Tech Note 1148 Detail

Using ScienceWorkshop sensors with PASPort interfaces

Affected Products:

PS-2158 PASPORT Analog Adapter
PM-2159 NOT A VALID PART NUMBER

Problem/Symptom:
Using ScienceWorkshop sensors with PASPort interfaces

PASCO Solution:

With the latest version of either DataStudio or SPARKvue, analog ScienceWorkshop sensors (identified by their DIN connector) can be connected to any PASPort interface (SPARK Science Learning System, Xplorer, Xplorer GLX, USB Link, PowerLink, SPARKlink, AirLink 2, AirLink SI) via the PS-2158 PASPORT Analog Adapter and digital ScienceWorkshop sensors (identified by their TRS connector) can be connected to PASPort interfaces via the PS-2159 PASPORT Digital Adapter.

  • For the sensors to communicate with DataStudio, select Setup / Choose Interface... / PASPort.
  • Connecting ScienceWorkshop sensors via the PS-2158 and PS-2159 adapters allows them to be used simultaneously with PASPort sensors.
