Breakout board for the 3 axis ADXL335 from Analog Devices. This is the latest in a long, proven line of analog sensors - the holy grail of accelerometers. The ADXL335 is a triple axis MEMS accelerometer with extremely low noise and power consumption - only 320uA! The sensor has a full sensing range of +/-3g.
The SparkFun H3LIS331DL Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout is a low-power, high-g accelerometer with I2C and SPI interface options. Though not necessarily good at detecting minute changes, the H3LIS331DL is great for grueling conditions that normal accelerometers aren't suited for. With a shock survivability of 10000g and a handy sleep-to-wake function, the H3LIS331DL breakout makes the perfect board for shock and collision detection as well as impact recognition and logging.
The Spectacle Inertia Board makes it easy to sense motion or orientation with a Spectacle project. The Spectacle Inertia Board is designed to allow your Spectacle to detect whether it is moving or stationary, or whether it is under acceleration. At the heart of each Inertia Board is the trustworthy ADXL345 triple-axis MEMS accelerometer. The ADXL345 is a perfect fit for your Spectacle project when it comes to all things Inertia!
The LIS3DH Breakout is a smart, low-power, three-axis, capacitive micro-machined accelerometer with 12 bits of resolution that you can use to add translation detection to your project. It would be classified as a 3DoF, or 3 Degrees of Freedom. Inertial Measurement Units (or IMUs) can provide additional space location data, such as gyroscopic or magnetometric. The LIS3DH provided on this breakout operates under the same principles but gives a few analog inputs to play with, and it has some built-in movement detection abilities.
This breakout board makes it easy to use the tiny MMA8452Q accelerometer in your project. The MMA8452Q is a smart, low-power, three-axis, capacitive MEMS accelerometer with 12 bits of resolution. This accelerometer is packed with embedded functions with flexible user-programmable options, configurable to two interrupt pins. Embedded interrupt functions allow for overall power savings relieving the host processor from continuously polling data. Due to popular demand, this version of the SparkFun Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout includes pre-soldered male headers for better ease of use. With the headers already soldered on, you can jump right into using this little board without any assembly!
Need to put your finger on the pulse of the Earth? Did I just blow your mind? A geophone works by translating ground movement into voltage, which can easily be read by a microcontroller. The SM-24 geophone element is designed to offer the highest performance in seismic exploration based upon field-proven I/O Sensor technology. Low distortion, combined with excellent specifications, provide high-fidelity data. Basically, it's a super low frequency microphone for the ground.
The ADXL377 is a small, thin, low power, complete 3-axis accelerometer with signal conditioned analog voltage outputs that has a full-scale range of ±200g for measuring more extreme changes in motion, shock or vibration. This board has broken out all the pins you’ll need to get the necessary data from the accelerometers. The breakout is perfect for applications like concussion and head trauma detection or high force event detection.
