What sensors and interfaces can be used with a Chromebook?

Graphical Analysis for Chrome version 4.1, released September 2017, will work with the following Vernier devices:

Go Direct Temperature Probe, order code GDX-TMP, $59
Go Direct Gas Pressure Sensor, order code GDX-GP, $79
Go Direct Drop Counter, order code GDX-DC, $99
Go Direct pH Sensor, order code GDX-PH, $79
Go Direct Electrode Amplifier, order code GDX-EA, $49
Go Direct 3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor, order code GDX-3MG, $59
Go Direct Force and Acceleration Sensor, order code GDX-FOR, $99
Go Direct Conductivity Probe, order code GDX-CON, $89
Go Direct Radiation Monitor, order code GDX-RAD, $169
Go Direct Constant Current System, order code GDX-CCS, $59
Go Direct Voltage Probe, order code GDX-VOLT, $49
Go Direct ORP Sensor, order code GDX-ORP, $89
Go Direct Colorimeter, order code GDX-COL, $115

Go!Temp, order code GO-TEMP, $39
Go!Motion, order code GO-MOT, $119
Go!Link, order code GO-LINK, $61
LabQuest Stream, order code LQ-STREAM, $199
LabQuest 2, order code LABQ2, $329
LabQuest Mini, order code LQ-MINI, $149
Original LabQuest, order code LABQ, $299

At this time, the list of sensors supported by Graphical Analysis is not quite the same as the sensors supported by the interfaces. For example, while LabQuest interfaces support the Drop Counter and other digital sensors, Graphical Analysis does not yet support the needed data collection modes, so some digital sensors are not supported. Later releases of Graphical Analysis will support these additional sensors.

When used on a Chromebook, the Go!Link and LabQuest interfaces work with the following sensors. Additional sensors will be added to this list on later releases. Go!Link data rate is limited to 50 Hz at this time.
25-g Accelerometer, order code ACC-BTA, $92
