Featured Equipment

3-Axis Acceleration/Altimeter

Wireless Acceleration/Altimeter

The Wireless 3-Axis Acceleration/Altimeter can remotely log acceleration in three dimensions and altitude, making it ideal for recording data during roller coaster rides.

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.
