The Analog ELVIS Adapter allows PASCO analog ScienceWorkshop sensors to be used with National Instruments’ Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) interface. NI ELVIS combines instrumentation, data acquisition and a prototyping board in one unit. For more information on NI LabVIEW™ and NI ELVIS, visit
To collect data, plug the Analog ELVIS Adapter into the prototyping board and insert a sensor. Connect the adapter to the appropriate I/O ports on ELVIS and the system is ready to use.
Once data has been collected, students can use the power and flexibility of LabVIEW software to display and condition the data as needed. This system provides the perfect opportunity for students to learn about analog data processing techniques. Virtual instruments for using PASCO sensors are available FREE at
Virtual Instrument Library for ScienceWorkshop Sensors (zip). Use these VIs to get started or modify them to fit the needs of your laboratory.
