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.

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.

Low g Accelerometer

  • Comes with mounting kit for the Data Harvest dynamics cart.
