Description: The SerAccel v5 Enclosed is a 3 axis accelerometer with a simple serial interface. The latest SerAccel development, version 5 has many new improvements including variable baud rate, a factory reset command, and a complete triple axis measurement system based on the newly released MMA7260Q sensor from Freescale.
Power is gained from any RS-232 port (including USB-to-RS-232 converters) so no external power supply is needed. The on-board PIC (16LF88) runs at 10MHz and outputs three different types of outputs including calculated, binary, and raw outputs. The SerAccel v5 has software configurable settings to select between 4 sensing ranges (+/- 1.5, 2, 4, and 6g), as well as a software selectable measurement frequency (0-590Hz).
The SerAccel outputs real-time accelerations from 9600 to 57600bps using visible ASCII characters. The SerAccel is compatible with any RS-232 port in conjunction with any terminal program (Hyperterminal, VB Programs, or anything else that can read the comm port).
Device comes fully assembled and tested.
