Tech Note 1323 Detail

Smart Timer not giving correct results.

Affected Products:

ME-8930 Smart Timer
ME-8932 Smart Timer Photogate System

Problem/Symptom:
Smart Timer not giving correct results.

PASCO Solution:

The picket fence that must be used with the ME-8930 Smart Timer or the ME-8932 Smart Timer System must be the picket fence that ships with the Smart Timer. Unlike the photogate modes that are used within our software or the ME-9403A photogate timing system, the ME-8930 measures the time between leading edges on the picket fence. This is why the two bar level on the picket fence must be used when using the ME-8930 Smart Timer. Use of a solid flag or the IDS picket fence ME-9804 will not give the correct results. You must use the type of picket fence that ships with the ME-8930 or the type that is provided in the ME-8933 Picket Fences (Smart Timer).
