What is the highest rate of rotation for the Rotary Motion Sensor (standard and Go Direct)?

There are two resolutions for our Rotary Motion Sensors. Low resolution and High resolution which leads to 4 times as many pulses for a given rotation. The max rotational speed is higher with the low resolution setting.

For Vernier-manufactured models (2008 and newer, order code RMV-BTD and order code GDX-RMS):
-Max angular speed with Low resolution setting: 30 revolutions/s
-Max angular speed with High resolution setting: 7.5 revolutions/s
