The DXL360S is a no-name dual axis inclinometer made in China. The USB port of the sensor can either be used to charge the internal Li-Ion battery or to attach an external interface module (RS-232 or IEEE 802.15.1) onto it. A similar sensor with lesser accuracy is available under the name DXL360. The case and/or colour may differ for revisions of the sensor.
Usage with OpenADMS
After the Bluetooth module is attached to the host, a serial-over-Bluetooth link will be created by Microsoft Windows. The virtual COM port can be used like a standard serial communications port. The OpenADMS serial port module has to operate in passive mode, than means, the sensor starts sending measured values right after a connection has been established. No requests have to be send by the host.
