YSI ProSample Autosampler

The YSI ProSample series of fully automated portable samplers expand our process monitoring and control equipment offering. These lightweight and easy to use samplers come with a proprietary peristaltic pump for highly accurate sampling based on time, flow, or event. The ProSample series has extremely high volume accuracy to keep your facility in compliance.  The ProSample series is most commonly used in stormwater and storm event sampling, influent and effluent wastewater treatment, collection systems for industrial pre-treatment and any time based sampling requirements. The ProSample series provides a unique combination of design and technology.

The ProSample series of fully automated samplers expands the YSI offering in wastewater, stormwater and industrial wastewater markets as well as others. Designed to be user friendly and easy to program, the ProSample series provides reliable data to keep your facility in compliance with regulations.

Available ProSample models include:

  • ProSample P: full-size portable sampler
  • ProSample P-12: full-size portable sampler with SDI-12 connectivity
  • ProSample PM: mini portable sampler
  • ProSample PM-12: mini portable sampler with SDI-12 connectivity

The proprietary peristaltic pump supplied with the ProSample series, allows for accurate sampling volumes, by using a two sensor design versus the more common one sensor design of most buy-out peristaltic pumps. The samplers come with two sets of tubing, one for operation and one as a spare as standard. 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 itself or on PC with downloaded 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 and ready to begin service. A red light will flash if the system has any errors.

Sampling based on time, flow or event are easily programmable on the ProSample keypad. The automated sampler is battery operated and has extended battery life. The sampler will get up to 550 samples from one battery charge.

Once taking samples and collecting data, the data log is easily recovered using a USB which than can be loaded into a PC. The ProSample series does not require a lap top to be brought to the sampler. The ProSample series has non-volatile data memory for up to 5 years, so you never have to worry your data is unable to be recovered if power is lost.

Accessories that increase the flexibility and enhance the product include, optional bottles (number and size), a suspension harness, filter basket,  and transport trolley in addition to others.
