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.

This sensor measures both pulling and pushing forces up to ±50 N.
The Wireless Force Acceleration Sensor simultaneously measures force, acceleration, and rotational velocity without the inconvenience of wires.
