inclinometers using basicX24

Started by naimead March 6, 2005

I am looking for a inclinometer so I can interface it to a basicX-24.
Has anyone used an inclinometer with a basicX before and if yes what
model?The only example i could find is the interface with the model
ADXL202EB(2 axis) accelerometer but i need to count angles in x-y-z
space.



> ... I need to count angles in x-y-z space...

I got two Kionix KXM52-L20s on eval boards six months ago but haven't
yet used them. I see that the analog product is now labelled KXM52-1050
and the digital SPI version of it is the KXP74-1010. Both are
three-axis accellerometers. The company was glad to sample the parts.

I'm only now approaching adding these accellerometers to a project, so
I'll have some feedback soon. Tom

JUST SO SOMEONE DOESN'T BUST A BLOOD VESSEL, I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO READ AND TYPE

TOM,

HOW ABOUT A LINK. I AM WORKING ON PREPLANNING A ROUGH ROBOT TRANSPORT BASE
THAT MAY BE USED OVER ROUGH GROUND. THIS UNIT MIGHT BE JUST THE THING TO
PREVENT A TILT OVER.

thanks,that's exactly what i want!Just a question:why you chose the
EVAL-1050 and not the demo board or the development board?won't it
be more difficult to connect it on a basicX?

I got what was available at the time. The development board is new
since the last time I visited them, I believe. Tom

Still using a KSR-33 at 110 baud? Tom

KSR33 perhaps? Clackety clackety clackety clack.



Tom,

I have communicated with kionix and they told me that their product
is not suitable for a very dynamic platform(e.g a platform that
moves in a speed>30km/h) because it updates its data really
slow.Have you got any experimental info on these or maybe a more
suitable inclinometer in mind?

No, I haven't had time to start to work with the Kionix modules yet.
Francisco, can you help? Tom
