A wireless way to measure tension and compression forces in PASCO Structures while also providing acceleration data for all three dimensions plus the resultant. Included in the Building Better Bridges Kit.
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
The Wireless Load Cell and Accelerometer is designed to measure loads in all PASCO Structures Systems. It is particularly useful for measuring vibrations because it includes an accelerometer and has no wires to impede movement.
