I am trying to make sense of the results I had with the ADXL362. The accelerometer is built on a platform that we can access via Bluetooth. I can send commands from a phone to read X, Y, Z registers, respectively at the address 0x08, 0x09 and 0x0A.
I did orientation testing based on the datasheet on page 42. The test cases are listed on the picture with the orientation (little dot).
I am reading the 8-bit value for each axis, the values below are in decimal. The measurement range is +-2g, sensitivity: 1mg/LSB, scale factor 1000 LSB/g
Case 1: X: 63 - Y: 249 - Z: 7
Case 2: X: 249 - Y: 64 - Z: 16
Case 3: X:179 - Y: 246 - Z: 14
Case 4: X:255 - Y: 180 - Z: 11
Case 5: X:249 - Y: 246 - Z: 198
Case 6: X:248 - Y: 249 - Z: 77
I am trying to make sense of the data read above and would like to map the result to the data on the picture below. Here are couple of questions:
1) If the 0G is the mid-range @127 (decimal), I can understand 63 (-1g), I am not able to make a sense of Y and Z value, could you help me?
2) Do I need to subtract the reference (127) from the result? to find the number of g?
Help would be very welcome.
