Xplorer GLX - PS-2002


Shown in use with a PAStrack, PAScar, PASPORT Motion Sensor, and Rod & Stand

New for 2018!

Our Next Gen Dataloggers are here!

After years of use in classrooms around the world, the Xplorer GLX is scheduled to be discontinued. It is still available in limited quantities but we are introducing a new generation of dataloggers, the SPARK LX (PS-3601) and SPARK LXi (PS-3601).

The SPARK LX can connect PASPORT sensors using a wireless interface such as the AirLink while the SPARK LXi has two direct PASPORT ports. Both run the latest version of SPARKvue, are compatible with our full wireless line and feature our new lab management application: Lab Manager.

See full details and information.


For over a decade the Xplorer GLX datalogger has been used in thousands of science classrooms around the world. But its long and successful run is coming to an end. The GLX is scheduled to be discontinued and a limited quantity of them remain. 


  • Large backlit LCD -- visible in both sunlight and low light
  • Stand-Alone or Computer Interface
  • 4 universal sensor ports -- use with over 60 PASPORT sensors
  • 4 built-in sensors (2 temperature, sound, voltage)
  • Collect Data in the Classroom or the Field
  • Graphs, tables, digits, and meter displays

The world's first graphing logger for science that truly stands alone . . . the Xplorer GLX captures, analyzes, annotates, stores and prints data quickly and seamlessly, without being connected to a computer. A science lab wherever you need it. Also, connect to a computer and unleash the full power of the new PASCO Capstone software.

PASCO Capstone - The all-new software for the Xplorer GLX.  Available now!

Built for Science Measurement

  • Large 320 x 240 backlit transflective LCD grayscale display. Readable in a dark room as well as sunlight.
  • 8 sensor ports total--4 dedicated for included sensors and 4 open ports.
  • Includes 2 temperature, sound and voltage sensors.
  • 12 MB Internal Memory - Useful for high data collection rates and storing multiple data files.
  • Real-time graphing and calculations from Floating Point Processor--even instant calculations on live data as it is collected
  • Built-in graphing calculator with expression editor.
  • Built-in dual independent function generators.
  • Built-in speaker for sound output.

How It Works

A Computer Interface . . .

Functions as a powerful desktop interface for PASPORT and ScienceWorkshop Sensors (optional adapter required for use with ScienceWorkshop sensors) Connects to the USB port of the computer Can be used in combination with all PASPORT Interfaces

. . . Or a Complete Stand Alone, Use Anywhere Solution

Large LCD screen enables students to easily review data and perform basic data analysis, such as statistics and linear curve fits Icon-based operating system Easy-to-use buttons for navigation, including numeric and alphanumeric keypad Annotate data points or runs with either text notes or recorded voice messages Plug an optional USB mouse and keyboard into the Xplorer GLX for navigation and annotation Print student graphs and tables directly from the Xplorer GLX to select HP USB printers. See the Xplorer GLX Printer Compatibility list. Manage your experiment file library on the GLX; enough memory to store many data files Rechargeable NiMH battery provides a full day of use without the need for external power
