Principle of Operation - Force Sensor
Technote: How do the PASCO force sensors work?
The PASCO force sensors employ four strain gauges epoxied to a binocular dual-beam made from annealed aluminum. The strain gauges are wired to form a full-bridge circuit that is driven by a constant voltage source. The voltage across the bridge circuit is proportional to the applied force.
Designed to measure both pulling and pushing forces allowing labs from cart collisions to tug-of-war.
Designed to measure both pulling and pushing forces allowing labs from cart collisions to tug-of-war. ScienceWorkshop version.
This sensor measures both pulling and pushing forces up to ±50 N.
The PASPORT High Resolution Force Sensor is designed to make very high resolution measurements of pulling and pushing forces.
The Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor simultaneously measures force, acceleration, and rotational velocity without the inconvenience of wires.
