Dynamic System Encoder

This encoder helps students explore kinematics, dynamics, momentum, and energy.

  • Redesigned Carts Provide Added Durability, Versatility, and Instructional Value
  • Four Mass Trays
  • Super-Elastic Trigger Button for New Types of Collisions
  • Anti-Roll Peg
  • Top Tray for Easy Attachment of Sensors and Masses
  • Two Cart Colors (Teal and Grey)
With the Dynamics Cart and Track System with Motion Encoder, students can explore kinematics with the added benefit of easy and precise optical motion sensing. The Dynamics Cart and Track System with a Motion Encoder includes a Motion Encoder Receiver and a cart equipped with optical-motion encoding. The track also includes the Motion Encoder Strip. An optical sensor beneath the dynamics cart senses the passage of the cart over a marked strip on the track. The position information is sent as an encoded IR signal to a receiver at the track’s end. By avoiding the possibility of stray sound reflections, this optical-only system provides excellent, repeatable, and noise-resistant motion data.

Because the position information is relayed by a narrow IR beam, the addition of a second Motion Encoder Cart and Receiver allows students to record the positions of two carts simultaneously. Now collision experiments are easy to configure.

Ordering information: This kit includes a combination 1.2 m track/optics bench, motion-encoder cart with magnetic and hook-and-pile end caps, motion-encoder receiver, plunger cart with magnetic and hook-and-pile end caps, 4 hexagonal masses, mounting hardware for dual-range force sensor and accelerometers, adjustable end stop, 2 adjustable two-foot levelers, motion-detector bracket, motion-detector reflector flag, rod clamp, 2 photogate brackets, ultra pulley, and pulley bracket.
