Accelerometers - prewired

by kwilli_at_ua on Tue Aug 03, 2021 5:20 pm

I am looking for an analog-output accelerometer board that comes with pre-wired headers. I would like for my students to use their Arduinos and an analog accelerometer such as the ADXL335 to perform a basic vibration test. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

Thanks for the suggestion. I was just hoping that there would be a more direct path to getting the accels. For example, there is an outfit from China that advertises "welded" units on Amazon for about $8 and free shipping, but they have no reviews and the shipping window is a bit broad. I would take care of the soldering myself, but I have 70 students distributed across the country, so shipping the individual units out to them would be a challenge. I will keep swinging and try some different approaches.
