Vu+ Push Button Switches (pack of 2)

datalogging sensors


Data Harvest

Product Description


Supplied in a pack of two, these push button switches are designed to be used in timing experiments such as reaction times, counting and measuring speed.

Note: Vu+ data logger required.    


Digital Switches

The push buttons are digital switch-type sensors that have two states, ON and OFF, these are push-to-make switches fitted with a red LED to give a visual indication of the switch's state.



Practical Investigations 

Use the Vu+ Push Button Switches to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:

  • Reaction Time Game
  • Counting objects (traffic, people, animals, etc.)
  • Measure speed (cars, people, etc.)
  • Record the differences in time taken to walk, run or hop over the same distance.
  • Record the time taken by a vehicle to pass from one point to another
  • Introducing the idea of the computer acting as a stopwatch e.g. starting and stopping timing.
  • Introducing the fact that speed can be calculated directly if the distance between the start and finish line is used
