Problem/Symptom:
How do I setup my Science Workshop 500 interface?

PASCO Solution:
  1. With your computer turned off, locate the serial port on the back of your computer. The serial port may have 25 pins or 9 pins and might have the symbol "10101" next to it.
  2. If you have a 9 pin serial port, connect the 25 to 9 pin serial adapter to the pc serial cable that comes with the 500 interface.
  3. Connect and secure the serial cable to the back of the computer. The cable is keyed so that you cannot plug it in incorrectly.
  4. Connect the other end of the serial cable to the port labeled "TO COMPUTER" on the back of the 500 interface box.
  5. Insert the AC adapter plug into the back of the 500 interface. Plug the AC adapter into a standard AC power outlet.
  6. Switch the interface on using the power switch on the back of the interface. The green light will illuminate on the front on the interface.
  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. Install the Science Workshop software.
