ProSample Automated Sampler

This post is also available in: viVietnamese

The ProSample series of fully automated samplers expands the YSI offering in the wastewater, stormwater and industrial wastewater markets, as well as others. With two portable options, the ProSample P and the ProSample PM are designed to be user-friendly and easy to program.
The proprietary peristaltic pump of the ProSample series, allows for accurate sampling volumes, by using a two sensor design versus the more common one sensor design of most peristaltic pumps. The samplers come with two sets of tubing, one for operation and one as a spare. The spring loaded roller bearings of the pump provide longer tube life, up to 20% longer than the competition.
Programming the ProSample series is quick and user-friendly. Calibration time takes less than 2 minutes and can be done on the sampler or on a PC with YSIConnect software. Once the sampler is ready for operation, a light will flash green as a visual indication the sampler is properly programmed and calibrated.
Sampling based on time, flow or event are easily programmable on the ProSample keypad. The automated sampler is battery operated and has an extended battery life and can get up to 550 samples from one battery charge.
After samples and data are collected, the data log is easily recovered using a USB flash drive which can be loaded into a PC. The ProSample series does not require a laptop to download data. The ProSample series has non-volatile data memory for up to 5 years, so you never have to worry about your data if power is lost.
