About the New Sensors
The palm-sized, impeller-type Anemometer measures wind speed in the range of 0.5 to 30 m/s (1 to 67 mph) and is designed specifically for students of all ages to conduct wind study measurements in the field. A standard camera mounts on the back and an accessory rod allows students to position it in wind tunnels or in front of fans for wind turbine experiments.
The High Current Sensor is used to measure current in the range of -10 to +10 Ampere. The sensor can be used in experiments that involve currents larger than 1 A, such as solar panels, hand generators, etc.
The 30-Volt Voltage Probe is used to measure voltages in the wide range of -30 to +30 volts. It is recommended to use this sensor in experiments that involve voltages larger than 10 volts, such as when working with large solar panels.
Vernier’s new Melt Station, designed for college organic chemistry, measures the melting temperature of solid substances. The Melt Station uses a built-in RTD temperature detector over a range of 30 degrees C to 260 degrees C. It includes a high-quality 6X viewing lens for clear observation, an adjustable tilt allowing for optimal viewing angle, and a cooling fan that reduces the amount of time needed between tests. Each Melt Station comes with 100 standard capillary tubes.
