    Can someone please suggest an accelerometer to be used with a Campbell Scientific CR3000 Data Acquisition system. It will be used to measure vehicle deceleration during braking events.

    Look up Parallex MX2125, think it goes by another name now. From fading memory, it has 100 Hz clock at 50 % duty, which varies with acceloration, also good for tilt.

    You might consider just using the accelerometer in the computer doing the acquisition. Every Macbook has a nice 3-axis accelerometer accessible via software.
