What is an accelerometer?
This product has been replaced by the DE-ACCM6G.

Product Description

The DE-ACCM5G is an off the shelf 2 axis 5g accelerometer solution with analog outputs. It features integrated op amp buffers for direct connection to a microcontroller's analog inputs, or for driving heavier loads.

To maximise usability, it is designed to fit in the DIP-14 form factor, making the DE-ACCM5G suitable for breadboarding, perfboarding, and insertion into standard chip sockets. To keep things as simple as possible, there are only 4 pins - two for power, and two for the X and Y analog outputs.

Additional circuitry ensures that the product won't be damaged by reversed power connections, or voltages above the recommended ratings.

Need more sensitivity? Try the 2g ACCM.
