News and Announcements
MB8450 sensors can be used to enhance the customer experience, such as giving an automated greeting shortly after their arrival, or by automatically notifying staff and triggering a sales order.
We continue giving thanks to Jesus for all He has done for MaxBotix Inc., our employees, our customers, and our suppliers.
The 4-20HR-MaxSonar-WR sensors provide range information from 50cm to 500 cm and have a 1.6mm resolution, an operational temperature range from -40˚C to +65˚C (-40˚F to +149˚F), real-time automatic calibration, a 200,000+ Hours MTBF, an operational voltage range from 12V to 32V and a low 20-40mA average current requirement. The sensors function well with multiple sensors in the same location and they are RoHS and CE Compliant.
Previously, MaxBotix Inc., employees would inquire if the application was “Indoor” or “Outdoor”; this new guide poses the questions “Is the application 'Protected' or 'Non-Protected'?”
We invite you to use the new Sensor Selection Guide for new sensor applications. If an application is not mentioned, our technical support representatives will be glad to assist you in selecting the appropriate sensor.
