Vernier Wireless Dynamics Sensor SystemOrder code: WDSS
VERNIER WIRELESS DYNAMICS SENSOR SYSTEM
The Vernier Wireless Dynamics Sensor System combines a 3 axis accelerometer, force sensor and altimeter into one unit that communicates wirelessly with your computer via Bluetooth®. Also use it as a stand-alone data logger. It's more than just a wireless sensor; it's a complete data collection system completely free of friction due to cables. Use it to measure: pendulum forces; centripetal acceleration; acceleration on a swing; amusement park ride forces; altitude on rides etc or mount it on a dynamics / collision trolley for cable free recording. Comes complete with: rechargeable batteries and charger (or use standard AAA batteries if caught without charged batteries), bumpers for collisions, hooks for mounting either end of the unit in different positions, mounting hardware for dynamic carts and a manual.
The unit has a memory that retains up to 240,000 data points even after it has been turned off.
Maximum sampling rate: 1,000 samples / sec.
Force range: +/-50N
Resolution: 0.006 N (<10 N); 0.03 N (>10N)
Accelerometer (3 axis) range: +/-50m/s2 (+/-5 g)
Resolution: 0.04 m/s2
Altimeter change range: +/- 200m, resolution 1m
