3 axis gyroscope that act as potentiometer


Replace any potentiometer with this motion control device in your project!

This 3 axis gyroscope is perfect for FPV head tracking, robotics, movement control and more… It allows you to track the movement of the head or arm and convert it in analog signals outputs, exactly like a potentiometer. Like other versions of the mhpro.net’s Gyroscopes, it can be configured as normal or reverse action mode. For Do It Yourself (DIY) home project lover who dreams of doing a movement tracking system himself. This system has been specially designed for DIY in electronics or robotics for all ages; people who want to explore electronics and want their own system, but are less comfortable with advanced programming of accelerometers. You can use one or more axes (X, Y, Z) independently. According to your needs.

The gyroscope outputs analog signals: 0 to input power voltage (5-12 volts) or 0 – 3.3 volts. Your choice. And independently for each axis. When turning on, the X and Y axis will output 2,5 volts (in case of 5 volts input) and will tend to 0 volt if you rotate the gyroscope one way (-90 degree) and tend to 5 volts the other way (90 degrees). The Z axis will do the same but with +- 180 degrees of rotation.

The project is live on www.kickstarter.com and has 57 days to go.
