/* Memsic2125 Read the Memsic 2125 two-axis accelerometer. Converts the pulses output by the 2125 into milli-g's (1/1000 of earth's gravity) and prints them over the serial connection to the computer. The circuit: * X output of accelerometer to digital pin 2 * Y output of accelerometer to digital pin 3 * +V of accelerometer to +5V * GND of accelerometer to ground http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Memsic2125 created 6 Nov 2008 by David A. Mellis modified 30 Aug 2011 by Tom Igoe This example code is in the public domain. */ // these constants won't change: const int xPin = 2; // X output of the accelerometer const int yPin = 3; // Y output of the accelerometer void setup() { // initialize serial communications: Serial.begin(9600); // initialize the pins connected to the accelerometer // as inputs: pinMode(xPin, INPUT); pinMode(yPin, INPUT); } void loop() { // variables to read the pulse widths: int pulseX, pulseY; // variables to contain the resulting accelerations int accelerationX, accelerationY; // read pulse from x- and y-axes: pulseX = pulseIn(xPin,HIGH); pulseY = pulseIn(yPin,HIGH); // convert the pulse width into acceleration // accelerationX and accelerationY are in milli-g's: // earth's gravity is 1000 milli-g's, or 1g. accelerationX = ((pulseX / 10) - 500) * 8; accelerationY = ((pulseY / 10) - 500) * 8; // print the acceleration Serial.print(accelerationX); // print a tab character: Serial.print("\t"); Serial.print(accelerationY); Serial.println(); delay(100); }
