SmartQ Current Sensors

Use in conjunction with voltage sensors to investigate Ohm’s law, power and circuits. This high range sensor is very good for measuring start up current in incandescent, filament lamps and for studying fuses.

A Sensor For Every Activity

The SmartQ range of Current sensors includes +/-100mA, +/-1A and +/-10A variations to suit your experiment needs.

The +/-10A range sensor is very good for measuring start up current in incandescent, filament lamps and for studying fuses.

Practical Teaching

The SmartQ range of Current Sensors can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:

  • What changes the current in a circuit e.g. when using light bulbs?
  • Good and bad conductors
  • Can you use bulb brightness to measure current?
  • Ohm’s law
  • Series and parallel circuits
  • Start up current of a lamp
  • Electrical component characteristics e.g. a light dependent resistor
  • Capacitor discharge, charge and energy stored
  • Power
  • Heat and electric current
  • Avagadro’s number
  • Effect of current on Electromagnet strength Specific Heat Capacity for a liquid or solid
