This is the latest in a long, proven line of analog sensors - the holy grail of accelerometers. The ADXL335 is a triple axis accelerometer with extremely low noise and power consumption - only 320uA! The sensor has a full sensing range of +/-3g.

There is no on-board regulation, provided power should be between 1.8 and 3.6VDC.

Dimensions: 0.7x0.7" 

Hooking it Up:

Here is the guide that illustrates how to connect an Arduino to the ADXL345 breakout board. The following is a table describing which pins on the Arduino should be connected to the pins on the accelerometer:

Arduino Pin ADXL345 Pin
0 Z
1 Y
2 X
3V3 VCC
Gnd

GND

 

 

Test Code:

//Analog read pins
const int xPin = 0;
const int yPin = 1;
const int zPin = 2;

//The minimum and maximum values that came from
//the accelerometer while standing still
//You very well may need to change these
int minVal =270;
int maxVal =440;

//to hold the caculated values
double x;
double y;
double z;

void setup(){
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop(){

  //read the analog values from the accelerometer
  int xRead = analogRead(xPin);
  int yRead = analogRead(yPin);
  int zRead = analogRead(zPin);

  //convert read values to degrees -90 to 90 - Needed for atan2
  int xAng = map(xRead, minVal, maxVal, -90, 90);
  int yAng = map(yRead, minVal, maxVal, -90, 90);
  int zAng = map(zRead, minVal, maxVal, -90, 90);

  //Caculate 360deg values like so: atan2(-yAng, -zAng)
  //atan2 outputs the value of -π to π (radians)
  //We are then converting the radians to degrees
  x = RAD_TO_DEG * (atan2(-yAng, -zAng) + PI);
  y = RAD_TO_DEG * (atan2(-xAng, -zAng) + PI);
  z = RAD_TO_DEG * (atan2(-yAng, -xAng) + PI);

  //Output the caculations
  Serial.print("x: ");
  Serial.print(x);
  Serial.print(" | y: ");
  Serial.print(y);
  Serial.print(" | z: ");
  Serial.println(z);

  delay(100);//just here to slow down the serial output - Easier to read

How long does it take to reach the USA, UK, Germany, Australia Canada and other EU countries?  

From China: If we ship from China, the delivery time can be from 7 working days to 15 working days. See the proof on the images below. US based orders are delivered more quickly than other countries.

Most of the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and Germany  based orders are delivered within 7 days. However, because of customs related processes, it can sometimes take up to 15 days.  Check out all the shipment proof images on this page. 

 

From Australia: If you have chosen standard post, you will receive your parcel in 3-5 days (in Australia) and 5-7 days (outside Australia)

If you have chosen economy post, you will receive your parcel in 3-5 days (in Australia) and 15-25 days (outside Australia)
