ADXL377 - High-G Triple-Axis Accelerometer (+-200g Analog Out)
Product Images and Video
Please note: The ADXL377 is "End of Life", we strongly recommend using the ADXL375 instead - the ADXL375 is also +-200g triple-axis, but is a digital accelerometer, with I2C and SPI interfaces instead of analog out. We have Arduino and Python libraries, and will work with just about any microcontroller!
Hey rocket man (burnin' out your fuse out there alone) ever wonder how fast you're rocketing? The ADXL377 +-200g 3-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
