USB Bluetooth Adapter



Our new wireless sensors, Smart Cart and AirLink interface utilize Bluetooth Smart for wireless connectivity. Windows computers, Chromebooks and older Macs can utilize these devices with the help of this low cost adapter.

Simply connect it to an open USB port and then up to three PASCO devices (wireless sensors, Smart Carts, AirLinks) can be connected via Bluetooth.

Any current model Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or Android phone will support direct connection to PASCO Bluetooth Smart devices.

Windows computers/tablets, Chromebooks and older Macs currently require the PS-3500 USB Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter to connect to PASCO’s Bluetooth Smart devices.

Full compatibility details are available, including compatibility information for older computing devices.



When SPARKvue or PASCO Capstone is instatlled on a Windows computer, the drivers for the BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) adapter PS-3500 are installed on the computer. If the PS-3500 is placed into a USB port in the Windows computer prior to the installation of SPARKvue or PASCO Capstone, Windows will install the incorrect driver. If you find that the wireless sensors or Airlink PS-3200 are not recognized within SPARKvue or PASCO Capstone, please try the following to direct Windows to the correct drivers.
