Ultrasonic Sensors for OEMs, Engineers, Distributors & Educators

MaxBotix Inc., designs and manufactures ultrasonic sensors for a wide variety of applications and has been driving innovation in the ultrasonic sensor industry for the last 10 years. Our ultrasonic sensors are made in America and shipped worldwide from our 22,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Minnesota, USA.

Integrity & Excellence. Customer satisfaction is our first priority — including product selection, design, development, ordering, shipping, and technical support. Ordering is easy through our online store or customers can purchase from one of our many distributors worldwide. MaxBotix Inc., offers hundreds of easy-to-use ultrasonic distance sensors across 18 product lines. See our product catalog of Ultrasonic Sensors.

Application Specific. Different applications require different ultrasonic sensors. We design our processes to manufacture ultrasonic sensors by the thousands. It’s that simple. Engineers and OEMs value our factory calibrations because once a product is selected they can move forward with their large-scale deployment without manually configuring each individual sensor.
