Motion Detector

Motion Detector

Motion Detector

$89.00

The Motion Detector is used to measure position, velocity, and acceleration of moving objects.

ORDER CODE: MD-BTD Categories ,

The Motion Detector uses ultrasound to measure the position of carts, balls, people, and other objects.

  • Measure objects as close as 15 cm and as far away as 6 m.
  • Sensitivity switch reduces noise and produces higher quality data for studying dynamics carts on tracks.
  • Attaches easily to the Vernier Dynamics System.
  • Pivoting head allows for flexibility in the experiment setup.

You may also want to purchase the Motion Detector Clamp to attach the Motion Detector to a variety of objects such as table tops, ring stands, etc.

Specifications

  • Range: 0.15 to 6 m
  • Resolution: 1 mm
