The Smart Gate
New for 2019 - the Wireless Smart Gate! The Wireless Smart Gate has the same features as the PASPORT Smart Gate but it does not require an interface. Instead it connects directly to your computers, Chromebooks, tablets or smartphones either through Bluetooth 4 or via USB.
Smart Gates are an advancement in the design of the traditional photogate. Both the PASPORT Smart Gate and the Wireless Smart Gate can be configured for all of the traditional uses of a standard photogate, and with their new features - experiments that a standard photogate cannot do. Smart Gates contain two photogates spaced 1.5 cm apart which gives them a more accurate measurement of speed over any traditional photogate. The rise and fall times of Smart Gate measurements are faster than any other photogate, which results in more accurate timing. Smart Gates also include an auxiliary port for daisy chaining an extra Photogate Head or a Time of Flight Accessory. Use the built in photogate tape guide to use our Mylar Photogate Tape for measuring the speed and acceleration of fast moving objects that are too large to pass through the Smart Gates. Smart Gates also include a laser switch which enables a simple laser pointer to be used as the beam. This is useful for measuring timing of objects that are very large, or when you need a very long beam spacing.
Smart Gates have the same mounting footprint as our traditional photogate head, and are compatible with all of PASCO's photogate compatible apparatus.
