Smart Pulley

Measure the velocity and acceleration of moving objects,
learn Newton’s laws of dynamics, or Newton’s second law with
this Smart Pulley.

Covered topics:


  • Range: 0 to 99 m/s
  • Accuracy: 0.05 m/s
  • Resolution (12-bit): 0.024 m/s
  • Max. Sampling Rate: 100 m/s
  • Timing Interval: < 5 μs
  • Parallax Error: For an object passing within 1 cm of the detector, with a velocity less than 10 m/s, the difference between the true and effective length is less than 1 mm.
  • Infrared Source: Peak at 800 nm
  • Data Logger Input Type: Digital
