Featured Equipment

Force Acceleration Sensor

Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor

The Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor simultaneously measures force, acceleration, and rotational velocity without the inconvenience of wires.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
