AM3X issues

Post by Jayex33 » Fri May 03, 2013 9:10 am

Hey, I just installed an AM3X accelerometer and followed the instructions on the freetronics website. The problem is, the value I am obtaining for my Z-value when the device is flat and not moving, is about 0.75g's instead of 1g as per http://www.freetronics.com/pages/am3x-q ... YN-vLWnoxO

How do I go about calibrating this value to be 1g, is there any issue with the calculations on the page that I may have to change?

I have just hooked up the AM3X and uploaded the sketch in the guide.
i am getting X =995, Y=996, and Z=980

they float a little but certainly not in the 500 range

any Ideas?
