Our pressure sensors are dynamically designed to apply to a variety of subject applications including physics, chemistry, biology, and environmental studies. This page provides a comparison chart for our ScienceWorkshop, PASPORT, and Wireless Pressure Sensors to help you determine which sensor is best for your classroom or lab.

PASCO Sensor PASCO Interface Purpose
