Accelerometer (Low g 3-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.

Vibrations and Angles

The Low g accelerometer measures small accelerations such as change of g investigations e.g. free fall and golf swings. It has 19 ranges available and can record along a single axis i.e. X, Y or Z, Resultant force, Vibration and Angle (inclinometer) making it a very versatile sensor.


Our latest cross-platform software makes capturing your science experiments a breeze, designed for teacher's and students alike, the new EasySense2 software bring 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 forces in bungee jumps
Study of free fall
Opposing forces in collisions
Earthquake simulations e.g. test how long your model of a tower stays upright
Explanation of opposing forces e.g. resistive forces countering force of mass on a surface
Measurement of angle vs. another process (e.g. angle of insolation vs. temperature)
Damping of vibration
Centripetal force
Change of forces in a pendulum
Acceleration of a lift
Changes in acceleration while putting with a golf club
Tilt of an object
