Description

Overview

Measuring electrostatic charges is now simple and quantitative with our Charge Sensor. Think of it as a highly sensitive electroscope that isn’t affected by humidity and indicates whether a charge is positive or negative. Great for other high-resistance voltage measurements too. Automatic scaling eliminates the need for a gain switch. Highly efficient input overvoltage protection makes it virtually blow-out proof, providing many years of student use.

  • No guessing if a charge is positive or negative – the polarity is shown.
  • Measures both charge and voltage.

Special Features

  • Includes a 0.9m shielded cable with alligator clips — eliminate stray fields for quick experiment setup.

Typical Applications

  • Measure charge by induction
  • Quantify the charge on a capacitor
  • Discover the charge distribution on a conducting sphere

Includes

  • 0.9m shield cable with alligator clips
