Plot data coming from ADXL345 Accelerometer


my setup would be like this. I have a cantilever beam and attached is the ADXL345 accelerometer. A load is applied at the free end of the beam. The vibration then will be measured by the accelerometer.
I want those data to be plotted.

I am planning to use either NI LabView or MatLab. Which would you recommend? or do you have any other application to recommend?

After plotting the data, there is still something I need to do. I need to get the frequency of the vibration. But getting the data plotted is the first thing I need to figure out. :slight_smile:

Thank you!

UPDATE: I am already using PLX-DAQ. However, I am having a problem with the time. It records the time in my computer clock.

Anyway, I am still configuring out how to plot using LabView.

If anyone here can help me is much appreciated. Thank you! :slight_smile:
