Featured Equipment

Weather Sensor with GPS

Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS

This sensor is packed with 19 different measurements, including GPS, that can be monitored live or collected over the long term.

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

PASPORT Weather Anemometer Sensor

PASPORT Weather Anemometer Sensor

The Weather Anemometer Sensor measures wind speed and wind chill in addition to temperature, barometric pressure, relative and absolute humidity, and dew point.

Fast Response Temperature Probe

PASPORT Fast Response Temperature Probe (3 pack)

Allows students to see instant changes in temperature in sensitive and fast-changing conditions. For use with temperature sensors and interface using 3.5-mm connectors.

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.
