Product Details

The Go Direct Motion Detector accurately tracks objects as close as 15 cm and as far away as 2.5 m. Built-in temperature compensation automatically adjusts for the difference in the speed of sound in cold and warm locations. Unique design protects the sensor from falling objects during simple harmonic motion or free fall experiments. The Go Direct Motion Detector can be used in a variety of experiments such as studying position, velocity, and acceleration of carts when mounted on a track, matching graphs created in Graphical Analysis 4 software, analyzing the effects of air resistance on falling coffee filters, and investigating simple harmonic motion by monitoring a mass on a spring.

Go Direct™ sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook, or computer using the free Graphical Analysis™ 4 app—no additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth, allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.

The Go Direct robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation. Monitor battery life directly from the free Graphical Analysis™ 4 app. Should the battery run low, simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting—no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.
