ChilliTronix @ukscone Sorry, all they needed was the password the employers had or they just needed a pin?

ADX335 based Gy-61 3 axis accelerometer

The Gy-61 module contains a 3 axis accelerometer as well as a voltage regulator.

Below is an example sketch that turns this module into a spirit level, also using our 20X4 LCD module.

Modified 2014-08-09 by ChilliTronix Ltd to demonstrate the GY61 
accellerometer and 20 X 4 LCD


 
The circuit:
* LCD RS pin to digital pin 12
* LCD Enable pin to digital pin 11
* LCD D4 pin to digital pin 10
* LCD D5 pin to digital pin 9
* LCD D6 pin to digital pin 8
* LCD D7 pin to digital pin 7
* LCD R/W pin to ground
* 10K resistor:
* ends to +5V and ground
* wiper to LCD VO pin (pin 3)
LCD VDD to 5V
LCD VSS to GND
