SPARK LX and SPARK LXi

The hub of your modern science classroom, the SPARK LX and LXi are the ideal platforms for PASCO sensors, both Wireless and PASPORT while providing a connected, easy-to-manage learning environment powered by SPARKvue software and the Lab Manager application.

PASCO's new datalogger blends software and hardware for data collection and analysis along with classroom management capabilities, all on one device.

This innovative science handheld works seamlessly with all PASCO PASPORT and Wireless Sensors.

The LX connects to PASPORT sensors through a wireless interface such as the AirLink or 550 while the LXi has two direct PASPORT ports build in.

Lab Manager

PASCO delivers a new classroom management application included with the SPARK LX and SPARK LXi dataloggers. Lab Manager allows teachers to have control over student lab devices to ensure greater efficiency and student engagement.

With Lab Manager teachers can:

  • Control and monitor student screens
  • Broadcast screens to students
  • Create lab groups for data-sharing
  • Send and collect quizzes to and from individual students or groups

SPARK LX and LXi features include:

  • Award winning Software suite
  • Ruggedized, water-resistant case
  • 9.6" full color touchscreen
  • 5 virtual ports for wireless sensor connection
  • 2 PASPORT ports, voltage and temp ports (LXi only)
  • Online or offline connectivity

Choose from Two Models:

The SPARK LXi: Designed for use with wired and wireless sensors, the SPARK LXi can simultaneously accommodate up to five wireless sensors. It also includes two ports for blue PASPORT sensors, plus two ports for the included Fast Response Temp Probe and the Voltage Probe.

The SPARK LX: Designed for use with PASCO Wireless sensors (or for use with PASPORT sensors + an AirLink or 550 Universal Interface). The SPARK LX can simultaneously connect up to five wireless sensors.

Details and ordering info for the LXi

Designed for science investigation.

The SPARK LX and SPARK LXi are dedicated devices for the science lab and beyond.

The large screen promotes collaboration and the award-winning software and real-time data collection and analysis create greater student engagement and better retention of information and core concepts.

Built to withstand years of student use, the SPARK LX and LXi are protected against drops or spills whether in a wet lab or being used in the field.

The connected classroom.

The SPARK LX and LXi make sensor based investigation easy. They both use in-app, proximity pairing to connect to PASCO Wireless Sensors and the LX can use the optional AirLink interface to connect any PASPORT sensors while the LXi provides two PASPORT sensor ports for direct connection.

Lab Manager software connects all the groups in the room, providing you with both a view of each group's work as well as the ability to control and collaborate directly with all students.

SPARKvue is our award-winning science learning application that combines rich standards-based content, data collection, visualization, analysis, and assessment into one seamless environment.

The SPARK LXi - a path forward.

Still hanging on to your GLXs or first generation SPARK Dataloggers?

The SPARK LXi allows you to continue to use your existing PASPORT sensors while upgrading to the latest PASCO software.

Best of all, by moving to the SPARK LXi you'll now be able to use wireless sensors (including Smart Carts) in conjunction with your PASPORT sensors,

Need more power for the physics lab? The SPARK LXi (as well as the LX) is also compatible with the 550 Universal Interface.

The SPARK LXi includes an integrated interface with two PASPORT ports for direct connection of all blue PASPORT sensors. It also features ports for the included temperature and voltage probes.
