Tech Note 602 Detail

Using Vernier sensors with a PASCO Interface

Affected Products:

PS-2010 PASPORT AirLink 2
PS-2008A SPARK Science Learning System
PS-2002 Xplorer GLX

Problem/Symptom:
How do I use my Vernier sensor(s) with a PASCO interface and PASCO software (DataStudio, SPARKvue, SPARKvue HD , or with the Xplorer GLX and SPARK SLS, or PASCO Capstone)?

PASCO Solution:

A video showing the use of Vernier sensors with our SPARKvue software and app is shown at the link below.

Predefined Calibrations

The PASCO Capstone, SPARKvue, SPARKvue HD, the PS-2008(A) SPARK SLS (with Firmware 1.10 or later), PS-2002 Xplorer GLX (with Firmware 1.4.3 or later), DataStudio 1.9.8.2+ all have builit-in calibrations for the following Vernier sensors:

Other Vernier sensors may be used with PASCO interfaces, but would require the user to calibrate the sensors to obtain accurate results. Below is a list of the required adapters for Analog CBL Vernier sensors:

PASCO ScienceWorkshop interface

  • IW-4084 BT to DIN-to-Vernier Adapter

PASCO PASPort interface

  • PS-2660 Vernier Adapter Kit

Below is a list of required adapters for Venier ULI sensors:
