Go!Link

Vernier’s low-cost USB sensor interface connects Vernier sensors to a computer or to a Chromebook.

The Go!Link USB sensor interface is a quick and affordable way to get started with data-collection technology. It’s a single-channel interface that connects most Vernier sensors to your computer or Chromebook USB port.

Setting up data-collection experiments is as simple as 1-2-3:

  1. Plug the Go!Link to a USB port and a sensor into the Go!Link.
  2. Start the data-logging software.
  3. Click on the “Collect” button to see a real-time graph!

Compatible Sensors

ComputersComputers and Graphical Analysis 4 for Computers59 sensors

Supported Sensors

Compatibility Notes

  1. This interface can only collect acceleration data from one axis.
  2. Maximum data-collection rate on the interface may limit the sensor's response in collision experiments.
  3. Requires a BNC electrode
  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. This interface can collect voltage data or current data but not both simultaneously. Software cannot calculate resistance and power data.
  8. This interface/software combination can only collect force data; displacement measurements are not supported.
