This sensor can measure the mass to weight relationship and study how different pulley systems affect the effort needed to lift weights. It can also be used to measure push/pull forces and impacts. The force sensor is contained in a metal box. There is a hook at the bottom of the box that can be connected to various pulling loads. A simple bumper (for push/impact measurements) could be made and attached using a bolt which is placed through a length of plastic tubing. The sensor can be hung from a universal laboratory stand via a rod through the hole in its box. This sensor can be operated either facing upwards, downwards orat any intermediate (including horizontal) position.
NOTE: To be used in conjunction with a communication module. USB (code: 110806-4000), WiFi (code: 110806-0200), or RF (code: 110806-5000) communication modules available. Note that the WiFi and RF communication modules require a battery module for power.
