Wireless Load Cell and Accelerometer - PS-3216

PS3216_MAIN.jpg

The Wireless Load Cell and Accelerometer is a low cost option for Structures System and a key part of our Building Better Bridges Kit

Overview

Typical Applications

  • Basic studies of tension and compression in structures (as part of the Building Better Bridges Kit)
  • Investigating static and dynamic loading
  • Observing forces and acceleration present in structures
  • Discovering the resonant modes of structures when driven

Special Features

  • An integral part of our bridge building module
  • Low cost
  • Built in accelerometer measures accelerations in three dimensions plus the resultant
  • No wires, making it easier than ever to integrate into structures beams
