Tech Note 313 Detail

Unresponsive Force Sensor

Affected Products:

CI-6746 Economy Force Sensor
PS-2104 PASPORT Force Sensor

Problem/Symptom:
The force sensor reads a constant value independent of the applied force.

PASCO Solution:
  1. Loosen the hook on the force sensor 1/8 of a turn.
  2. Check for responsivity when applying a changing force.
  3. If this force sensor becomes responsive at this point, the hook was overtightened, preventing the beam from moving. Please contact Teacher Support for replacement hooks.
  4. If the force sensor is still unresponsive, it should be replaced. Contact Teacher Support to determine the warranty status.
