The Wireless Force Platform builds on the success of our PASport Force Platform, offering users the same reliable performance with enhanced durability and a convenient, wireless connection.
The new design features a sturdy, glass-filled nylon platform and four supporting force beams that measure the forces acting normal to the platform’s surface. Along the bottom of the platform are four adjustable feet that make leveling quick and easy, while also ensuring stability between the force beams and the surface below. Students can measure the force applied to each beam independently or the overall resultant force acting on the surface of the platform (up to 5,200 N). With its new wireless design, the Wireless Force Platform is easier to use than ever, providing both special flexibility and custom sample rates for high speed sampling over Bluetooth Low Energy (up to 10 kHz).
The Wireless Force Platform can be used to measure the static weight of a structure or person, the dynamic vertical forces created when moving or jumping, or the forces associated with the impact of falling objects. Simply place the platform on a floor or tabletop to measure vertical force, or mount it to a wall to measure horizontal force.
Limited Warranty for Non-Education Use: When used exclusively for educational purposes, all PASCO Force Platforms (PS-3229, PS-3230, PS-2141, & PS-2142) fall under PASCO’s 5-Year Warranty. If used for athletic-related diagnostics and/or training (a non-educational application), all PASCO Force Platforms carry a limited warranty of 1 year from delivery date against defects in material and workmanship. See PASCO’s warranty page for more information.
