Vernier Variable Load


The Vernier Variable Load is used in conjunction with the Vernier Energy Sensor to provide a range of resistive loads for projects such as wind turbines or solar panels.

Students can adjust the potentiometer to provide resistances between 6 and 255 Ω, allowing them to determine the optimal load on a system.


  • Maximum Input: 0.22 A
  • Resistance: 6 – 255 Ω
