Rate Gyro

Measure rate of rotation using this Analog Sensor.
SKU: 45-2004
$26.95

The Rate Gyro is used to measure the rate of rotation. When the Rate Gyro is completely still, the returned reading is 1.4V which produces a reading of ±2°/sec. With the sensor idle at 280, a Counter Clockwise (CCW) rotation will increase the value of the reading and then return to 280 once movement is stopped. A Clockwise (CW) rotation of the gyro will cause a decrease in the return value and return to 280 once the sensor is no longer moving. The readings are accurate to the degree.
