This outdoor sensor provides very short to long distance detection and ranging in a compact, robust PVC housing. The ultrasonic sensor meets the IP67 water intrusion standard and matches standard electrical Â¾-inch PVC pipe fittings. High output acoustic power combined with continuously variable gain, real-time background automatic calibration, real-time waveform signature analysis, and noise rejection algorithms results in virtually noise free distance readings. This holds true even in the presence of many of the various acoustic or electrical noise sources. The HRXL-MaxSonar-WR sensors are factory calibrated to match narrow sensor beam patterns and provide reliable long range detection zones.Features:Resolution of 1mm7.5Hz read rateInternal temperature compensation42kHz ultrasonic sensor measures distance to objectsRead from all 3 sensor outputs: Analog Voltage, Serial, Pulse WidthVirtually no sensor dead zone, objects closer than 30cm range as 30cmOperates from 2.7-5.5VLow 2.9mA average current requirementSmall, light weight moduleDesigned for easy integration into your project or productOperational temperature -40Â°C to +65Â°C (-40Â°F to +149Â°F)Realtime automatic calibration (voltage, humidity, and ambient noise)Firmware filtering for excellent noise tolerance and clutter rejectionWeather resistant (IP67), optional chemical resistant F-OptionMatches standard electrical Â¾-inch PVC pipe fittings for easy mounting (Â¾-inch National Pipe Thread Straight)Long narrow detection zoneRS232 Serial OutputDocuments:Datasheet (MB7360)Beam Width ExplanationMaxbotix FAQSensor Selection Guide Checkout Mikey Sklarâ€™s flame-based trampoline, the high-lighter, using the EZ1!Replaces:SEN-9009, SEN-09496
