The 1042_0 PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3 combines the functionality of a 3-axis compass, a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis accelerometer all in one convenient package.

It is an inexpensive alternative to the 1044 - PhidgetSpatial Precision 3/3/3, and is ideal for applications where it's more important to know the general motion of an object rather than the precise amounts.


The 1042 could be used to:

  • Track whether an object is moving, and in which direction
  • Detect the presence of nearby movement or vibration
  • Track the orientation of a stationary object relative to the earth's gravitational pull and the direction relative to magnetic north

Product Features:

  • 3-Axis Compass, 3-Axis Gyroscope, 3-Axis Accelerometer
  • Inexpensive
  • Connects directly to a computer's USB Port


  • A 3018 - Mini-USB Cable 180cm
  • A Hardware mounting kit (4 nuts and bolts, 4 plastic spacers)
