SKU: 000262 Category: Tags: , , , ,


The ADXL335 (also known as GY-61) is a small, low-power, 3-axis accelerometer module that can be used to measure acceleration in various electronic and DIY projects. It is based on the Analog Devices ADXL335 MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) accelerometer sensor. Here’s an overview of this module:

**Key Features and Information**:

1. **3-Axis Accelerometer**: The ADXL335 measures acceleration in three directions: X, Y, and Z. This makes it suitable for applications such as tilt-sensing, motion detection, and vibration monitoring.

2. **Analog Output**: The ADXL335 module provides analog output signals for each of the three axes. These analog voltages are proportional to the acceleration along those axes. You’ll need an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to convert these signals into digital data if required.

3. **Sensitivity**: The sensitivity of the ADXL335 module can be adjusted using external capacitors. It typically provides a sensitivity of around 330 mV/g (millivolts per gravity) in the default configuration.

4. **Operating Range**: The module is designed to operate over a specific range of acceleration, typically ±3g (g-forces) or ±3000 mg (milligravities). It can measure both positive and negative acceleration in these ranges.

5. **Low Power Consumption**: It’s a low-power device, which is beneficial for battery-powered applications.

6. **Compact Size**: The module is small and can be easily integrated into various electronic projects.

7. **Applications**: ADXL335 modules are commonly used in applications like motion detection, orientation sensing (tilt sensor), and robotics, among others. They can also be used in combination with microcontrollers like Arduino to build motion-controlled devices.

8. **Voltage Supply**: The module typically operates on a supply voltage between 1.8V and 3.6V.

It’s important to note that the ADXL335 module provides analog output, so if you plan to interface it with a digital microcontroller, you will need to use an ADC to convert the analog signals into digital values.

The specific pinout and electrical characteristics may vary depending on the manufacturer, so it’s a good practice to consult the datasheet or product documentation provided by the manufacturer to understand the pin functions and connection requirements for your specific module.
