Force Sensor

Product Code: CI-6537


PASCO’s durable, reliable Force Sensor was designed specifically for the student physics lab. Wide-range, high-frequency response and a low noise transducer help generate excellent impulse graphs, smooth harmonic motion data and more. The sensor’s special strain gauge consistently generates the same output for the same force. Damping materials reduce vibrations caused by collisions without affecting results. Any dynamics cart accessories can be mounted on top of the Force Sensor.
