The accelerometer is an electromechanical device that will measure acceleration forces. These forces may be static, like the constant force of gravity pulling at your feet, or dynamic – caused by moving or vibrating the accelerometer.

The sensor can record Acceleration along a single axis i.e. X, Y or Z, Resultant force (sum of X + Y + Z), Vibration and Angle making this a very versatile sensor.

Acceleration is shown as multiples of g or as m/s2.

The low g 3-Axis Accelerometer measures forces in the range of ±10.0 g or ±100.0 ms-2.

Ideal for measuring small accelerations such as change of g investigations e.g. free fall, golf swings.

Empowering educators worldwide, from schools and libraries to renowned institutes.

The future of education is here, and it fits right in the palm of your hand. Give your students the gift of engaging, interactive, and collaborative learning experiences with our SmartSchool Systems Microscope solutions. 

There are 2 accelerometer sensors, one recording accelerations to a maximum of 10g and one recording accelerations to a maximum of 50g.

The lower range sensor can record in acceleration in one of 3 axis or the resultant force of the 3 axis. It will also measure vibration forces and angle.

The higher range sensor is restricted to 2 axis and resultant forces of both axis.

Both sensors will show the acceleration as multiples of g or as m/s2.
