Tech Note 414 Detail

Using PASCO ScienceWorkshop Sensors with Vernier Interfaces

Affected Products:

CI-6400 ScienceWorkshop 500 Interface
CI-7650 750 Interface, USB

Problem/Symptom:
How do I use PASCO ScienceWorkshop Sensors with Vernier Interfaces?

PASCO Solution:

Many of the PASCO ScienceWorkshop sensors are not compatible with Vernier interfaces because they require + 12 V and - 12 V supplies, which are not provided by the Vernier interfaces.
