Saelig has released an innovative USB-enabled JoyWarrior24F14 for use in USB-based acceleration sensing devices.
These JoyWarrior24F14 modules are highly economical and exhibit enhanced performance with an acceleration resolution having 125ìg sensitiveness. These devices work on a MEMS sensor and offers 14-bit resolution in various ranges in the order of ±1g, ±1.5g, ±2g, ±3g, ±4g, ±8g, or ±16g, providing 125 results in each second.
The USB interface permits its simplified usage with any computers. The JoyWarrior24F14 functions as a joystick and the data can be accessed easily using the API joystick of the operating system eliminating the need of any additional drivers. Thus this JoyWarrior24F14 can be used in various joystick applications.
The free software supplied with it supports Windows and MacOS X platforms and an alignment tool is available to configure the sensor parameters, with a calibration tool, tilt angle calibration, and an easy data recorder. The miniature 30 x 33 x 5mm size and a <5g low mass simplifies the incorporation of sensor in many cases. These units perform tilt, acceleration, and low frequency vibration detection apart from various manual input applications. An optional eight digital inputs are provided for buttons or logic signals.
The JoyWarrior24F14 modules are manufactured by Europe-based Code Mercenaries and encompass a quality sensor deployed in the Quake Catcher Network at the University of California. This project facilitates the computer users to take part in a seismic event measurement programme.
