Can I use older sensors with LabQuest 2 or other new interfaces?

In general, older sensors from ULIs and Serial Boxes can be used with new interfaces using an adapter that costs $5. The newer style sensors have a feature called Auto ID, and our software instantly recognizes them when connected. Older sensors do not have this feature, and need to be manually configured in the software. Note, that this manual configuration is currently only available in Logger Pro for Mac and Windows and the LabQuest App. The software for Chrome, iOS, and Android does not have the ability to set up a non Auto ID sensor.

To see pictures of all the different model sensors and a complete guide of which adapters are needed for each, see our online adapter wizard at:
