Out with the old and in with the new! The old USB Accelerometer has been updated into the new X6-1 featuring user selectable sample rates up to 128 Hz. This simple device stores acceleration (movement) on the device for later viewing and analysis. Just plug it into any USB host to retrieve data. The USB-Accelerometer acts as a USB Mass storage device (like a USB memory stick). Data is stored as plain text Comma Separated Values (.csv), ready to be imported into any spreadsheet, word processor, or end user application.

This item is no longer available and will be replaced by the X6-1A device.

The X6-1A has the same capabilities as the X6-1 but with a few new features and for the same price of only $89.
