Connecting the Yaw Rate Gyroscope

Connect the Yaw Rate Gyro to an analog input on the VEX Microcontroller using a standard servo extension cable. The black (ground) wire goes adjacent to the 'B' silkscreened on the board. The center wire is for +5 volts. The white wire is signal. The mounting holes are electrically isolated from the circuit.

Technical Specifications

(1) Yaw Rate Gyroscope Sensor V1.0
Measures rotational rate in degrees per second (dps) and outputs a proportional analog value.

Compatible with all VEX Microcontrollers and 3-Wire Extension Cables
