Accelerometer/Magnetometer Data Logger X8M-3mini

USB Accelerometer/Magnetomer X8M-3mini


The X8M-3mini is our smallest data logger - measuring only 2.0x1.0x0.5 inch and weighing only 0.6oz. The X8M-3mini records a constant stream of time stamped accelerometer and magnetometer data to flash memory. Acceleration is collected in X, Y, and Z axes and stored at a user selectable rate of up to 200Hz. The magnetometer data is recorded at sub-intervals to the accelerometer rate. The X8M-3mini mounts as a standard mass storage device, which facilitates easy access to the comma delimited text data files and user setup files. The small size and simple operation makes the X8M-3mini ideal for monitoring human and animal activity. Read more about our data logger product-line features.
