OUR PRODUCTS

 

We have designed the products 3D Accelerometer and 3D Gyroscope for users that want a quick and easy start in projects that need measurement of motion. Both of them measure in all three directions, continuously, and output their data through the USB connection.

 

Check the page How to Use for an introduction on how to integrate them into your project.

3D Gyroscope


Range: ± 2000 dps

Step size: 0.1 dps

Frequency: 200 Hz

Type: 3-axis MEMS gyroscope

Power consumption: < 0.1 W

Communication: USB Full-Speed

For Linux and Windows 10

Weight: 10 gram

USB VID/PID: 16d0:0de7

Unique Serial ID presented through USB interface


No extra drivers, plug and play


Our products are compatible with built-in drivers in Linux and Windows 10. They report sensor data according to the specifications for sensors in the HID protocol - we don't do any strange and inefficient workarounds with emulating keyboards, text terminals or other non-sensor devices.


They are a modern, quick and easy way of getting started with electro-mechanical sensors, without bothering with time-consuming wiring and soldering. Furthermore, there's an open-source library, libiio, which is compatible with sensors from us and other manufacturers that implement the HID sensor protocol.


Ideal for:

• Experiments

• Hobby projects

• Testing

• Education

• Prototyping

• IoT, Raspberry Pi, etc.

• Tablet application development


Application hints

 

Here are some hints and tips to help new users to get started.

Default placement

 

To use the default directions when connecting the sensor to a laptop, use a USB connector on the right side. You can also use an extension cable, and think of this example when trying to figure out the directions of your measurements.

 

X: Right

Y: Forward

Z: Up

 

For the gyroscope, positive rotation is counter-clockwise as viewed along the direction of any of the vectors.

 

For the accelerometer, please note that there is an acceleration of -1 g in the Z direction due to the gravitational pull of the Earth. This is commonly used to measure inclination.

Sample applications

 

Please check our page How to Use for more detailed usage notes.

 

Some open-source scripts for supporting new users (Linux only) can be found on our Github page.

 

Windows 10 developers are recommended to read Microsoft's online documentation about sensors, and get started with the example code that they provide.
