If the sensor is exposed to a knock/shock, the two output pins are short-circuited.

Pin assignment

Code example Arduino

Connection assignment Arduino

Arduino Sensor
Pin 10 Signal
5V +V
Mass GND
Arduino Sensor
Pin 13 LED+

This is an example program that makes an LED light up when a signal is detected on the sensor. For example, the modules KY-011, KY-016 or KY-029 can be used as LEDs.

int Led  =  13;// Declaration of the LED output spin
int Sensor  =  10;  // Declaration of sensor input spin
int  val ;  //  Temporary  Variable
void setup  ( )
  pinMode (Led, OUTPUT)   ;  // Initialization output spin
  pinMode (Sensor, INPUT)   ;  //  Initialization Sensorpin
void loop  ( )
  val  =  digitalRead (sensor)   ;  //  The current signal on the sensor is read
  if (val  = =  HIGH )  //  If a signal has been detected, the LED is switched on.
    digitalWrite (Led, LOW);
    digitalWrite (Led, HIGH);

Code example Raspberry Pi

Connection assignment Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi Sensor
GPIO 24 [Pin 18] Signal
3.3V [Pin 1 ] +V
Mass [ Pin 6 ] GND

This is a similar example program with the difference that here no LED is brought to light but something is output in the console when a signal is detected.

#  Required modules are imported and set up
import RPi. GPIO  as  GPIO
import time
GPIO.setmode (GPIO.BCM) 
# Here the input pin to which the sensor is connected is declared.  In addition, the PullUP resistor is activated at the input
print ("Sensor test [press CTRL+C to exit the test]")
#  This output function is executed when a signal is detected
def outputFunction(null) :
    print("Signal detected")
#  When a signal is detected (falling signal edge), the output function is triggered
GPIO.add_event_detect(GPIO_PIN, GPIO.FALLING, callback= outputFunction ,  bouncetime=100)  
# Main program loop
    while True:
        time.sleep (1) 
# Clean up after the program is finished
except KeyboardInterrupt:
    GPIO.cleanup ()

To start with the command:

sudo python3 KY031-RPi.py

Code example Micro:Bit

Pin assignment Micro : Bit:

Micro: Bit Sensor
Pin 1 Signal
3V +V
Mass GND

This is a MakeCode example for Micro: Bit which essentially does the same as the examples of the other two variants. However, this example is closer to the Raspberry Pi example than the Arduino example.
