Recommended for all grades. Interface and software sold separately.
The Vernier Rotary Motion Sensor is a bidirectional angle sensor designed to measure rotational or linear position, velocity and acceleration.
The Rotary Motion Sensor lets you monitor angular motion precisely and easily. It is direction sensitive. You can use it to collect angular displacement, angular velocity, and angular acceleration data. Typical experiments include measuring moments of inertia, torque, pendula, and Atwood’s machine experiments. Even though we call it a Rotary Motion Sensor, it can also be used to measure linear position to a fraction of a millimeter.
Resolution: 1° or 0.25°
Optical Encoder: Bidirectional, quadrature encoder, 360 cycle per revolution
Maximum Speed: 30 rev/s at 1° resolution 7.5 rev/s at 0.25° resolution
3-step Pulley: 10 mm, 29 mm and 48 mm groove diameter
The Rotary Motion Sensor will auto-ID with Logger Pro 3.6.1 or newer and LabQuest App 1.1 or newer. All other interface and software combinations require you to manually set up the sensor or load a Logger Pro experiment file.
