Description: This is the latest wireless accelerometer from SparkFun. The WiTilt v3 incorporates many new features including LiPo battery, built-in charger, enclosure, single axis gyroscope and many more! This new version now uses the MMA7361 accelerometer
We've combined the triple axis accelerometer sensor from Freescale MMA7361 with the Bluetooth module from Roving Networks. What do you get? The new, WiTilt v3 complete wireless Accelerometer Measurement System. All measurements are transmitted via a wireless Class 1 Bluetooth® link that is extremely easy to use with a range of 100m (330ft) line-of-sight and 30m (100ft) in doors.
Output in ASCII/Binary/HEX at 57600bps. Bluetooth® connection can be reconfigured for slower communication rates. Individual measurement channels can be turned on or off. The unit can be setup to report only when a minimum value is broken (threshold). WiTilt v3 has a built in battery and roughly 12 hours of run time on a full charge.
You will want to remember to order the extra connector, and wall adapter to charge your battery. These units have a charger built in, so all you need is Wall Adapter Power Supply - 5VDC 1A, and a Barrel Jack to 2-pin JST adapter.

Note: The datasheet for this product cites the accelerometer IC that was used in the previous version of the board. The board now runs the MMA7361, as per the product description, and the current firmware supports the new IC. There should be, however, no changes to the functionality of the WiTilt from the previous version.
