Vernier's Wireless Dynamics Sensor System

Product Focus

LET IT RIDE: Physics students even use the
sensor on roller coasters to measure altitude,
forces, and acceleration.

THE WIRELESS DYNAMICS SENSOR SYSTEM by Vernier combines a three-axis accelerator, a force sensor, and an altimeter into one unit. It can stand alone as a data logger or communicate wirelessly with a computer via Bluetooth, eliminating error due to friction from wires and cables. The system includes a rechargeable battery, bumpers for collisions, mounting hardware for dynamics carts, and an instructional manual. On-boardmemory stores data after the unit is turned off. Price: $249.
