Use Vernier's High Current Sensor in experiments that involve currents larger than 1 A, such as solar panels, hand generators and other alternative energy projects.
The High Current Sensor measures currents from -10 to +10 Amps. It uses a Hall Effect chip so that it does not add a resistive element to your circuit. A metal shield over the Hall Effect chip reduces the influence of external magnets. A replaceable fuse protects the equipment and circuit.

• High Current Sensor range ±10 A
• Maximum voltage input ±40 V
• Supply voltage 5 VDC
• Resolution: 4.9 mA
• Output voltage range 0 – 5 V
• Replaceable fuse 10 A
• Current in amperes:
     - Slope 4.51 A/V
     - Intercept –11.31 A

    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
    ACSPH108 - Gravity and electromagnetism - Electromagnetism - Magnets, magnetic materials, moving charges and current­carrying wires experience a force in a magnetic field; this force is utilised in DC electric motors
    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
