Accelerometer (Low g 3-axis)   Home / SmartQ Sensors  

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.

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.

Two Carts Colliding on dynamics system
Teaching applications:
  • Acceleration forces in Bungee jumps
  • Study of free fall
  • Opposing forces in collisions
  • Earthquake simulations
 

Kid Knex kx79580 organisms and life cycles
Extension and advanced ideas:
  • Measurement of angle vs. another process (e.g. angle of insolation vs. temperature)
  • Earthquake stability models
  • Damping of vibration
  • Centripetal force
  • Change of forces in a pendulum
  • Acceleration of a lift
  • Comes with mounting kit for the Data Harvest dynamics cart.
  • One axis can be measured at a time.
  • 19 measurement ranges available.
  • Resultant range is the square root of the sum of the component accelerations of X,Y,Z vectors.
  • For single axis measurements and vibration the fastest data collection is 20us (5Khz).
  • Resultant and inclinometer ranges the fastest data collection is 20ms (50Hz).
  • Sensor is a capacitive MEMs device
