In addition to the standard XL-MaxSonar-WR, MaxBotix Inc. has developed the F-Option for additional protection necessary in a few hazardous chemical environments. Extremely corrosive gases or liquids can degrade or compromise the operation of the sensing unit. As a result, we offer a more chemically inert seal which allows our sensors to operate in all but the harshest of chemical environments. In addition to the chemical resistance the sensor has improved performance in wet or dust environments.
The MB7950 Mounting Hardware is selected for use with our outdoor ultrasonic sensors. The MB7950 Mounting Hardware works with our LV‑MaxSonar‑WR, XL‑MaxSonar‑WR, and XL‑MaxSonar‑WRC products.
The MaxSonar Connection Wire is used to reduce interference caused by electrical noise on the lines. This cable is a great solution to use when running the sensors at a long distance or in an area with a lot of EMI and electrical noise. MaxBotix Inc., has successfully tested our sensors at a distance of 1,000 ft.
The power supply filter is recommended for environments with unclean power or electrical noise. Electrical noise may cause unstable range readings on MaxSonar products. The power supply filter helps clean unstable or dirty power supplies that may cause a MaxSonar sensor to have unstable range reports.
The MB7974 is designed to improve the HRXL-MaxSonar-WRS and SCXL‑MaxSonar-WRS performance in snow depth measurement applications. This horn can also increase the range that people are detected with select sensors.
The HR‑MaxTemp temperature sensor is used with the HRLV‑MaxSonar‑EZ series of sensors for automatic temperature compensation. When connected to the HRLV‑MaxSonar‑EZ all outputs are automatically adjusted to compensate for the speed of sound change over temperature.
The exposed materials of a properly mounted XL‑MaxSonar‑WR, I2CXL‑MaxSonar‑WR, or HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR sensor with the F-Option added are: Aluminum (oxidized surface), PVC, & Flourosilicone (with an additional back up FEP Teflon® seal).
The Shielded Cable Attach Option provided by MaxBotix Inc., creates a completely IP67 rated MaxSonar-WR sensor for simple integration of our sensors. The Shielded Cable Attach Option includes 3ft (90cm) of the MaxSonar MB7954 Shielded Cable with a sensor cap to fully protect the pin-out of the MaxSonar sensor. To add an additional length of wire to your shielded cable attach option (3ft included), please order the MB7984 desired length. The length will be divided equally among the total number of shielded cable attach options ordered. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to change the lengths attached to each sensor.

For some of our customers our standard products have not fit the requirements of their particular application. As a result, we have designed and manufactured a number of custom solutions. Some of the product 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.
