Replacement for CI-6527 Type sensors

How can I get data into my interface or computer that I used to use the CI-6527 sensor?



While we no longer make this sensor, it is still possible to use some other currently sold sensors to get data into your interface and software.  Using the CI-6605A, you can unplug the stainless steel temperature probe (PS-2153 portion), and insert the plug that would have gone into the top socket of the CI-6527A.  Another option, if you are able to use PASPORT or wireless sensors, the PS-3222 Wireless Temperature Link can receive the 3.5 mm plug that would have gone into the top of the CI-6527A.  This sensor requires the use of a BT 4.0 type connection.  The following link can help determine if your system and software are able to receive signal from this sensor.  www.pasco.com/compatibility 

Below is a table of the PASPORT sensors that can receive the 3.5 mm stereo thermistor plug.

At the bottom of this article is a list of the interfaces that can directly receive this inputs from the 3.5 mm stereo plug.
