Accelerometer (Low g 3-axis)

Order No. 3200

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.
