High Current Sensor
Recommended for College and High School. Interface and software sold separately.
Use the High Current Sensor in experiments that involve currents larger than 1 A, such as solar panels, hand generators, and other alternative energy projects.
The High Current Sensor has a range of ±10 A. Current is measured with a Hall Effect sensor, which uses the magnetic field created by the current and therefore does not add a resistive element to the circuit. A metal shield over the Hall Effect chip reduces the influence of external magnets. A replaceable fuse protects the equipment and circuit.
