I will first say, excuse me if this is rather elementary but I am a software development by trade with no real exposure to the electrical sensor side. I am creating a project where I want to take the vibration reading of an object, say a bearing, and get the velocity of it, preferably in Inches/Second.
I have bought a vibration sensor here and it gives me a 0-180000 (not sure the upper bound but that is roughl number that I am seeing).
I am not sure if this sensor will provide me the data I need, and I am not sure if I will actually need an accelerometer or combination of sensors to get my project rolling.
Any advice for a newbie would be greatly appreciated.
