NOTE: These are legacy dynamics systems that will be available through 2017 and then obsolete in 2018.

Beginning in 2017 we have a Dynamics System Builder to help you create exactly the system you want.

Wireless Smart Carts (patent pending) are the most advanced dynamics cart ever created as they boast onboard motion encoders, a 3 axis accelerometer  and a force sensor while still having the robust, low friction performance of all PASCO carts.

No more cable clutter! With all of the data collection elements built in, Smart Carts allow completely free movement of the carts since all the data is transmitted wirelessly via Bluetooth to your computers or tablets.

The Smart Cart Dynamics System is very similar to the PAScar Dynamics Systems in that it has aluminum tracks (1.2 m and 2.2 m versions available) and rugged polycarbonate carts. But instead of standard PAScars, this system includes the brand new Smart Carts.

The Smart Cart Dynamics Systems are more expensive than the comparable PAScar systems but for anyone using sensors and software for data collection and analysis they actually represent a fantastic value. This is because you no longer need to purchase an interface or interfaces, motion sensors, photo gates, force or acceleration sensors as all that data is collected by the individual Smart Carts.

Bluetooth 4 Connectivity

Required Software:

PASCO products that use Bluetooth® 4 technology - wireless sensors, smart carts, and the AirLink Interface - require the latest versions of our software. PASCO Capstone 1.9.1 is available for Mac and Windows. SPARKvue 2.7.0 is available for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Chromebooks.

Compatibility/System requirements

Any current model Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or Android phone will support direct connection to PASCO Bluetooth 4 devices.

Windows computers/tablets, Chromebooks and older Macs currently require the PS-3500 USB Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter to connect to PASCO’s Bluetooth 4 devices.

Full compatibility details are available, including compatibility information for older computing devices.



The patent pending Wireless Smart Cart has been nominated for a  prestigious GESS (Global Education Supplies and Solutions) Innovation Product award for 2016.

Buying Guide

USB Bluetooth Adapter

Windows devices, Chromebooks and older Macs lack native Bluetooth® Smart support and require an adapter to use PASCO wireless products.

All current model Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets or phones support direct connection to PASCO Bluetooth Smart devices and do not require the adapter.

Full compatibility details are available.
