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.
  • 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
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.

Engaging People, Engaging Lakes: How The Public Can Help Aquatic Systems

Jo Latimore’s interest in aquatic ecology dates back to her childhood, spending time at her parents’ North Michigan cabin, exploring the water nearby. Today she is a senior academic specialist, aquatic ecologist, and outreach specialist at Michigan State University in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife , in her thirteenth year in the position. Latimore’s primary interests include lake appreciation and engagement.  “Most people appreciate our lakes. They like to look at, fish on, and boat on them. However, they don’t necessarily appreciate our lakes as an ecosystem,” Latimore said. “It’s the health of the lakes that lets us use them recreationally.

Aquatic Systems Connectivity: Finding Relationships Between Waters

An early aquatic science pioneer, Luna Leopold, said that “The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land.” Determining how the land impacts water quality, however, is complex. There must be an understanding of the flow of materials, organisms, and energy within our waters and how they are connected, or even whether they are connected. Enter the emerging field of aquatic systems connectivity.
