VERNIER DYNAMICS CART AND TRACK SYSTEM WITH MOTION ENCODER
The Dynamics Cart and Track System with Motion Encoder is a revolutionary way for physics students to study dynamics. The Motion Encoder adds an optical position sensing system to record cart motion and eliminates the need for a motion detector for cart-on-track activities.

Students can explore kinematics, dynamics, momentum and energy with the added benefit of easy and precise optical motion sensing. The Dynamics Cart and Track System with Motion Encoder uses the same high-quality carts and track of the Dynamics Cart and Track System but includes a Motion Encoder Receiver and a cart equipped with optical motion encoding. The track also includes the necessary 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 to study momentum and energy are very easy to configure.

If you have ever been frustrated by the need to tweak the alignment of a Motion Detector, you will be pleased by the data your students collect using the Motion Encoder.

Vernier have redesigned their carts to provide added durability, versatility and instructional value.
• Four mass trays make it easy to vary the total cart mass.
• Super-elastic trigger button allows for new types of collisions.
• An anti-roll peg ensures that the cart rolls on the track but not off the table.
• Top tray allows for easy attachment of sensors and masses.
• Two cart colours (teal and grey) make it easier to discuss collisions.

The Motion Encoder Transmitter requires two AAA batteries that are not included.

Requirements:
This system requires suitable software and an interface such as one of the Vernier LabQuest variations.
For comprehensive details of the possible sensor/interface/software combinations see the Compatibility Guide link below.

WARNING: The Motion Encoder Receiver is not compatible with the Texas Instruments TI-Nspire Lab Cradle. Connecting the Receiver to the Lab Cradle will render the Cradle inoperative, requiring repair by Texas Instruments.

Included:
• Combination 1.2m Track/Optics Bench
• Motion Encoder Cart with magnetic and velcro end caps
• Motion Encoder Receiver
• Plunger Cart with magnetic and velcro 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
• Pulley Bracket

Vernier DTS-EC-LONG substitutes a 2.2m track for the 1.2m track in the list above.
All other components of the two systems are the same.

Note: Long item freight applies.

      Vernier Dynamics Track System DTS Overview


      This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
      ACSPH066 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Collisions may be elastic and inelastic; kinetic energy is conserved in elastic collisions
      ACSPH065 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Energy is conserved in isolated systems and is transferred from one object to another when a force is applied over a distance; this causes work to be done and changes to kinetic and/or potential energy of objects
      ACSPH064 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Momentum is a property of moving objects; it is conserved in a closed system and may be transferred from one object to another when a force acts over a time interval
      ACSPH063 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Newton’s Three Laws of Motion describe the relationship between the force or forces acting on an object, modelled as a point mass, and the motion of the object due to the application of the force or forces
      ACSPH061 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Representations, including graphs and vectors, and/or equations of motion, can be used qualitatively and quantitatively to describe and predict linear motion
      ACSPH060 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Uniformly accelerated motion is described in terms of relationships between measurable scalar and vector quantities, including displacement, speed, velocity and acceleration
      ACSPH062 - Linear Motion and Waves - Linear motion and force - Vertical motion is analysed by assuming the acceleration due to gravity is constant near Earth’s surface
      ACSPH076 - Linear Motion and Waves - Waves - A wave model explains a wide range of light­related phenomena including reflection, refraction, total internal reflection, dispersion, diffraction and interference; a transverse wave model is required to explain polarisation
