9DoF Sensor Stick not working

Postby Pedro_Lopes » Wed Aug 02, 2017 8:23 am
Hello.

I bought a 9DoF Sensor Stick https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/sparkfun-9dof-sensor-stick but i can’t get it to work.

I have installed the Sparkfun library, have tried the example code provided by sparkfun, LSM9DS1_Basic_I2C , connected to a ESP8266 Thing Dev, but all i get is the output via Serial: “Failed to communicate with LSM9DS1.”

I have also tried a Arduino Micro, but with the same result.

On the ESP8266 Thing Dev i have made the following wiring:
ESP8266-------------LSM9DS1
GND--------------------GND
3.3V--------------------3.3V
2------------------------SDA
14----------------------SCL

On the Arduino Micro i have made the following wiring:
Arduino-------------LSM9DS1
GND--------------------GND
3.3V--------------------3.3V
2------------------------SDA
3------------------------SCL

I have not changed the jumpers on the LSM9DS1.

Am i doing something wrong?

Thank you for your help.

Your wiring sounds good, I double-checked the pinout for the Arduino Micro at least. It might be worth running the i2c scanner to see if the device shows up at all: https://playground.arduino.cc/Main/I2cScanner

Hello.

I2C scanner shows nothing found.


#4

Curious, how’s it wired up? Can you post a picture?


#5

Plase find in atachment a picture


#6

Please find atached a picture.

Hello.

Have you had a chance to view the wiring?

Best regards,

I need to know what to do. Should i return the sensor, so i can get a new
one?

Best regards,

Sorry for the delay, I was trying to get someone else to take a look since I’m all out of ideas. It might be best to return for a replacement.
