About the size of a bathroom scale, the Vernier Force Plate has been designed for much higher forces than the DFS-BTA Dual-Range Force Sensor. The Force Plate can measure the forces developed during stepping, jumping and other human-scale actions.

With the Force Plate your students can:
• Observe the change in normal force during an elevator ride
• Measure the impulse delivered by the floor during a jump
• Measure the reaction force as a student leans against a wall

Comes with two handles which are ideal for pushing experiments.
FP-HAN pairs of spare handles are available.

• Force range: –850 to +3500N or –200 to +850N, where positive value is a compression force
• Maximum non-damaging force: 4500N compression or 900N pull evenly distributed
• Typical Resolution: 1.2N or 0.3N
