The Wireless AC/DC Module is a Bluetooth Low Energy wireless signal generator designed for use with PASCO’s Modular Circuits. The AC/DC Module can act as a DC power supply, as well as generate Sine, Triangle, and Square AC signals. A built-in rechargeable battery provides long lasting power for your basic circuits, and is rechargeable using the included USB cable. An internal voltage sensor monitors the output voltage at all times. The Wireless AC/DC Module is controllable in either PASCO Capstone or SPARKvue software. This latest circuit module expands the number and type of experiments you can perform with Modular Circuits including Ohm’s Law, RC Circuit Time Constant, and LRC labs.
Programmable using Blockly programming in PASCO Capstone 2 software.
