Measuring electrostatic charges is now simple and quantitative with PASCO PASPort Charge Sensor PS2132. It is designed for experiments in electrostatics such as inductive charging, charge production/distribution, and charge on a capacitor. It also allows students to measure electrostatic charges with automatic scaling and polarity.

The PASCO Charge Sensor is also designed with highly efficient input over-voltage protection that makes it virtually blow-out proof and will provide many years of use in the student lab. Great for other high-resistance voltage measurements. It features automatic scaling, eliminating the need for a gain switch. No guessing if a charge is positive or negative – the polarity is shown. It measures both charge and voltage.

When used with the Faraday Ice Pail, the Charge Sensor can measure the total charge on an object by the induction method.

The Charge Sensor can also be used as a high impedance voltmeter (1012 Ω). It includes a 0.9 m shielded cable with alligator clips to eliminate stray fields.

NOTE: The PASCO PASPort sensors require one of the PASPort interfaces in order to use them.
