The next-generation YSI ROX is a luminescent-based dissolved oxygen sensor that offers YSI customers the most powerful tool for making long-term oxygen measurements in severe fouling and low oxygen environments. Their rugged design and large measurement range make these optical oxygen sensors ideal for sampling, flow cell, and groundwater measurements.
YSI understands the challenges facing scientists and technicians in the field today. The lessons the company’s employees have learned firsthand have been applied to the design of the new ROX sensor.
Improving on YSI’s commitment to supplying customers with relevant calibration and QA/QC data, each ROX sensor is shipped with full-range factory calibration coefficients to ensure excellent sensor accuracy.
The ROX sensing system is based on the luminescence lifetime method. This method was chosen because it offers the most stable, repeatable, and sensitive method for oxygen detection, thus reducing sensor drift and prolonging deployment times.
The ROX membrane differs from the traditional electrochemical sensor membrane, requiring fewer steps for installation and less maintenance. ROX membranes will last for one year and are made of a durable material that is unlikely to be damaged in the field. The ROX sensor eliminates stirring dependency that was required of most traditional polarographic sensors.
YSI’s optical DO sensor has several advantages over the Rapid Pulse DO sensor including:
