   Getting Started With Wireless Sensors: Chromebooks

1. Upgrade your Chromebooks to Bluetooth BLE

Give your Chromebooks the power to connect to our Bluetooth® Smart devices wirelessly.

Because Chromebooks do not natively have Bluetooth Smart (BLE) connectivity, this simple USB adapter installs the drivers necessary to connect your Chromebooks to our Wireless Sensors and to connect the AirLink wirelessly if desired. Note: Please ensure that your operating system has been updated to the latest version of the Chrome OS.

3. Select your wireless sensors

Visit our wireless sensor page to see our growing range of sensors.

PASCO’s Wireless Sensors communicate directly with your chromebooks in real time or can log measurements remotely for long-term recordings bypassing the need for an interface or datalogger. In addition to the wireless sensors, you may want to also consider the new Wireless Smart Cart as well as the Wireless Spectrometer.

4. Enable all PASport sensors to communicate wirelessly with the Airlink

The very affordable PASCO Airlink greatly expands the measurement opportunities for the Chromebook.  The Airlink seamlessly connects to each of the 80 plus PASport sensors to provide wireless communication.  Multiple Airlinks and wireless sensors can be used simultaneously during a single recording session.

5. Add Free Interactive Onscreen Lessons

PASCO has a broad and going range of interactive on-screen lessons called SPARKlabs. There are currently 100’s of SPARKlabs available for download, click here for the complete library.
