Using a MaxSonar with ioBridge products have proven to be effective methods of monitoring distance over the internet in real-time from anywhere in the world. Using this system, users were able to watch the build of up hurricane Sandy in real-time. With the new Wireless Endpoint Pro, by ioBridge, pretty much anything can be monitored by remote. The remote based monitoring is website based which means it is accessible through a computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Today, MaxBotix Inc., is responding to customers demand for a reliable, high accuracy, and inexpensive sensors for precision snow depth measurement. The MB7364 & MB7384 HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR Ultrasonic Snow Sensors use high frequency sound to measure the time of flight to the surface of snow. These snow depth sensors are an evolution of our HRXL-MaxSonar-WR product line.

In the real world snow environment, at our facilities in northern Minnesota, this sensor line was proven and optimized, yielding design solutions that previously hindered competing sensors.

MaxBotix Inc., sensors have been successfully used in extreme duty conditions. Large multi-axle trailers, which are used to transport wind energy equipment across the country, hydraulically adjust the ride height of their payload throughout their journey to meet varying conditions. The HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR sensor series withstand the extreme environmental conditions of these trips, and power through the extreme road noise and wind conditions. Even with all this noise, the sensor continues to provide the necessary accurate ground clearance information to the driver who makes sure the payload is in a safe position.

MaxBotix Inc., sensors have been successfully used on a number of multi‑copters. Multi‑copters are also called UAVs, rotorcraft, quadrotor helicopters, or quadcopters. Many users have had issues getting the sensors to operate reliably. Sensor operation during flight on a quad‑copter is a challenging environment for an ultrasonic sensor to operate reliably.

In a time of general economic downsizing, MaxBotix Inc., would like to express thanks to God, our employees, our customers, and our suppliers that have all contributed to another year of super growth at MaxBotix Inc.

This year we increased our product offering from four product lines, to twelve product lines. Here we have greatly increased the accuracy and usability of our products to include many more uses. In addition, we have increased the physical square footage size our company about nine times. Absolutely amazing growth! Thank-you Jesus!

MaxBotix Inc., released the USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ at the Medical Design and Manufacturing Expo that took place October 31st through November 1st, 2012. We featured a live demonstration of three USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ sensors working side by side simultaneously with no interference problems. Our representatives also ran an HRLV‑MaxSonar‑EZ ultrasonic sensor in close proximity with the USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ without any hindrance on any of the sensors.

Remote monitoring for the MaxSonar is easily available with the help of a bridge device such as the ioBridge IO-204. It has become simpler to integrate a MaxSonar into applications like measuring tide level or fuel level. The ioBridge IO‑204 module allows for remote sensing over the internet. All that is needed is a MaxSonar of preference, the IO-204, high-speed internet connection, and a power source for the IO‑204.
