If i shake the sensor board, acceleration is produced in the corresponding axis. but if i tap on the board, to produce higher g values, say 200g - 400g, the acceleration spike is seen in all the 3 axis, not just axis which I had tapped.
The configuration seems to be correct and the behavior is normal. The tap is never be exactly along one axis so the sensor will move little bit in all directions.
Please provide your sensor configuration and a plot of X, Y, Z data during the tap.
