Tech Note 117 Detail

Calibration

Affected Products:

CI-6504A Light Sensor

Problem/Symptom:
My light sensor when used with ScienceWorkshop never seems to go over 50 percent intensity. What can I do?

PASCO Solution:
You can change the default calibration in the software. To do this in Science Workshop, after you have plugged the analog sensor into the analog channel and selected light sensor from the list, click on the light sensor icon. This procedure will call up the calibration window. Change the voltage value corresponding to 100 percent from 10 volts to 5 volts. Click OK.

You may wish to save this setup by selecting save as from the file menu so that you will not have to repeat this procedure each time you use the light sensor.
