The sensor is used to measure electrically the amplitudes of various oscillators on the trainers TM 150 and TM 155. Because it does not require contact, it avoids the possibility of false readings. The induction-based displacement principle makes it possible to measure amplitude on practically any metal object. The sensor provides an analog position-proportional voltage value as the output signal. The required power is supplied by the sensor supply module TM 151.
TM 151 supplies up to 4 sensors and processes the sensor signals, i.e. to be shown on an oscilloscope.
Learning Objectives / Experiments
The sensor can be used with TM 150 or TM 155 for the following experiments - Pendulum experiments - Natural oscillation of a bar-type oscillator - Damped oscillation of a bar-type oscillator - Forced oscillation of a bar-type oscillator (damped and undamped
