NeuLog® Photo Gate Sensor

(in stock)


Smart, easy, and affordable digital data collection technology for now and the future

The next generation of scientific data collection sensors is now available--easier to use, more versatile, and with a lower cost than any other data collection system. For both beginners and advanced users, the NeuLog® data logger sensors offer a simple and flexible solution to collect and analyze the most complex data from your science laboratory experiments or field activities.

The most used physical science and physics sensor is now easier to use. Use the NeuLog® Photo Gate Sensor to study the speed of a rolling or rotating object, the swing of a pendulum, or freefall acceleration. The sensor has 4 modes of operation: acceleration with single photo gate; acceleration with 2 photo gates; velocity and momentum with 2 photo gates; and status graph. Operation, time, velocity, or acceleration can be measured with 1 or 2 photo gates and associated timing cards. The sensor can also show the status pictorially (digital 1 or 0) of the voltage output of the photo gate as timing cards pass through it. The modes of operation are selected by clicking on the relevant picture, and the measured values can be display digitally or graphically. The photo gate has a 7-cm gate width and includes an accessory rod.

Note: Requires connection hardware, which is sold separately. For hardwired setup, use the NeuLog® PC Starter Connection Bundle (item #369500) or NeuLog® USB Bridge Module (item #369733). For wireless setup, use the NeuLog® Wi-Fi™ Starter Connection Bundle (item #369510). For stand-alone setup, use the NeuLog® Graphic Display Bundle (item #369520).
