VERNIER GO DIRECT ENERGY SENSOR
The Vernier Go Direct Energy Sensor quantifies the voltage, current, power and energy output of small wind turbines and solar panels such as those used in our KidWind Experiment Kits. It connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® wireless technology or wired via USB to your device.

Simpler to use than a multimeter, the Vernier Go Direct Energy Sensor measures the voltage and current of a renewable energy system. Connect a source such as a small wind turbine or solar panel and Vernier's free Graphical Analysis app calculates the power and energy output.
For simple energy measurements Vernier's Go Direct Energy Sensor includes a fixed load of 30Ω.
For more advanced experiments electrical contacts are built into the sensor to connect to an external load such as the Variable Load, a resistor on Vernier Resistor Board, a water pump or lights.

Vernier's Go Direct Energy Sensor is ideal for a wide variety of renewable energy experiments:
• Investigate the electrical energy generated by a wind turbine or solar panel.
• Explore the effect of load on wind turbine or solar panel output.
• Test blade design variables and evaluate data to determine optimal blade design.

Rechargeable Battery — Ready When You Are
The Vernier Go Direct™ robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation. Monitor battery life directly from Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app Should the battery run low simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting — no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.

Wired or Wireless — The Flexibility to Choose
Vernier's Go Direct™ sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook or computer using Vernier's free Graphical Analysis™ app. No additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Vernier Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.

Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro includes all the features of the free Vernier Graphical Analysis app, plus enhanced functions for more advanced analysis. Its illustrative experiment videos and interactive graphing capabilities inspire students to explore crucial scientific concepts and analyze data in new complex and insightful ways.
Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro is compatible with most Vernier sensors and multiple operating systems and devices.

      This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
      ACSPH044 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Circuit analysis and design involve calculation of the potential difference across, the current in, and the power supplied to, components in series, parallel and series/parallel circuits
      ACSPH039 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Energy is conserved in the energy transfers and transformations that occur in an electrical circuit
      ACSPH041 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Energy is required to separate positive and negative charge carriers; charge separation produces an electrical potential difference that can be used to drive current in circuits
      ACSPH042 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Power is the rate at which energy is transformed by a circuit component; power enables quantitative analysis of energy transformations in the circuit
      ACSPH043 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Resistance for ohmic and non­ohmic components is defined as the ratio of potential difference across the component to the current in the component
      ACSPH040 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - The energy available to charges moving in an electrical circuit is measured using electric potential difference, which is defined as the change in potential energy per unit charge between two defined points in the circuit
      ACSSU219 - Physical Sciences - Alternative Energies - Energy from a variety of sources can be used to generate electricity
      ACSSU097 - Physical Sciences - Electrical Circuits - Electrical energy can be transferred and transformed in electrical circuits and can be generated from a range of sources
      ACSSU155 - Physical Sciences - Energy Forms - Energy appears in different forms, including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and energy transformations and transfers cause change within systems
