NEW PRODUCT – ADXL377 – High-G Triple-Axis Accelerometer (+-200g Analog Out). Hey rocket man (burnin’ out your fuse out there alone) ever wonder how fast you’re rocketing? The ADXL377 +-200g triple-axis accelerometer may be able to tell the answer.
You read that right, this accelerometer can sense up to 200g’s of force. Incredible! Not surprisingly, we couldn’t say “no” to a breakout for this sensor.

The sensor is soldered onto a PCB with four mounting holes (in case you don’t remember, this is accelerating at up to 200g’s!) and a 3.3V regulator so you can use it with 5v logic such as an Arduino. We also add 0.01uF filter caps for 500Hz output bandwidth.

This breakout comes with 3 analog outputs for X, Y and Z axis measurements on a 0.75″x0.75″ breakout board. The analog outputs are ratiometric: that means that 0g measurement output is always at half of the 3.3V output (1.65V), -200g is at 0v and 200g is at 3.3V with full scaling in between.

Fully assembled and tested. Comes with 8 pin 0.1″ standard header in case you want to use it with a breadboard or protoboard. Four 2.5mm (0.1″) mounting holes for easy attachment.

The XYZ filter capacitors are 0.01uF for a 500 Hz bandwidth
