Digital Force Sensor
The Force Sensor measures push and pull in the range -20 to 20N.
Three attachments, a hook, a platform and a ball end, make the sensor extremely versatile.
Masses can be suspended from springs to investigate conversion from kinetic to potential energy and simple harmonic motion.
The sensor can be used to investigate moments and forces in a simple structure as it supports a moving mass.
Pushing and pulling forces can be logged to investigate friction and energy.
The sensor’s robust strain gauge has a degree of overload protection.
