This training panel enables hands-on experience with analog and digital sensor applications.

The benchtop panel includes a variety of analog and digital sensors. The system is supplied with a set of experiment materials that affect and reflect the operation of the sensors. Students can connect different components, change physical parameters and measure sensor response. By designing and assembling basic control circuits using the sensors, students learn how digital and analog sensors function. Students also learn how a sensor’s analog signal is converted to a digital output.

This training panel is certified for CE safety compliance.
