The Wireless Smart Gate has all the features of the wired Smart Gate plus the added flexibility of wireless connection to your data collection system.
Photogate that can be connected to any PASPORT interface, has auxiliary port to daisy chain gates, double beams for accurate speed measurement, and a special photogate tape slot.
The Mini Launcher launches metal spheres up to 2.0 m high to produce highly accurate and repeatable data for classroom projectile analysis.
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.
