Hello, I'm new here. I have a degree in Mechanical engineering and in Civil engineering. I currently work with CNC machines. Electrical work is not my strong suit. I'm working on a project where i need a trigger set off on my laptop every time a machine stops moving for testing purposes. I was thinking of using a accelerometer. My requirements are:
-small in size
-be able to see movement of atleast 1 mm
Currently Im using a wireless mouse to trigger it by hand everytime i see the machine stop. The machine moves in the linear x,y, and z direction. I was thinking of already taking a mouse a part and connecting the accelerometer to the mouse button and have it trigger everytime it stops.
Any help would be greatful.
