DMM_AutorangingEasy to use Auto ranging Digital Multimeter

'Measure Voltage, Current, Resistance & Conductivity'

This tough auto-ranging multimeter features a rubber surround to protect from classroom knocks & bumps together with a wide range of measurement capabilities. It is ergonomically designed to easily fit in the palm of your hand and has a 3-1/2 digital display, measures AC/DC voltage, DC current, ohms and diode check.




 


battery_web5 x Battery modules

This module safely supplies power to the other modules. For safety it is short circuit protected. Battery modules can be linked together to combine voltages. Each module supplies 1.5 Volts and requires one Standard C- type battery.
 
 

electricity_kit_bulb5 x Bulb modules
 
The filament light/lamp converts electrical energy into light. It contains a very thin coil of wire called a filament. This unit uses a standard low voltage miniature MES bulb.
 
 

electricity_kit_buzzer2 x Buzzer modules

The Buzzer module converts electrical energy into sound. It emits an audible tone when connected into a circuit. It is polarity sensitive and must be connected with the correct polarity (+/-) in order to operate. Changing the level of input Voltage produces different sound level
 


electricity_kit_motor2 x Motor modules

The Motor module converts electrical energy into motion. Its propeller rotates at a safe speed. The direction and speed of the rotation depends upon its Voltage & polarity to the Battery module. This module can be connected directly to the battery or operated with any switching module in this kit.

 


electricity_kit_switch2 x Switch modules

The Switch module enables you to ‘Open or Close’ a circuit. This type of switch is commonly used as a household light switch. It has a sturdy ‘On’ or ‘Off’ toggle action with the down position as it’s ‘On’ or closed state and the ‘UP’ position as it’s open state.

   


electricity_kit_push_switch2 x Push Switch modules
 
The Push Switch module enables you to momentarily ‘Open or Close’ a circuit with the push of a button. When pressed the Push Switch module ‘Closes’ the circuit and when not pressed ‘Opens’ the circuit. This type of switch is commonly used in household doorbells, car horns and game controllers.
 
 
 

electricity_kit_magnetic_switchMagnetic Switch module
 
The Magnetic Switch Module is also known as a Reed Switch. This has a pair of contacts which operate when a magnet is passed over them. The contacts close as the magnet is present and open once the magnet is moved away. This type of switch can be found in many security alarm systems as it needs no physical contact to operate. The Magnetic Switch Module can be used in various circuit applications. A suitable magnet is supplied with this kit.
 
 
 

electricity_kit_2_pole_switchTwo Pole Switch module
 
The Two Pole Switch Module, also known as a changeover switch, is a special type of two way switch. Depending on it’s up or down position it allows current to pass either one way or the other. It is commonly used in household wiring where one switch can control two separate parts of a lighting circuit.
 
 
 

electricity_kit_variable_resisitor Variable Resistor module
 
The Variable Resistor Module also called a Potentiometer allows varying levels of electric current to flow through it depending on the position of the control knob. This module can be used as either a speed control for the Motor Module or as a dimmer switch for the Bulb Module. For best results use at least two Battery Cells (3 Volts).
 
 
 


electricity_kit_ldrLight Depentant Resistor module (LDR)
 
The Light Dependant Resistor Module changes its resistance according to the amount of light that falls on its window. The more light the device receives the less resistive the device becomes allowing more current to flow through it. Uses are commonly found in automatic street lighting, intelligent car headlights and modern cameras.
   

electricity_kit_flashing_ledFlashing L.E.D module
 
The Flashing L.E.D Module produces a red flashing light and can be used as a visual indicator to add to your circuit. It is polarity sensitive and must be connected the correct way around in the circuit to operate. This module has an internal resistor for protection and requires a minimum of two battery modules to operate.

   

electricity_kit_white_ledWhite L.E.D module
 
The White L.E.D Module produces a white light and can be used as a visual indicator or torch circuit. It is polarity sensitive and must be connected the correct way around in the circuit to operate. This module has an internal resistor for protection and requires a minimum of two battery modules to operate.
 
 
 


crocs2 Crocodile adaptor clips

Included in the kit are 2 sturdy crocodile adaptor clips. These 'crocs' are perfect for use with 'Conductors & Insulators' experiments where materials can easily be held in place and tested. Each adaptor simply clips onto the end of the connecting lead.



 
Connecting leads x 10

BLACK_LEAD


 

Supplied in each kit are easy to use flexible connecting leads. They are easy to use for all ages and simply plug into each module. Leads can be stacked to create more advanced circuits. .

 
'No more fiddly wires to struggle with, simply Plug & Play'

 
 
Additional modules:
 

To accompany the Electricity Kit+ we also have a range of additional extra modules available. Each module is sold separately and is a fantastic way to design your own 'Electricity Extensions Kit'
