Features and Benefits
Durable and Virtually Indestructible
The circuit board is encased in hardened epoxy. It's able to withstand shocks up to 10,000 g's, surviving classroom "accidents" if dropped or mishandled.
Flexible Attachment, the Possibilities are Nearly Limitless
The module can directly attach to nearly any surface, including existing lab equiptment, to capture data for whatever is in motion, so there's no reliance on line-of-sight readings. The module's motion detection equipment is self-contained, so it's not tethered to a computer. This freedom gives you nearly limitless potential so that… if you moves, you can measure it!
Easy to Set-Up
Set trial parameters.
9 Degrees of Freedom (9 DOF)
to Bring Labs to Life
Motion measurement in all three dimensions coupled with orientation data provides an accuracy that couldn't previously be captured in the classroom. Data is not limited to direction and orientation though; the magnetometer provides an alternative method for measuring and analyzing motion through magnetic field strength.
Data is collected during the entire trial, not just "snapshots" of data. Sample rates of nearly 1000 samples per second provide a clearer picture of what is happening during the trial. With the continuous stream of data and flexibility of mounting configurations, the EduForce module allows students to capture motion data like never before.
SINC™ Technology for More "Real-World" Understanding
SINC Technology allows students to record trials with any video recording device, including smartphones; and through the BioForce Analytics Dashboard, merge the video and data files into a single exported file. Students can watch a replay of their trial with corresponding data to see where real-life variations cause a change in data. SINC Technology also allows the students a path to critical thinking, by allowing them to see the trial run against their data they can analyze their methodology and correct errors in conducting the trial.
Taking Your Labs to the Next Level
Goal: Determine the relationship between acceleration and position for an object in simple harmonic motion.
Materials: EduForce Module, pendulum
How much energy can you generate while pumping on a swing? How do you get the greatest bat speed? How will you get your students to get the swing of Physics?
Goal: Observe the Law of Conservation of Momentum.
