Waterproof 6-axis Acceleration and Angular Rate Sensor



JoyWarrior56FR1-WP is a cost efficient, waterproof six axis motion sensor with USB interface. It replaces the JoyWarrior24F14-WP and offers significantly improved performance. Three axes each of acceleration and angular rate are measured with 16 bit resolution. Measurement ranges from ±2 g to ±16 g and 125 dps to 2000 dps. Standard data rate is 833 measurements per second. A high speed mode generates 6,664 data sets per second. In standard mode the data is reported as joystick data. This eliminates the requirement of a special driver and allows to read the data with any program that can accept joystick data as input.

An extended temperature range of -10°C to 85°C and the water proof package opens many applications for the sensor. The sensor has two mounting holes and a strong internal magnet to make it simple to attach it to a surface. The mechanical dimensions and the center of the sensor are identical with JoyWarrior24F14-WP so it can directly replace the older sensor.

A configuration tool for setting the sensor parameters, a 3D tilt angle demo, and a data recorder are part of the software support. At a single unit price of Euro 69 (excl. VAT) JoyWarrior56FR1-WP allows the use in price sensitive applications.
