Replaced by the 1043 - PhidgetSpatial 0/0/3 High Resolution.
The 1049 - PhidgetSpatial 0/0/3 measures static and dynamic acceleration in 3 axes, up to 5g, and provides a high sampling speed of up to 1000 samples per second.
Each accelerometer axis is calibrated at the factory for cross-axis misalignment, sensitivity to positive and negative acceleration, and offset.
The 1049 can be used to:
|Acceleration Measurement Resolution||3.7 mg|
|Acceleration Bandwidth||110 Hz|
|Acceleration Measurement Max||± 5 g|
|Axis 0 Noise Level (X-Axis)||2 mg|
|Axis 1 Noise Level (Y-Axis)||2 mg|
|Axis 2 Noise Level (Z-Axis)||2 mg|
|API Object Name||Accelerometer|
|Sampling Speed Min||1 s/sample|
|Sampling Speed Max||1 ms/sample|
|Sampling Speed Min (Webservice)||1 s/sample|
|Sampling Speed Max (Webservice)||16 ms/sample|
|USB Voltage Min||4.4 V DC|
|USB Voltage Max||5.3 V DC|
|Current Consumption Max||22 mA|
|USB Speed||Full Speed|
|Operating Temperature Min||0 °C|
|Operating Temperature Max||70 °C|
If you need an accelerometer with higher resolution and lower noise have a look at:
The 1056 PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3 provides 16 times better resolution on the acceleration data, but is limited to 250 samples per second.
You can protect your board by purchasing the 3811 - Acrylic Enclosure for the 1049.

Welcome to the 1049 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:
Next, you will need to connect the pieces:
Now that you have everything together, let's start using the 1049!
In order to demonstrate the functionality of the 1049, the Phidget Control Panel running on a Windows machine will be used.
The Phidget Control Panel is available for use on both macOS and Windows machines. If you would like to follow along, first take a look at the getting started guide for your operating system:
Linux users can follow the getting started with Linux guide and continue reading here for more information about the 1049.
After plugging the 1049 into your computer and opening the Phidget Control Panel, you will see something like this:
The Phidget Control Panel will list all connected Phidgets and associated objects, as well as the following information:
The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.
Double-click on the Accelerometer object, labelled PhidgetSpatial 0/0/3, in order to run the example:
General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:
