Accelerometer Sensor Front View Data Harvest 3200 3201

Accelerometer (High g 2-axis)

An accelerometer is an electromechanical device that will measure acceleration forces. These forces may be static, like the constant force of gravity pulling at your feet, or dynamic - caused by moving or vibrating the accelerometer.

The Accelerometer Sensor is also able to detect the magnitude and direction of acceleration.

Cart Accessories Included

Supplied with all you need to attach the sensor to the Data Harvest Dynamics cart, making it ideal for measuring forces and collisions.

Forces in Collisions

Suitable for large accelerations such as collisions and impact investigations between 2 carts or different surfaces. The Accelerometer sensor can also record acceleration along a single axis to measure resultant force.


Our latest cross-platform software makes capturing your science experiments a breeze, designed for teachers and students alike, the new EasySense2 software brings class collaboration to life.

Did you know?

Accelerometers are common devices but are usually unseen and unnoticed.


A modern car’s airbag system uses acceleration sensors to determine the trigger point for release.

Portable Computers

Portable computing devices e.g. laptop computers use accelerometers to lock hard drives if the computer is dropped.

Mobile Devices

Mobile phones use an accelerometer to determine the orientation of the screen and to adjust the screen resolution and mode.


Gaming consoles e.g. the Nintendo Wii use accelerometers in the hand controllers.

Physics ready out of the box

The Accelerometer Sensor is pre-calibrated at manufacture making it ready to plug-in and start using with minimal setup time.

A few example experiments you can achieve by using the Accelerometer Sensor.


Acceleration of a Dynamics cart on a track
Impulse (force change in collisions)
Collisions between carts or a cart and a surface
Impact force on landing e.g. athlete landing on a crash mat after a jump
Forces when ball is kicked or thrown or struck with a racquet
Explanation of opposing forces e.g. resistive forces countering force of mass on a surface
