LabQuest Mini is a powerful, affordable, and easy to use sensor interface for computer-based data collection.

Students using a Vernier Dynamics System with a LabQuest Mini

LabQuest Mini brings the power of Vernier’s award-winning LabQuest technology to teachers who don’t need the versatility of a standalone device. The perfect solution for educators collecting data with a Windows or Macintosh computer, LabQuest Mini works with Logger Pro 3 or Logger Lite software for unparalleled power, analysis, and curricular support.

Key Features

  • 100 kHz maximum sampling rate gives you the unrivaled power of Vernier’s LabQuest interface.
  • Five sensor ports give you the flexibility to choose from over 50 compatible sensors.

“Vernier has produced an excellent product that will serve many classroom environments well. The LabQuest Mini is an incredibly easy-to-use device, and its plug-and-play nature reduces the headache of setup inherent in many data collection products. Students of all ages will have no difficulty using the device…”
