This is a GY-50 L3G4200D 3-Axis Gyroscope Angular Velocity Module low-power three-axis angular rate digital gyroscope sensor. The L3G4200D has a full scale of ±250/±500/±2000 DPS and is capable of measuring rates with a user-selectable bandwidth. These work great in gaming and virtual reality input devices, GPS navigation systems and robotics.
The accelerometer sensors measure the acceleration by measuring the change in capacitance. Its structure has a mass attached to a spring that moves along one direction and has fixed outer plates. So, when acceleration is applied in any direction, the capacitance between the plates and the mass will change.
An accelerometer is a device that measures the vibration, or acceleration of motion of a structure. The force caused by vibration or a change in motion (acceleration) causes the mass to “squeeze” the piezoelectric material which produces an electrical charge that is proportional to the force exerted upon it.
The main difference between the two devices is simple: one can sense rotation, whereas the other cannot. … Using the key principles of angular momentum, the gyroscope helps indicate orientation. In comparison, the accelerometer measures linear acceleration based on vibration.
The 3-Axis Accelerometer consists of three –5 to +5 g accelerometers mounted in one small block. Using the appropriate data collection hardware and software, you can graph any of these components, or calculate the magnitude of the net acceleration.
1. There may be slight size deviations due to manual measurement, different measuring methods and tools.
2. The picture may not reflect the actual colour of the item because of different photographing light, angle and display monitor.
