LogIT – black box datalogger

Data logging technology needs to be astoundingly simple to find an easy place in a practical lesson. When there’s pouring and heating going on, the LogIT Black box datalogger is a remarkable piece of technology that fits. There are no buttons to press, no drivers to install and no power brick to connect, just a USB cable and up to three sensors and then you are working. It’s happy with existing LogIT sensors that I’ve had since the dawn of the National Curriculum. Frankly there is little to say: it lets you measure with speed and can handle the trickier classroom tasks to do with magnetic induction or the flicker frequency of a fluorescent lamp. The LogIT Black Box comes with a booklet of useful, clever and activities to try like showing the insulating property of carbon dioxide gas. [link above]
