercury contamination in the lower half of the 180-mile reservoir. He and six USGS researchers from across the country — "A lot of the mercury gurus," Naftz said — stayed 12 nights on 60-foot houseboat on the lake. "It does sound fun, and it was a fun trip, but there were very long days," Naftz said.

RV Chippewa expands Central Michigan University's Great Lakes research reach

A newly acquired research vessel is opening the door to new possibilities for Great Lakes research for both students and faculty alike at Central Michigan University. The RV Chippewa—a 32.5-foot boat outfitted with state-of-the-art water monitoring equipment—was purchased by the university this summer for $350,000. The acquisition of the boat was made possible by a $10 million grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency given to Central Michigan University in 2010 to help study the Great Lakes and their surrounding wetlands. The university’s Institute for Great Lakes Research shares the boat. The institute is a coalition of students and faculty taking a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the issues facing the Great Lakes basin.

Stone Laboratory to open new algae focused water quality lab

Ohio State University’s Stone Laboratory will open a new lab this summer focused on algae and water quality, according to the Ohio Sea Grant magazine Twine Line . The new laboratory will be in the Stone Lab Research Building on Lake Erie’s South Bass Island. Many instruments and tests will be accessible at the lab to evaluate all functions of algal blooms from photosynthesis to nutrient consumption.  The lab will enable scientists to test phytoplankton, water and sediment samples on the lake instead of sending them away. This should save researchers time and money in the long run. Lab administrators hope to increase collaborations with other research organizations and government agencies through the creation of the new laboratory.
