Analog Accelerometer V1.0

P/N: 276-2332

The VEX Accelerometer measures accelerations on three axis simultaneously. By measuring the acceleration of the robot, one can calculate the velocity of the robot, and more importantly the distance this robot has travelled. Accelerometers are also great for detecting collisions and determining if the robot is stopped or moving.

  • Three Axis Accelerometer.
  • Selectable sensitivity via jumper: ±2g and ±6g.
  • 0-5V analog output (one for each axis).
  • Uses the LIS344ALH chip.
  • LED indicates power and proper connection.
  • Mounts directly to VEX.
