Lamp Brightness Experiment

Code: ELB8000

Students often think that the brightness of a lamp is only dependent on the current flowing through it. The unit allows the teacher to safely switch a 12V lamp in series with a mains lamp and study the current flow through them.

 

Description

This includes kit includes the use of a safety mains lamp socket, which has a built in a switching system that only allows it to be switched on when a lamp is inserted.  We have also included two switches, which must be pressed simultaneously to route the mains current through the low voltage lamp. Furthermore, the switches are sited at opposite ends of the case, requiring two hands to operate them.  However, it must be appreciated that you are working with potentially lethal voltages and currents and therefore extra care should be taken.

  • Supplied with 1 x 240V 100W lamp and 1 x 12V 5W lamp and mains power lead.

Code: OPR1221

Pack of 10 12V 21W Small Bayonet Cap (SBC) Radial Filament Lamps.
Our additional Pylons pack contains 5 thick card sheets which once cut-out produces 5 pylons to be used in conjunction with our National Grid Kit to give your pupils a clearer explanation on how the experiment works.

Code: ERS8050

A six-decade resistance substitution box designed for use in educational establishments.

Code: EPU0113

A compact power supply offering 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 volts at currents of up to 5A. Both dc and ac outputs may be used simultaneously up to the rated output. The output is protected by a push button cut-out. The unit is 2A fused on the back panel and comes complete with a moulded mains lead and plug. 4 units are designed to fit in a shallow Gratnell tray.
