VinciLab 2 is the new version of our popular data logger VinciLab. At first sight, the new VinciLab 2 resembles the previous model. It can also be used in the classroom and in the field:
- wireless via Wi-Fi, and
- wired via USB,
but it has been improved in many ways. VinciLab 2 runs on Android 11 and offers standard apps for setting up the device and connections, managing files, browsing through images, or playing videos, and the new Coach 7 app for data collection, graphing and processing. The new device is faster and its touch screen is more responsive. The two digital sensor inputs are replaced by Control Output and HDMI port. The support of USB communication between VinciLab 2 and a computer has been improved and is more user-friendly.
VinciLab 2 is a very powerful and versatile data logger for High School to University level.
It can be used with Mac and Windows computers, Chromebooks, mobile devices, wireless via Wi-Fi, or wired via USB.
It is a handheld Android device equipped with two processors, a main processor to control the device’s operating system and screen, and a measurement processor, which allows very fast data collection with up to 1 MHz sampling frequency (1000000 samples per second).
For connecting sensors, VinciLab 2 has four A1-A4 BT sensor inputs. It also has a built-in microphone and a 3-axis accelerometer.
The D1 BT input becomes the Control Output, meant for connecting the new CMA Control Box (available in June 2023) and to control its digital outputs (similar to the outputs of CoachLab II+) or to generate analog signals.
The D2 input becomes dedicated HDMI output useful for presentation on a big screen.
VinciLab 2 has a 5” (capacitive) color touch screen that provides a high-resolution display offering easy control of the device.
The Android apps, preinstalled on the device, offer tools for setting up the device and wireless connections, managing user files, browsing the web, watching video files, etc. The preinstalled Coach 7 allows the collecting, graphing, and processing of measured data when the VinciLab 2 works standalone.
The support of USB communication between VinciLab 2 and a computer has been improved and is more user-friendly.
Mini C port is now used for communication and powering.
The VinciLab 2 package contains VinciLab, a Power adapter, a USB cable, and VinciLab User’s Guide.
