The ADXL335 is a small, thin, low power, complete 3-axis accelerometer with signal conditioned voltage outputs. The product measures acceleration with a minimum full-scale range of ±3 g. The module was designed as a breakout board because ADXL335’s signal is analogue.
This is a very low cost break out module for the GY-61 ADXL335 3-axis Analogue Output Accelerometer. This module includes optional header pins and provides easy access to the X, Y and Z axis analogue outputs from the accelerometer. It is capable of sensing forces up to 3g on all axis. A 3.3V onboard regulator is also provided allowing the module to be powered from a 3.3 to 5V power supply source.
Package included: 1x GY-61 ADXL335 3-axis Analogue Output Accelerometer
The accelerometer sensors measure the acceleration by measuring the change in capacitance. Its structure has a mass attached to a spring that moves in 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.
