VERNIER GO DIRECT LIGHT AND COLOUR SENSOR:
Vernier's Go Direct Light and Colour Sensor is a powerful and versatile light sensor that measures light in the visible to ultraviolet electromagnetic spectrum. An RGB colour sensor detects relative contributions of primary colours in light. The Vernier Go Direct Light and Colour directly connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® or wired via USB to your platform.
The Vernier Go Direct Light and Colour Sensor combines the power of multiple sensors to measure light intensity in the visible range, UVA and UVB portions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Visible light sensor
The fast sampling rate for the visible light sensor (1000 Hz) allows you to observe the flicker of fluorescent lamps.
Red, green, blue (RGB) colour sensor
Use the RGB sensor to determine the relative contribution of red, green and blue light. A built-in white LED provides uniform illumination when the sensor is placed directly on a surface, reducing the effect of variable ambient light.
Ideal for experiments using UV lamps, the UVA sensor responds primarily to UVA radiation (peak response at 365nm).
The UVB sensor responds primarily to UVB radiation (peak response at 330nm) and is excellent for experiments in which sunlight is the UV source.
Vernier's Go Direct Light and Colour Sensor can be used in a variety of experiments:
• Explore light intensity as a function of distance.
• Conduct polarized filter studies.
• Observe the flicker of fluorescent lamps.
• Perform reflectivity studies, including colour analysis.
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.
GAPRO 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.
GAPRO is compatible with most Vernier sensors and multiple operating systems and devices.
