Vernier Software and Technology's LabPro® data acquisition device1 has the cursorily documented2 ability to measure resistance. Here we describe how to build a resistance probe and how to configure Vernier's Logger Pro® data acquisition software to automatically detect and understand the probe. We discuss the range, accuracy, and limitations of this ohm-meter. When this probe is used with voltage and current probes already available from Vernier, the LabPro may be used as a digital multimeter.
