Acceleration Sensor


This 3-axis acceleration sensor has two acceleration ranges plus an altimeter and a 3-axis gyroscope. An additional channel measures the angle of the sensor’s long axis.

  • Measure helmet impacts in concussion-related investigations.
  • Slip it into your pocket and pirouette or ride a half-pipe.
  • Mount this accelerometer on your bicycle or affix it to your lab cart without any dragging cables.

Rechargeable Battery—Ready When You Are

The robust rechargeable battery offers long battery life and provides always-ready operation when using the sensor wirelessly. Monitor battery life directly from our free Graphical Analysis 4 app or LabQuest 2 App. Should the battery run low, simply connect the sensor to the charging cable and keep on collecting—no interruptions or inconvenience to you or your students.

Wired or Wireless—The Flexibility to Choose

Our Go Direct sensors connect directly to your mobile device, Chromebook, or computer using our free Graphical Analysis 4 app—no additional equipment or software purchases are necessary. Go Direct sensors can be used wired via USB or wirelessly via Bluetooth® wireless technology, allowing you to choose the solution best for your classroom or laboratory.
