Go Direct® Static Charge (VR153096)



The Go Direct Static Charge Sensor is completely wireless and provides educators and students with enhanced accuracy in measurements of positive and negative charges. Unlike a traditional electroscope, this sensor offers a means for quantitative measurement and analysis of positive and negative charges of objects that would not be possible in a traditional lab—such as measuring the charge on a balloon.

Students can visualise their charge readings in real time in our Vernier Graphical Analysis™ and Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro apps, so they can immediately analyse experimental data that they can also export to other applications. When this sensor is coupled with our Electrostatics Kit, students can participate in new, deeper levels of experimentation that would not be possible in traditional labs.

Rechargeable Battery—Ready When You Are
The robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation when using the sensor wirelessly. Monitor battery life directly from our free Vernier Graphical Analysis™ app, as well as Graphical Analysis Pro and LabQuest® 3. 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.

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