This is the latest in a long, proven line of analog sensors - the holy grail of accelerometers. Board comes fully assembled and tested with external components installed.

The included 0. Not sure which accelerometer is right for you? Our Accelerometer and Gyro Buying Guide might help! To calibrate low-G accelerometers, just use Earth's gravity 1G for each axis while the accelerometer is at rest. Make sure that each axis is perpendicular to the flat surface that you are using to calibrate the sensor. This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple if any polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need. See all skill levels. If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it.

The programming skill is all about communication and code. Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code.

You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up.

You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics. Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements. We welcome your comments and suggestions below. However, if you are looking for solutions to technical questions please see our Technical Assistance page. What kinds of numbers should this thing be putting out? I'm getting stuff in the s.

I will note that I ran like 9v through it on accident. When use external reference connected to its VCC pin, I just get zeroes. But when I use internal reference I get numbers in the s that do indeed seem to change with my tilt. This is the same width as the Arduino Pro Mini. It would be really amazing if this board were designed so that the holes on one end lined up to A1,A2,A3,VCC,GND holes on one end, and the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th digital pin on the other end, so this could be used as a mini shield.

How do I hook up my wires to the accelerometer? Do I simply loop the copper wire through the holes and twist it back on itself to make the connection? Soldering wires or pins is best. The graphic on the board showing the orientation of the x,y,z axis is wrong. I didn't notice this at first but when the Y axis failed I noticed that the x axis didn't respond when I rotated the board around Y. A quick check of the ADXL data verified that it is the graphic on the board that is incorrect.

It should be rotated 90 degrees so that Y points in the direction X does now. In the wiring diagram, I noticed that the analog pins are wired directly to the board without a logic level converter for 3. I'll be using an Arduino Uno 5V , so I think the analog pins are expecting voltages between 0V and 5V values 0 to So does that mean, I need to calibrate the Uno's sketch to expect a max analog pin value of ? It would seem this would mean reduced granularity of signal.

Is that true? I know some logic level converter like BOB are only for use with digital pins, but I'm assuming one exists that supports analog signals. Any suggestions? The actual project I'm using P5 and it's working great. I'm running workshops in parallel and want to demo the chip in real-time but am currently out of time to build something from scratch.

I'm desperate for a simple processing or something else sketch that takes my x, y, z values being printed to the serial port from Arduino and visualizes them in some way. Can anyone point me to anything that won't need a lot of coding time and effort just now? I have a question regarding the provided eagle files. When I load the. Hi, how can I figure out to connect correctly this accelerometer from sparkfun with a Flora Atmega32u4? I am new to this kind of hobby but I am pretty sure there must be a way to put them together.

Guys im well new to this whole thing and been racking my brain the last few days how to make my accelorometer make my servo arm spin right degrees by snapping it forward a bit. Atm its so touch sensitive my servo is doing all kinds of stuff.

Any have any ideas? Any help would be great! Looping wires through the holes may work, but it would be difficult to keep the wires from touching each other.

To keep horisontal movement. But this video below can work! Thanks a LOT! I'm seeing inconsistent behavior on this model. The first unit I did shake fairly hard more than 3 g's? Has anyone else seen this behavior? The cheapest 5V - 3. They have a voltage drop of 1.

It may be noisier this way for all I know, but it definitely works. I recently bought this accelerometer but i found that the out put of it on every axis is only about 0. How accurate is this? I need to be able to measure a difference of 0. I know the rule is the lower the measurable g's the more accurate, but how much?

I'm going to use this application to place on the end of a gun for dry firing. Any thoughts? I'm looking for the smallest and lightest gyro and accelerometer digital output or analog ever in the market max.

I really need it for my MAV. Is there anybody here can recommend me any with this requirement? Please and thank you Slightly noobish question.

I'm interested in experimenting with different bandwidths on this chip, which the datasheet says can be selected by placing different capacitances between the x,y,z-outputs and ground. The breakout board comes with 0. If I wanted to lower the bandwidth, which requires increasing the capacitance, I could just put my own capacitors in parallel with the on-board ones, right? And if I want to increase the bandwidth lower capacitance , I could put my own capacitors in series with the on-board ones, right?

As I understand it, putting capacitors in series will change the overall working voltage of the circuit -- won't this complicate my interpretation of the accelerometer output?

Could I damage the chip? Right out of the package, I stupidly hooked this up to 5V for a minute or so. I switched back to 3. Did I kill it? I don't think that's correct. Move the decimal one place to the left and you should have the correct measurements.


How Accelerometer works? Interface ADXL335 with Arduino

The ADXL is a small, thin, low power, complete 3-axis accelerometer with signal conditioned voltage outputs. It can measure the static acceleration of gravity in tiltsensing applications, as well as dynamic acceleration resulting from motion, shock, or vibration. Bandwidths can be selected to suit the application, with a range of 0. At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase.


SparkFun Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout - ADXL335

Ever wondered how your smartphone knows up from down! They all got a tiny device called Accelerometer built into the circuitry which can sense when you tilt it from side to side. The brilliant scientist Isaac Newton in his second law of motion defined acceleration by relating it to mass and force. In other words, acceleration is the amount of force we need to move each unit of mass.
