Features and Benefits
If it moves, you can measure it!
Durable and Virtually Indestructible
The circuit board is encased in silicon epoxy. It's able to withstand shocks up to 10,000 g's, surviving classroom "accidents" if dropped or mishandled.
Direct Attachment, to object(s) in motion 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 measurement 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 Use
Set trial parameters.
9 Degrees of Freedom (9 DOF)
to Bring Labs to Life
Motion measurement in all three dimensions coupled with orientation using three different sensors -all in one package- data provides an accuracy that couldn't previously be captured in the classroom. Data is not limited to linear movement and rotation 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, automatically merge the video and data files into a single exported file. Students can watch a replay of their trial with their data overlaid on the video to see where real-life variations cause a change in data. SINC Technology allows 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.
