The Vernier Breadboard Cables are fairly simple. One end of the cable is either a British Telecom Analog (BTA) plug or a British Telecom Digital (BTD) plug that connects to a Vernier interface. At the other end of the cable, individual wires have been exposed so that it can be connected to a standard electronics prototyping board or similar device (like a National Instruments ELVIS).
If you are having difficulties with a Breadboard Cable, verify the following:
1. The Breadboard Cable is securely seated in the prototyping board.
2. The BTA/BTD plug is seated correctly in the Vernier interface, e.g. LabQuest Mini or SensorDAQ.
3. The correct pins are being accessed on the prototyping board; pin out specifications can be found below.
Vernier Breadboard Cables provide an easy way to connect homemade sensors to a Vernier interface.
