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. 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
  5. Sensor does not auto-ID; manual setup is required.
  6. Requires a Gas Pressure Sensor
  7. Use with an electrode such as a pH Sensor, Conductivity Probe, or ORP Sensor.

ComputersComputers and Logger Lite74 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. 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
  5. Sensor does not auto-ID; manual setup is required.
  6. Requires a Gas Pressure Sensor
  7. Software does not support baseline adjustment, which is necessary for lung capacity measurements.
  8. This interface/software combination auto IDs the VSMT Force sensor; displacement measurements require a Logger Lite file found at http://www.vernier.com/til/3621/

ChromebookChromebook and Graphical Analysis for Chrome63 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. Data can be collected using the sensor’s default calibration. Future software updates will support calibration modifications.
  4. This software cannot apply digital filters to EKG data.
  5. Software does not support the Data Tagging feature that is typically used with this sensor.
  6. 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
  7. Software cannot calculate resistance or power data.
  8. This interface/software combination can only collect force data; displacement measurements are not supported.
