Note: The 1044_1B uses a different chipset as the 1044_0B, so performance may vary slightly.
The PhidgetSpatial Precision 3/3/3 combines the functionality of a 3-axis compass, a 3-axis gyroscope, and a 3-axis accelerometer all in one convenient package. It has enhanced precision in the accelerometer when measuring less than ±2.5g, and enhanced gyroscope precision in the X and Y axes at speeds less than 100°/s. The transition from high precision to low precision mode and back is completely seamless and automatic.
If precision is not an important factor for your application, consider the 1042 - PhidgetSpatial 3/3/3 instead.
The 1044 could be used to:

* Clarification: This device has a high-precision, low-range chipset and a low-precision, high-range chipset for both the accelerometer and the gyroscope, and will automatically use the value from the precision chipset when the reading is within range. The precision gyroscope chipset only operates in the X and Y axes, so Z-axis measurements on the gyroscope will always use the less precise chipset. You may want to mount the 1044 in such a way that the gyroscope axes that are most important to your application fall on the X and Y planes.
