Tech Note 516 Detail

PASPort Light Sensor reads only up to 8100 Lux.

Affected Products:

PS-2106 PASPORT Light Sensor

Problem/Symptom:
PASPort Light Sensor reads to 8100 Lux max, instead of 24000 Lux.

PASCO Solution:
PASPort Light sensors produced before 05/2004 had a deficiency of firmware memory, causing the numbers to wrap at ~ 8100 Lux. The units should be returned to PASCO to have their firmware chips replaced. Please contact Technical Support in order to initiate a return for service and correction.
