LabQuest Stream

LabQuest Stream joins the LabQuest family to bring wireless and
wired connectivity to the mobile learning environment.

LabQuest Stream overview video

Description

With LabQuest Stream, our wireless and USB sensor interface, students have the freedom and flexibility to simultaneously collect data from multiple Vernier sensors using a mobile device, a Chromebook, or a computer. Just like the name suggests, students can stream data directly to a mobile device using Bluetooth® connectivity rather than Wi-Fi. That’s especially important for schools where network access may be limited or restricted. In addition, LabQuest Stream includes USB connectivity, which allows it to connect directly to a Chromebook or a computer when needed.

  • AndroidAndroid tablets and phones
  • Windows and Mac computerWindows and Mac
  • ChromebookChromebook

Multi-Platform Compatibility

There are multiple ways to collect data using LabQuest Stream, which is compatible with over 50 Vernier sensors.

Use LabQuest Stream as a wireless interface with our free Graphical Analysis apps for iOS® and Android when students use tablets or other mobile devices.

LabQuest Stream also connects to Windows and Mac computers with the included USB cable and our Logger Pro or Logger Lite computer software.

If you’re using Chromebooks, connect LabQuest Stream with the included USB cable and collect data with our free Graphical Analysis for Chrome app.

Key Features

  • Multi-channel sensor interface supports both wireless data collection for mobile devices and USB data collection for computers and Chromebooks. It works in the lab, the classroom, and in the field.
  • Five sensor ports give you the flexibility to choose from over 50 Vernier sensors to support multi-variable experiments and data-logging activities.
  • Collect and analyze sensor data wirelessly with iPad and Android devices
  • This computer interface is compatible with Windows and Mac computers via USB connection. Wireless connection to computers coming with a future update to Logger Pro.
  • Wireless connectivity using Bluetooth® technology delivers real-time data collection with mobile devices.
  • Connect directly to a Chromebook using a USB cable.
  • Real-time wireless data collection—up to 10,000 samples per second
  • Rapid, real-time data collection—up to 100,000 samples per second—when connected via USB
  • High-capacity, rechargeable battery accommodates multiple lab experiments in several classes each day.
  • Charge the battery using an AC adapter or a USB cable.

Compatible Sensors and Lab Equipment

ComputersComputers and Logger Pro84 sensors

For All Supported Sensors

  • Connect LabQuest Stream via USB. Future software updates will support connection via Bluetooth® technology

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.
