Product Description

The XL‑MaxSonar‑EZ0 offers the widest and most sensitive beam pattern of any indoor sensor we currently offer. This makes the XL-MaxSonar-EZ0 an excellent choice wherever wide beam detection, reliable people detection, or reliable small obstacle detection are required.

The sensor is small in size, yet the high output acoustic power combined with continuously variable gain, real-time background automatic calibration, real-time waveform signature analysis, and real-time noise rejection algorithms results in virtually noise free distance readings for most users. This holds true even in the presence of many of the various acoustic or electrical noise sources. The XL‑MaxSonar‑EZ sensor line is factory calibrated to match the sensor beam patterns and provides a long range detection zone.

The MB1260 is an extra-long range version of this sensor.

Types of Material When designing an application that places an ultrasonic sensor in a visible location, users may wish to conceal the sensor for aesthetic purposes. Additionally, users may desire to hide the sensor to discourage individuals from tampering with the sensor. This article covers several methods that you may use to conceal a sensor.

Low versus High Resolution targets When it comes down to it, you purchase a rangefinder for the range readings. The success of an application may hinge upon knowing the exact location of a target. However, a sensor may report one meter even if the target is not exactly one meter away from the sensor. Sensor specifications, such as resolution, precision, and accuracy, help us understand what wiggle room and error will be present in a reading. Click here for full article.

Acoustic Types All targets reflect sound to a varying degree. Ultrasonic sensors use the speed of sound to calculate distance based on the time it takes for an echo to return from a target. More simply put, our sensors detect distance much like a bat or dolphin does. Click here for full article.
