The Y3DMK002 Yocto 3D-V2 is a Swiss-made USB 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. If you need to detect an orientation, a movement or a magnetic field, the Yocto 3D-V2 is what you need. This USB device provides a 3D accelerometer, a 3D magnetometer, a 3D gyroscope to measure angular velocity, a 2D inclinometer (tilt sensor), a tilt compensated compass and an inertial estimation of the orientation based on the 3D gyroscope.
All maths required to use this kind of sensors are handled directly by the device. You can mount it in any position, as the reference frame can be configured and taken into account internally by the Yocto 3D-V2. The device automatically computes tilt angles and the estimated device attitude (using a quaternion, with an optional conversion to Tait-Bryan angles in the API). No additional computation is required in the application to determine the device orientation.
You can move away the sensor part as required, in particular if you want to avoid electromagnetic interferences from other devices.
Caution: if you intend to use the compass function, you should not use the classical Yoctopuce enclosures, as they include steel screws and magnets. Instead, use the YoctoBox-3D-Black/Transp enclosures, whose screws and bolts are in aluminium and brass, and which do no include magnets.
Contrarily to the Yocto 3D, this new version can perform auto-calibration to compensate for hard-iron interferences caused by nearby sources of magnetic fields that move along with the sensor.
To Pokemon GO users: Yoctopuce products work only with applications specifically designed to use them. On a Android phone, the Yocto 3D-V2 will not appear as a generic embedded gyroscope. If your android phone doesn’t feature any embedded gyroscope, the Yocto 3D-V2 can’t help you play with Pokemon GO.
This device can be connected directly to an Ethernet network using a YoctoHub Ethernet, to a WiFi network using a YoctoHub Wireless-g, it can even be connected to a GSM network thanks to the YoctoHub GSM.
