Custom Solutions

For some of our customers, our retail ultrasonic sensors have not fit the requirements of their particular application. As a result, we have designed and manufactured a number of custom solutions. Some of these sensor improvements and features have been incorporated directly into our standard products. For other users we have evaluated their specifications and charged a small NRE fee for their custom parts.

Contact MaxBotix Inc. with your application and its requirements and our engineers will work to arrive at a desirable solution.
