The 3-Axis Accelerometer has three separate internal accelerometers mounted orthogonally, allowing you to analyze separate components of complex accelerations.


The 3-Axis Accelerometer consists of three –5 to +5 g accelerometers mounted in one small block. Using the appropriate data collection hardware and software, you can graph any of these components, or calculate the magnitude of the net acceleration. The 3-Axis Accelerometer can be used for a wide variety of experiments and demonstrations, both inside the lab and outside.
