The Vernier Wireless Dynamics Sensor System (WDSS) combines a 3-axis accelerometer, an altimeter and a force sensor into one unit that communicates wirelessly with your computer or LabQuest 2 using Bluetooth® wireless technology.
Use the WDSS with your Bluetooth-enabled computer and Logger Pro software or with your LabQuest 2, to collect data free of friction due to cables. Internal data storage capacity allows you to use it as a stand-alone data logger, making it great for roller coaster physics. In addition, you can use the WDSS to do traditional experiments that you do with conventional accelerometers and force sensors.
The unit has a memory that retains up to 240,000 data points even after it has been turned off.

Using Multiple WDSS:
The WDSS can be used alone, with one or more additional WDSS units or with other Vernier interfaces. The WDSS does not require an interface unless the experiment requires the use of other sensors that are not included in the unit itself.
Some common combinations are:
• Two WDSS units connected by Bluetooth to a single computer for Newton’s Third Law experiments.
• A WDSS used with a Vernier interface, Motion Detector and a Dual-Range Force Sensor for impulse-momentum experiments.
• A WDSS with a Vernier interface and a Dual-Range Force Sensor for Newton’s Third Law experiments.
• A WDSS, a Go!Motion and a Vernier Dynamics System create an elegant impulse-momentum experiment setup.

    Vernier WDSS Vernier Wireless Dynamics Sensor System

    This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
    ACSSU190 - Physical Sciences - Energy Conservation - Energy conservation in a system can be explained by describing energy transfers and transformations
    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
