6950 Fixed Vertical Profiler

SKU: 6950FixedVerticalProfiler
Overview Documentation & Tools


The YSI 6950 Vertical Profiling Systems provide automated data collection and telemetry throughout a water column in watersheds, source water and reservoir monitoring.

Product Features
  • NEMA4 enclosure for electronics
  • Compatible with all EXO and 6-Series sondes equipped with depth
  • User-selected sample intervals
  • Profile Wizard Software for simple program configuration
  • Wireless or direct connection data transmission available

The 6950 Fixed Profiling System provides reliable, fully-automated data collection.

Mountable on a dam, pier, piling, or other stationary location, the 6950 offers user-programmable sample intervals with wireless transmission options. This Fixed Profiler is compatible with all YSI EXO or 6-Series sondes equipped with depth, and comes with Profile Wizard software for easy set-up and deployment.

The fixed vertical profiling system, when equipped with a fully loaded EXO sonde, can be programmed to move up and down the water column at regular intervals collecting valuable data on the waters condition with respect to various parameters. That information can then be relayed via telemetry or a direct connection such as Ethernet so that water treatment managers can view the data in real time. With this information, managers can adjust water treatment operations.

Applications Include:

  • Drinking Water Reservoirs to ascertain water quality, salinity, turbidity, temperature, chlorophyll, DO, pH and PAR (photosynthetically-active radiation)
  • Homeland Security applications
  • Research of upwelling events
  • Hydropower thermal phenomena and temperature
  • General Monitoring of lakes, rivers, estuaries, and bays
  • Industrial drinking water holding tanks 

If you're interested in additional profiling systems we also offer pontoon profilers and buoyed profilers.

Available Options:

  • SCADA Interface - Allows for data collection from a YSI Vertical Profiler via direct connection or telemetry to a customers PLC
  • CASTAWAY Profile - The Castaway option for Vertical Profilers allows for continuous payout of cable, sampling the entire time
