PASPORT Force Sensor - PS-2104

Go Wireless!

Also Available — The Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor can perform all of the functions of the PASPORT Force Sensor but also boasts a 3-axis accelerometer and 3-axis gyro as well. Best of all, it connects directly* to your computers, tablets, smartphones and Chromebooks without the need for an interface and with no cables to get in the way.

*Devices without native Bluetooth® Smart connectivity will require a low cost USB adapter - see the product page for details.

Overview

The study of force is critical to many science explorations. An accurate and rugged sensor will ensure your students get the most out of their force experiments. An overload stop in the force beam and a polycarbonate plastic case protect our unit from student abuse.

  • Easy to zero - just press the button and the zero setting is stored digitally. No confusing manipulations of data are necessary.
  • Measures forces in the direction of the sensor - side forces are minimized.

Need greater resolution?  The PASPORT High Resolution Force Sensor is also available.

Typical Applications

  • Measure force exerted by an oscillating mass
  • Measure force during elastic and inelastic collisions
  • Measure force of a swinging pendulum
