Spectrum Tube Single Power Supply

With ultra-safe design, this spectrum tube power supply will provide a simple means of viewing gas discharge spectral lines with any of our spectrometers. Unlike other designs, this system has no exposed high voltage. The gas tubes are permanently enclosed in plastic carriers that protect the tubes from breakage. There are no through-the-glass electrodes, so the tubes last far longer than older designs. The Power Supply will energize one tube at a time, and includes storage space for an additional six tubes. All tubes sold separately.

Available February 2010

High Voltage Electrostatics Kit

The High Voltage Electrostatics Kit is an accessory for the Vernier Charge Sensor. Use it with a Faraday pail and the Charge Sensor to investigate the distribution of charge on a sphere, transfer the charge on contact between two spheres and charging by induction. The kit includes an electrostatics voltage source (output 750, 1500, 3000, 6000 VDC) and two conducting spheres. Extremely low output current makes this device safe for classroom use.

Exploring Animated Vector Displays in Logger Pro

There are so many powerful features available in our Logger Pro software, it is easy to miss one. One such feature is the ability to display vectors using an Animated Display meter. Data from accelerometers, force sensors, and motion detectors are perfect for creating a 2-D animated vector display. You can even display an animated vector right on a video used in video analysis.
