Go Direct™ Light and Colour Sensor

£150.00

Description

The 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.
UV sensor
Ideal for experiments using UV lamps, the UV sensor responds primarily to UVA radiation (peak response at 365 nm).

The Go Direct Light and Colour Sensor can be used in a variety of experiments:

  • Explore light intensity as a function of distance.
  • Conduct polarised filter studies.
  • Observe the flicker of fluorescent lamps.
  • Perform reflectivity studies, including colour analysis.

Rechargeable Battery—Ready When You Are
The Go Direct robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation. Monitor battery life directly from our free Graphical Analysis™ 4 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
Our Go Direct™ Light and Colour Sensor connects directly to your mobile device, Chromebook, or computer using our free Graphical Analysis™ 4 app—no additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. 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.
