Vernier Energy Sensor

Vernier Energy Sensor

Vernier Energy Sensor

$88.00

The Vernier Energy Sensor offers an easy way to quantify voltage, current, power, and energy output of small wind turbines and solar panels such as those used in our KidWind Experiment Kits.

ORDER CODE: VES-BTA Categories ,

Setting up a circuit to study renewable energy systems such as wind turbines or solar panels is easy with the Vernier Energy Sensor. Simply connect a source such as a small wind turbine or solar panel to one side and a load such as the Variable Load or a resistor on Vernier Resistor Board to the other side.

The Energy Sensor measures the current and voltage of the system. Data-collection and analysis software, such as Logger Pro or LabQest App can then calculate the power and energy output.

Compatibility Notes

  1. Connect LabQuest Stream via USB. Future software updates will support connection via Bluetooth® technology
  2. Connect LabQuest Stream via USB. Wireless connection is not supported.
  3. This interface can collect voltage data or current data but not both simultaneously. As a result, the software cannot calculate resistance and power data.
