A PowerLab requires a USB 2 or 3 interface to connect to your computer.

Research PowerLabs (PowerLab C, 35 Series and 26 Series) are designed to function with LabChart 8 or LabChart Lightning software. Education PowerLabs are designed to function with LabStation, Lt or LabChart for Education software. In most circumstances, any PC or Mac desktop or laptop computer with a recent Intel or AMD processor and 2 GB or more of system memory will be sufficient. Please see the system requirements for LabChart for more specific details.
