New Test and Measurement Catalogue

We have just launched our new catalogue (Jan to Jun 2001) containing complete details of our entire product range. If you have purchased a Pico product in the last 3 years, you should be on our mailing list and receive a copy by post in the next few weeks.

If you are not on our postal mailing list and would like a new brochure, please contact your local distributor or fill in the online request form at http://www.picotech.com/brochure.html

New DrDAQ Sensor Released

The reed switch sensor is the latest add-on for our popular DrDAQ data logger. It can be used to detect the presence of a magnetic field such as that from a bar magnet or an electromagnet. Alternatively, a simple external switch can be wired to the internal screw terminals. It has a fast response time of 2 ms so it can be used as an alternative to a light gate for timing applications. Other uses include monitoring the amount of time a door is left open or a machine is left running.

New Science Experiments

The latest additions to our library of free science experiments include:

  • Landing on a Saturn Moon
  • Investigating Global Warming
  • Solar Tracking Project
  • Scalextric Subaru challenge 2
