Press Release Summary:
Calibrated at factory for cross-axis misalignment, sensitivity to positive and negative acceleration, and offset, 1049 - PhidgetSpatial 0/0/3 accelerometer employs precise voltage supply filtering to ensure low noise and correct sensor operation. Plug-and-play unit, offering data rate of 1-1,000 msec/sample, has XYZ axis noise level of 2,000 ÂµG standard deviation at 128 samples/sec. Other figures include 110 Hz acceleration bandwidth at 1 msec sample rate and 3660 Âµg acceleration resolution.
Original Press Release:
Phidgets Launches the 1049 - PhidgetSpatial 0/0/3 3-Axis, 5g Accelerometer and Reduces the Price of the 1059 - PhidgetAccelerometer 2-Axis from $95 to $60 CAD.
CALGARY, Alberta, - Phidgets Inc. released today the 1049 - PhidgetSpatial 0/0/3. The 1049 is the second product in the PhidgetSpatial family and it provides Accelerometer 3-Axis 5G functionality.
"The 1049 is the second product in our new family of PhidgetSpatial products. ", says Chester Fitchett, Phidgets CEO. " We also use very precise voltage supply filtering to guarantee low noise and correct sensor operation." added Chester.
The PhidgetSpatial family of product currently includes the:
1056 - PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3 : Compass 3-Axis, Gyroscope 3-Axis, Accelerometer 3-Axis 5G.
1049 - PhidgetSpatial 0/0/3 : Accelerometer 3-Axis 5G
Each accelerometer axis is calibrated at the factory for cross-axis mis-alignment, sensitivity to positive and negative acceleration, and offset.
"We will still be carrying our 1059 - PhidgetAccelerometer 2-Axis for users who only need 2-Axis data." Said Bernard Rousseau, director of marketing. "We have also reduced the price of the 1059 from $95 to $60 CAD.", added Rousseau.

"Unlike a lot of our competitor's products that require their users to write some firmware code in order to use their sensor, we are completely "Plug and Play" says Bernard Rousseau, Director of Marketing. "With Phidgets, you plug it in and start using it and when it comes to programming, the user, not us, decides which operating system and which computer language he wants to use", added Rousseau.
Users can program Phidgets using a simple yet powerful and well documented Application Programming Interfade (API) that is supported under Windows (2000, XP, Vista), Windows CE, Mac OS X, and Linux. Users can write programs in Visual Basic, VB.NET, C#, C/C++, Flash/Flex, Java, Labview, Matlab, ActionScript 3.0, and Cocoa.
Phidgets also provides programming examples for all its products to help programmers write their own programs. The API Libraries as well as the examples and the documentation are available at no charge on Phidgets.com.
