Product description: 6-axis motion sensor - accelerometer and gyroscope - DFRobot SEN0386
Powerful 6-axis sensor combining accelerometer and gyroscope. Allows you to determine the position of an object in space, measure the acceleration and angular velocity. The measuring range for acceleration is ± 2 / 4 / 8 / 16 g, and for angular velocity: ± 250 / 500 / 1000 / 2000 °/s. Utilizes advanced digital filtering technology that contributes to the effective elimination of noise and increases the accuracy of the results, statistically to 0.05 degrees. Powered by a voltage range from 3.3 V to 5 V. It is compatible with popular Arduino microcontroller and derived boards.
Pins description and connection diagram
Sensor is equipped with a connector, which with use of included cable allows to connect it to microcontroller module. No additional soldering is required.
