Here we look at how to use analog Vernier sensors with Arduino. (Currently most Vernier sensors appear to be analog). The Vernier.com website has a lot of information about this topic. There are three ways to connect Vernier probes to an Arduino:
Buy a Vernier shield from Sparkfun
Buy connector break-out boards that are compatible with your Arduino breadboards
Buy inexpensive connectors and attach your wiring directly to the connectors.
In this module we illustrate all three techniques, and include a simple project that uses a Vernier light gauge as the basis for an analog light gauge.
The presentation material and the code can be downloaded at Vernier Shield.
