Solution 37797: What TI Products are compatible with the TI-Innovator System?
What TI Products are compatible with the TI-Innovator™ System?
TI-Innovator™ System Product Compatibility Information.
What TI products will work with the TI-Innovator™ Hub? The TI-Innovator™ Hub is compatible with the following TI products:
- TI-84 Plus CE calculator (OS version 5.2 and higher)
- TI-Nspire™ CX handheld (OS version 4.3 and higher)
- TI-Nspire™ CX CAS handheld (OS version 4.3 and higher)
- TI-Nspire™ CX computer software (Student, Teacher, and TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ – version 4.3 and higher)
Why is the TI-Innovator™ Hub not compatible with the TI-84 Plus or other TI models? (Other examples: TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, TI-89 Titanium, TI-73 Explorer, TI-Nspire with Touchpad)
- The non-supported TI calculators do not have the USB driver support that is needed to work with the TI-Innovator™ Hub.
What programming language is compatible with the TI-Innovator™ Hub?
The TI-Innovator™ Hub can be programmed through the programming language TI BASIC on both the TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire CX calculators. This programming language is used in several TI graphing calculators and is based on the BASIC (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) programming language. BASIC is a family of general-purpose, high-level programming languages whose design philosophy emphasizes ease of use.
In addition, with TI-Nspire™ CX technology you can use LUA programming which is a powerful, fast scripting language.
What sensors, actuators, etc. can I connect to the TI-Innovator™ Hub?
The TI-Innovator™ Hub has two types of connectors:
- Universal 4-pin connector that is compatible with an array of modules.
- Breadboard connector that can be connected to a breadboard for prototyping projects.
Can the TI-Nspire Lab Cradle with Vernier sensors be used while using the TI-Innovator™ Hub?
Yes, the TI-Nspire Lab Cradle can be used concurrently with the TI-Innovator™ Hub on TI-Nspire™ CX Handheld or TI-Nspire™ CX software. To use both the TI-Innovator™ hub and TI-Nspire Lab Cradle at the same time, they must be accessed via a LUA script.
Can I plug Vernier sensors directly into the TI-Innovator™ Hub?
The TI-Innovator™ Hub ports are not directly compatible with the Vernier sensors. The Vernier sensors can be connected to a TI-Nspire Lab Cradle. To use both the TI-Innovator™ hub and TI-Nspire Lab Cradle at the same time, they must be accessed via a LUA script.
Can the TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ System be used while using the TI-Innovator™ Hub?
Yes, students can have their TI-Nspire™ CX handheld connected to the TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ system while using the TI-Innovator™ Hub. The teacher can use TI-Nspire™ CX Navigator™ functionality, including Live Presenter, Screen Capture, Quick Poll, etc. while students are using the TI-Innovator™ Hub.
Can TI Connect™ CE or TI-SmartView™ CE software communicate with the TI-Innovator™ Hub?
The TI-Innovator™ Hub cannot communicate directly with the TI Connect™ CE software or TI-SmartView™ CE software. However, you can use TI Connect™ CE software to write programs for use with the TI-Innovator™ Hub. TI-SmartView™ CE software is a great way to demo the programming steps to your students.
