Triple Axis Accelerometer Breakout - MMA7361

2 items left

This is a breakout board for Freescale\'s MMA7361L three-axis analog MEMS accelerometer. The sensor requires a very low amount of power and has a g-select input which switches the accelerometer between ±1.5g and ±6g measurement ranges. Other features include a sleep mode, signal conditioning, a 1-pole low pass filter, temperature compensation, self test, and 0g-detect which detects linear freefall. Zero-g offset and sensitivity are factory set and require no external devices.

This breadboard friendly board breaks out every pin of the MMA7361L to a 9-pin, 0.1\" pitch header. The sensor works on power between 2.2 and 3.6VDC (3.3V optimal), and typically consumes just 400µA of current. All three axes have their own analog output.

Not sure which accelerometer is right for you? Our [Accelerometer and Gyro Buying Guide](https://www.sparkfun.com/pages/accel_gyro_guide) might help!

**Features:**

* Two selectable measuring ranges (±1.5g, ±6g)
