Infrared photo gate for triggering the 3B NETlog™ unit (U11300) or a digital counter (U8533341). For time measurements in experiments on free fall, motion on a track or pendulum oscillations and for counting pulses. It can be operated in internal mode using the built-in infra-red light source or in external mode with the aid of a laser pointer, which needs to be obtained separately. It then acts as a wide-range light barrier, allowing it to be used at sporting events, for example. The gate includes an operational indicator light, stand rod with screw thread, M6 bolt for attachment to a roller track (U35001) and connector lead with 8 pin miniDIN plugs.
Barrier spacing: 82 mm
Rise time: 60 ns
Spatial resolution: < 1 mm
Time resolution: 0.1 ms
In case you want to connect the Photogate with the VinciLab or WiLab, a suitable connector cable (1021688) needs to be ordered separately. Please see tab Recommended Products.
