Vernier Motion Encoder Cart

Order code: DTS-CART-MEC
Purchase QTY: (Each)1+    
Scientrific's price  $415.00    
Note: Prices do NOT include GST or freight

The Vernier Motion Encoder Cart is a replacement part to be used with a DTS Vernier Dynamics Cart and Track System with Motion Encoder. The cart cannot be used on its own.

The cart must be used with the MEC-BTD Vernier Motion Encoder Receiver and the track must have the METS Vernier Motion Encoder Track Strip installed.

The Vernier Motion Encoder Cart is a ready-to-use unit with a fitted IR transmitter unit. The transmitter requires two AAA batteries that are NOT included.
Either NiMH rechargeable batteries or alkaline disposable batteries are suitable.

A top tray has inserts for attaching:
     DFS-BTA Vernier Dual-Range Force Sensor
     LGA-BTA Vernier Low-g Accelerometer
     WDSS Vernier Wireless Dynamics Sensor System.
Removable inserts allow rapid configuration of magnets or Velcro tabs for collision study.
Vernier carts are also compatible with other common carts and tracks.

This product replaces the discontinued CART-MEC Vernier Motion Encoder Cart.

      This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
      ACSSU229 - Physical Sciences - Forces and Motion - The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics
      ACSPH066 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Collisions may be elastic and inelastic; kinetic energy is conserved in elastic collisions
      ACSPH065 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Energy is conserved in isolated systems and is transferred from one object to another when a force is applied over a distance; this causes work to be done and changes to kinetic and/or potential energy of objects
      ACSPH064 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Momentum is a property of moving objects; it is conserved in a closed system and may be transferred from one object to another when a force acts over a time interval
      ACSPH063 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Newton’s Three Laws of Motion describe the relationship between the force or forces acting on an object, modelled as a point mass, and the motion of the object due to the application of the force or forces
      ACSPH076 - Linear Motion and Waves - Waves - A wave model explains a wide range of light­related phenomena including reflection, refraction, total internal reflection, dispersion, diffraction and interference; a transverse wave model is required to explain polarisation
      ACSPH099 - Gravity and electromagnetism - Gravity and motion - Projectile motion can be analysed quantitatively by treating the horizontal and vertical components of the motion independently
