Additional Details

Running a current through this air-core solenoid can generate an external magnetic field for a variety of experiments in magnetism and electricity. Approximately 710 turns of enameled copper wire create an inductance of 5mH, powerful enough to attract small to medium sized ferromagnetic objects. To use, connect a power supply that outputs less than 5A of current to the solenoid.



Products being sold are not toys. They are for Educational / Laboratory use only. They are not for use by children 12 and under.
