TI-SensorLink Adapter

What is TI-SensorLink Adapter?

TI-SensorLink Adapter is an accessory to TI-Innovator™ Hub to support the use of Vernier analog sensors with the Hub. TI-SensorLink expands STEM project possibilities by connecting select Vernier Sensors to TI-SensorLink, then to TI-Innovator™ Hub.

Note: TI-SensorLink is not a data collection solution. USB connected probes or TI-Nspire™ Lab Cradle are a superior solution for pure data collection and analysis.
