Tech Note 1069 Detail

PASPort sensors identification

Affected Products:

PS-2100 USB Link
PS-2001 PASPORT PowerLink

Problem/Symptom:
PASPort sensors identification

PASCO Solution:

DataStudio indentifies PASPort sensors based upon the following priorities:

  • Sensors were connected to the interfaces before DataStudio starts.
    1. sensor model number (e.g., PS-2104, PS-2189, ...)
    2. interface port (for those interfaces for which multiple PASPort ports exist, such as on the PowerLink, Xplorer GLX, SPARKLink, SPARK SLS)
    3. time of first detection by DataStudio, starting when a new DataStudio file is created.
  • Sensors were connected to the interfaces after DataStudio starts.
    1. sensor model number (e.g., PS-2104, PS-2189, ...)
    2. time of first detection by DataStudio, starting when a new DataStudio file is created.

This order of data association will be preserved even if the PASPort sensors are subsequently disconnected, as long as either the DataStudio software remains open or the DataStudio file is saved and reopened.
