Protected Use – UAV Applications

MaxBotix Inc., engineers have written a full evaluation that can be seen here that covers proper mounting of a sensor to avoid acoustic interference from the propellers, and corrections for electrical noise. Through this evaluation, we have identified the sensors with the best operation for for this application.

Test These First!

AN
PW
RS232

MB1240
The MB1240 is recommended for powerful UAVs. During UAV testing, our engineers have seen this sensor demonstrate the best performance. This sensor has great resistance to the acoustic and electric noise present on many UAV platforms.Each $39.95
More Info
I2C

MB1242
Uses the I2C communication protocol. Similar function to the MB1240.Each $39.95

Other Sensors to Try

AN
PW
RS232

MB1230
The MB1230 is great for UAVs that require slightly more sensitivity than the MB1240 offers.Each $39.95

I2C

MB1232
Uses the I2C communication protocol. Similar function to the MB1230.Each $39.95

AN
PW
RS232

MB1220
The MB1220 is a great balance between noise rejection and small target detection. This is a great starting point for UAV operators confident in their electrical engineering ability. A clean, stable power supply and proper ADC reference (or digital input) will be required. Users should test propellers and motors for acoustic noise at 40kHz. (Recommended SPL levels should not exceed 70db at 40kHz).Each $39.95
