FLORA Accelerometer/Compass Sensor - LSM303

$29.00 Inc. GST

Add motion and direction sensing to your wearable FLORA project with this high precision 3-axis Accelerometer+Compass sensor. Inside are two sensors, one is a classic 3-axis accelerometer, which can tell you which direction is down towards the Earth (by measuring gravity) or how fast the board is accelerating in 3D space. The other is a magnetometer that can sense where the strongest magnetic force is coming from, generally used to detect magnetic north. By combining this data you can then orient yourself.

Get started with the FLORA Accelerometer with our guide on the Adafruit Learning System! It uses the same Arduino library as our conventional form LSM303 breakout. The example and library code will work 'out of the box' with FLORA. Simply download our library and connect the 3V/SCL/SDA/GND pins, install the library properly and upload our test program to read out accelerometer and magnetic field data.

  • 0.55"/14mm diameter, 0.07"/1.8mm thick
  • This board/chip uses I2C 7-bit addresses 0x32 & 0x3C.
