The 850 is PASCO's most flexible interface and is designed specifically to be used in conjunction with the powerful PASCO Capstone software.

The 850 interface boasts four digital inputs, four analogue ports, four PASPORT sensor ports, a 15W function generator, dual high speed function generators and much more.

The four PASPORT sensor ports accept any of the more than 70 available PASPORT sensors. And ScienceWorkshop and PASPORT sensors can be used together meaning that there are over 120 sensors to choose from to meet any application.

The outputs on the 850 include a 15 Watt Function generator which supplies up to ±15V @ 1A, DC and AC. Both the output voltage and current are measured directly by the 850 and can be recorded as data.

Waveforms include sine, triangle, square and ramp (all with DC offset), with a frequency range of 0.001Hz to 100kHz. The two additional Function Generators supply low power at higher frequencies (up to 500 kHz), with independent control of frequency, waveform, amplitude and phase shift.

It's "Universal" because the 850 interface:
• Works with both blue PASPORT and black ScienceWorkshop sensors
• Can be used simultaneously with other PASPORT interfaces
• Is controlled with PASCO's Capstone Software which also controls all other PASCO USB interfaces
• Is a 100 kHz signal generator, 15 W power amplifier, and 10 MHz sample rate oscilloscope all in one device

Powered by PASCO Capstone software
The 850 interface was designed for (and requires the use of) PASCO Capstone software. Together they form the most powerful data acquisition, display and analysis system available for science education.
