Featured Equipment

PASPORT Barometer/Low Pressure Sensor

This sensor measures atmospheric pressure changes and doubles as a low pressure sensor. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
