Grove - 6-Axis Accelerometer & Compass v2.0

Sold out
Code: C000135   /   Barcode: 101020081

The Grove –6-Axis Accelerometer & Compass V2.0 is a 3-axis accelerometer combined with a 3-axis magnetic sensor.



It is based on the sensor module LSM303D which has a selectable linear acceleration scale range of ±2 / ±4 / ±8 / ±16 g and a selectable magnetic field scale range of ±2 /±4 / ±8 / ±12 gauss. Booth these scales are what are referred to a “full” scale. The magnetic sensor and the accelerometer can be powered down separately to reduce power consumption. An Arduino-board gets the data via an I2C interface using modules custom library.
