Featured Equipment

3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor

Wireless Magnetic Field Sensor

This 3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor can sense the Earth’s magnetic field, magnetic fields from current-carrying coils, and permanent magnets.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
