CBL™ 2 data collection device
An easy way to collect and analyze real-world data.
The CBL™ 2 data collection device, the second generation of the CBL™ device, is a portable, handheld, battery-operated data-collection device for gathering real-world data. Data collected with a CBL™ 2 device can be retrieved and analyzed by TI graphing calculators. With the CBL™ 2 device and appropriate sensors, you can measure motion, temperature, light, sound, pH, force and much more.
Over 50 sensors from TI and Vernier Software & Technology are available making the CBL™ 2 data collection device ideal for middle school math, science, biology, chemistry, physics and high school math. Students discover how math and science affect the world around them by developing hypotheses, conducting experiments and forming conclusions.
The CBL™ 2 device uses FLASH technology, allowing you to upgrade to new software without buying a new device. As future software upgrades become available, you can download the software to your PC and then use the TI-GRAPH LINK™ cable to upgrade your CBL™ 2 device.
Upgrade to the current version of Vernier EasyData® or Vernier DataMate® apps and increase the functionality of your CBL™ 2 device so you can store multiple experiment trials, experiment setups and other programs.
