Vernier Circuit Board 2


The Vernier Circuit Board 2 is a convenient platform for circuit labs, from basic series and parallel circuits to RLC circuits. Many components are provided for experimentation, and additional components can be added to expand the capability of this useful board.

The Vernier Circuit Board 2 is a basic electricity lab on a board. The turret terminals for every component make it easy to connect basic series and parallel circuits, examine the behavior of different components, and investigate RLC circuits. The Vernier Circuit Board 2 includes 10 bulbs, a resettable fuse, three powering options, 10 alligator clip leads, terminal clips to add your own components, and pre-installed components.
