    Science Equipment

    Hi Everyone,

    I will be attending Bett on Friday with a couple of teachers and one of them is the science co-coordinator who is looking
    for hardware solutions such as data logging etc, can anybody suggest or recomend a supplier that will be there demonstrating
    that type of equipment.

    We use PasPort; bought through SciChem.com.

    Lots of sensors, a variety on interfaces, and a usable software suite. The handheld loggers (Xplorer GLX) do suffer from a cr@p battery pack. Could be exacerbated by the fact that we almost always use them on the bench with the charger, rather than "in a field" on batteries.

    We (and our chemistry dept) like the uLog USB sensors from LogIT. They tell the computer they're a HID and send keystrokes to the Sensorlab app. No drivers and the software's cross-platform (Windows, Linux, OS X).

    It's that rare bit of curriculum hardware/software that Just Works.

    Are these all aimed at secondary?

    Hmmm... For datalogging to be useful, it is going to be somewhat complex. I don't understand how to work the stuff, I just hand them the instructions...

    Seems a bit of a"Permissions" issue with Win7 that I've found this morning.
