PASCO Capstone Software

Total:

U.S. Educator Pricing Only

Overview

PASCO Capstone is the next leap forward in software for data acquisition, display and analysis and destined to be the new standard in advanced physics and engineering labs. 

Not an upgrade on existing software, PASCO Capstone was built from the ground up to be the most powerful and flexible option available.

While it was designed in conjunction with the 850 Universal Interface, Capstone is completely compatible with all current PASCO Interfaces - and even older interfaces such as the Power Link and Science Workshop 750 or 500. 

The hallmarks of Capstone are powerful features, and unprecedented flexibility.  

Create and customize lab pages quickly and easily setting sample rates and tool palettes for each page individually.  Sync your data collection with video or replay your data collection at slow, normal or fast speed.  Simple to use tables make it easy to rearrange and analyze data and the calibration wizard will aid in setting up experiments simply and accurately.  And the Undo/Redo function makes it easy to try out new features.

PASCO Capstone supercedes our previousl award winning physics software, DataStudio with greater features and functionality. Current DataStudio users should give Capstone a try as it will allow you to open all your DataStudio files while providing you with new features and options.
