The Vernier LabPro offers the most versatility in collecting data from Vernier sensors. You can use LabPro with a compatible Texas Instruments graphing calculator, with a computer and Logger Pro software, or on its own as a remote data collector. If your school has more TI graphing calculators than computers, the LabPro is an affordable way to add data-collection to science experiments.

  • Compatible with over 70 Vernier sensors
  • Six data-collection channels allow you to use multiple sensors at once
  • Samples up to 50,000 readings per second
  • Analog output for controlling electrical devices, such as DC motors, fans, LEDs, and more for engineering projects

Compatible Sensors and Lab Equipment

ComputersComputers and Logger Pro84 sensors

Supported Sensors

Compatibility Notes

  1. Requires a Motion Detector Cable to connect to a DIG port on the interface
  2. Requires a BNC electrode
  3. Requires a Heart Rate Receiver to connect to an interface
  4. Sensor does not auto-ID; manual setup is required.
  5. Requires an additional signal source, such as LabQuest 2 running the Power Amplifier app or a computer running the Power Amplifier Function Generator Software, to control the Power Amplifier output
  6. Requires a Gas Pressure Sensor
  7. Use with an electrode such as a pH Sensor, Conductivity Probe, or ORP Sensor.
