Educational voltage and current sensors don’t have to look serious to have seriously powerful capabilities. We provide user-friendly voltage and current sensors that generate live data to improve students’ contextual understanding of electrical concepts. This page provides a comparison chart of our offerings to help you make an informed purchase.

PASCO Sensor Feature PASCO Interface Purpose
UI-5100
UI-5100, CI-6556
Voltage
Current
550/850 interfaces or legacy 500/750 interfaces
  • Higher sample rates up to 10 MHz (depends on interface)
UI-5100
UI-5100, PS-2184
Voltage
Current Probe
550/850 interfaces or legacy 500/750 interfaces
  • Higher sample rates up to 10 MHz (depends on interface)
  • Ideal for LRC circuits
PS-3211
PS-3212
Wireless Voltage
Wireless Current
No interface required
  • Bluetooth 4.0 required
  • Having a wireless current sensor ends confusion about the path of the current in the circuit.
PS-2115 Voltage/Current Any PASPORT interface, 550, or 850
  • Gives voltage and current in one sensor. However, sample rate is limited to 1000 Hz, not the best suited for high frequency circuits.
PS-2193 High Current Any PASPORT interface, 550, or 850
  • Use when you need to measure high currents.
  • Limited to 1000 Hz.
PS-2160 Galvanometer Any PASPORT interface, 550, or 850
  • Use when you need to measure small currents or voltages.
  • Limited to 1000 Hz.
