Interfaces

Connect any of the over 80 PASPORT* sensors to your Mac or Windows computer, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, Android phone, Chromebook or SPARK Element using a PASCO interface.

PASPORT Interfaces

Notes:

  1. Wireless Sensors connect directly to your devices without the need for an interface. 

  2. If you are using ScienceWorkshop sensors (in the black rather than blue cases), you will need a 550 or 850 interface, an adapter or a legacy ScienceWorkshop interface.  Learn more.

USB/Wireless Interfaces

  • Can connect via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth® to computers, tablets and/or smart phones
  • Compatible with SPARKvue and PASCO Capstone software.
  • Accepts all PASPORT sensors.  Most Science Workshop sensors can be used with the proper adapter.
