Vernier Charge Sensor


SchoolMart Part #: V-CRG-BTA Brand:


Numerical measurements improve many electrostatics experiments such as charging by induction, charging by friction, and charging by contact. The sensor can also be used to measure charge polarity.

An extremely high impedance voltage sensor with a 0.01µf input capacitor makes these measurements possible. The sensor has three operating ranges and a zeroing switch to discharge the input capacitor.

A special low-leakage BNC/Alligator clip cable is included.

± 0.5 V (+/- 5 nC)
± 2 V (+/- 20 nC)
± 10 V (+/- 97 nC)
Typical bias current = 0.005pA
Input Capacitance: 0.01 µF
