GY-85 IMU Board - no data from ADXL345 accel

  • DiegoHenrix Monday, January 6, 2014 8:01 AM Reply
    The ADXL345 ship on the GY-85 board do not response the Arduino UNO board that i used for testing. However the other chips (ITG3205 and HMC5883L) work normaly. All the data i get from ADXL345 are zeros while i get expected data from other ICs on the board. I cant get even the DEVICE_ID from the ADXL reading the 0x00 adress. I tryed many codes developed for Arduino to read these sensor but behavior is the same, zeros from ADXL. So, is it a faulty ADXL345 IC or am i doing something wrong?

    Some codes and conections that i used:

    It took some time to figure out because i was waitting for the Arduino to test the GY-85 board. If its a faulty part can i ask a replacement from DX even some days later?
