1 Minimum # of data points with all measurements enabled, actual results depend on enabled measurements.

2 Continuous use in a connected state until battery failure, actual results will depend on sample rate, active measurements, and battery condition.

3 Logging until battery failure, actual results will depend on sample rate, active measurements, and battery condition.

* Normal classroom use is the sensor in active use for 20min/lab for 120 lab periods/yr.

Experiment Library

Perform the following experiments and more with the Wireless Magnetic Field Sensor.
Visit PASCO’s Experiment Library to view all activities for this product.

Electromagnetic Induction

In this lab, students will use an induction wand, rotary motion sensor, variable gap magnet, and magnetic field sensor to determine how the rate of change of magnetic flux through a coil affects the magnitude and direction of…

Seafloor Spreading and Plate Tectonics

In this lab, students use a magnetic field sensor to explore the movement of Earth’s crustal plates and the evidence that is used to support the theory of plate tectonics.

Earth’s Magnetic Field

In this lab, students use a magnetic field sensor to visualize the magnetic field lines surrounding Earth.

Magnetic Field: Coil

In this lab, students will use current and magnetic field sensors to understand some of the factors affecting the electromagnetic field strength within a solenoid.

Magnetic Field Strength

In this lab, students use a 2-axis magnetic field sensor and the AC/DC electronics laboratory to determine how the strength of the magnetic field at the center of a current-carrying coil depends on the coil current and radius.

Magnetic Field: Permanent Magnet

In this lab, students will use magnetic field sensors to investigate the magnetic field strength of a permanent magnet as a function of distance from the magnet.
