# the tolerance of sh200q of StickC?

• I'm curious about the tolerance of the sh200q acceleration readings of StickC.
I put the StickC on the desk and make sure it will not be moved and be steady.
Then I tried the codes below but got the acceleration higher than "1g". Why is that?

``````>>> from hardware import sh200q
>>> import math
>>> imu = sh200q.Sh200q()
>>>
>>> for i in range(5):
...     print((imu.acceleration[0],imu.acceleration[1],imu.acceleration[2]))
...     wait(1)
...
...
...

(0.14, 0.055, 1.111)
(0.139, 0.058, 1.111)
(0.138, 0.055, 1.11)
(0.136, 0.06, 1.11)
>>> for i in range(5):
...     print(math.sqrt(imu.acceleration[0]**2+imu.acceleration[1]**2+imu.acceleration[2]**2))
...     wait(1)
...

I also tried with the configuration 16g range set. More or less the same.

``````>>> for i in range(5):
...     print((imu.acceleration[0],imu.acceleration[1],imu.acceleration[2]))
...     wait(1)

• acceleration z is 1g, is normal

• @heybin

but it is 11% more than 1g.
Is it normal? I suppose the tolerance is much lower than 10%.

• It need calibration, maybe... i will check it

• @heybin I also found "non zero" values for acceleration and gyro. Is there a special calibration method?
Thanks....
