Acceleration Sensors FAQ


How to mesure inclination with an accelerometer?

The acceleration sensor is sensitive to inclination, i.e. earth's gravitation (DC response) , and the inclinometer is sensitive to acceleration. When the accelerometer is used as an inclinometer, it measures the component of earth's gravitation in the measuring direction giving a sine function of the inclination angle as the output.
