Wireless Voltage Sensor - PS-3211

PS3211_MAIN.jpg

Overview

Ideal for exploring the fundamental concepts of electricity and exploring circuit concepts.   Measure voltages of up to 15 V with built-in protection for the sensor against overload. 

Combine with the Wireless Current Sensor for explorations of Ohm's Law, series and parallel circuits and much more.

The Wireless Voltage Sensor includes shrouded-banana to alligator-clip test leads,one red and one black

Special Features

  • Simplicity: just pair and go, no cables and adapters to manage
  • Variable sampling rate for capturing small fast changes or experiments that run for hours, days, or weeks.
  • High speed sampling available via USB connection in "burst mode"
  • Long-lasting rechargeable battery.
  • Logging mode - collect data directly on the sensor for long term experiments.

Bluetooth 4 Connectivity

Required Software:

PASCO products that use Bluetooth® 4 technology - wireless sensors, smart carts, and the AirLink Interface - require the latest versions of our software. PASCO Capstone 1.10.1 is available for Mac and Windows. SPARKvue 3.0.1 is available for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Chromebooks.

Compatibility/System requirements

Any current model Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or Android phone will support direct connection to PASCO Bluetooth 4 devices. Also, any Windows 10 device w/ Creators Ediction 1703 or later will support direct connection.

All other windows computers/tablets, all Chromebooks and older Macs currently require the PS-3500 USB Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter to connect to PASCO’s Bluetooth 4 devices.

Full compatibility details are available, including compatibility information for older computing devices.

Datalogging

Independent datalogging 

Long term data collection directly on the sensor

In logging mode wireless sensors collect data to their onboard memory for hours, days, weeks or even months at a time without needing to be connected to a computer, tablet, Chromebook or smartphone.

When the experiment is concluded, simply connect the sensor to a device running PASCO software and download all the measurements it recorded.
