This sensor can be used to study various kinds of motion. With five modes of operation, time, velocity or acceleration can be measured with one or two photo gates and associated timing cards, as well as showing pictorially the status (digital 1 or 0) of the voltage output of the photo gate as timing cards pass through it.


The modes of operation are selected by clicking on the relevant picture.


The measured values can be displayed digitally or graphically.


The sensor has five modes of operations:

1) Time and Velocity mode

2) Acceleration with single photo-gate
