Description: The ADXL335 is a small, thin, low power, complete 3-axis MEMS accelerometer with signal conditioned voltage outputs. The product measures acceleration with a minimum full-scale range of ±3 g. It can measure the static acceleration of gravity in tilt-sensing
applications, as well as dynamic acceleration resulting from motion, shock, or vibration.

The user selects the bandwidth of the accelerometer using the CX, CY, and CZ capacitors at the XOUT, YOUT, and ZOUT pins. Bandwidths can be selected to suit the application.

Breakout board listed below.

Features:

  • 1.8V- 3.6V single-supply operation
  • Integrated X, Y, and Z axis accelerometer on a single chip
  • X and Y axis has a 0.5Hz to 1600Hz bandwidth
  • Z axis has a 0.5Hz to 550Hz bandwidth
  • Hermetically sealed for temp and humidity resistance
  • 10,000 g shock tolerant
  • LFCSP_LQ Package

Dimensions: 4 x 4 x 1.45mm

Not quite

I tried getting data from ADXL335 via an XBee link, and directly on an Arduino. Both ways the range of values was uselessly small, and not what I expected from a motion detector (d2x/dt2). I did consult XBee data sheet, XBee guide, and multiple on-line examples of code for Arduino, XBee, and ADXL335. I humbly submit that I probably either had improper expectations, or just did not get how to engineer this thing correctly.


Good, relatively cheap accelerometer

Plenty of documentation and support for this product. I am very pleased to have purchased this item for my project.
