Featured Equipment

Pressure Sensor

Wireless Pressure Sensor

The Wireless Pressure Sensor accurately and consistently measures absolute gas pressure.

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.

Absolute Pressure Sensor

PASPORT Absolute Pressure Sensor

Measures gas pressure from various sources and internal vacuum allows consistent measurement above and below ambient conditions. 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.
