How to configure the accelerometer (P3-ROC)

Related Config File Sections:

THe P3-ROC includes an accelerometer which you can use with MPF to detect g-force changes (to use as a tilt) as well as 3-axis leveling (to use to determine whether the machine is level).

To use the accelerometer on the P3-ROC, add it to your machine-wide config file like this:

    number: 1

The name (which is "p3_roc_accelerometer" in the example above) doesn't really matter.

Other than that, use it like you would any accelerometer in MPF, by following the docs and guides in the Accelerometers section of the documentation.

What if it did not work?
