MaxBotix Inc., Releases New High Performance, Low Cost, Ultra-Compact Ultrasonic Sensor series

Our most popular sensor is now available in a new design which is physically shorter than any of our current outdoor sensors, allowing easy integration into users’ applications. Our new UCXL‑MaxSonar®‑WR series sensors are flexible, customizable products intended to be integrated with a customer’s system with our horn, or designed for flush mounting into your existing housing. These sensors feature the rugged design, high performance, and calibrated quality that you have come to expect from MaxBotix.

MB7260 with 3d Horn; MB7260, UCXL-MaxSonar-WR

A recommended mounting design is provided through our 3D CAD models (available in multiple formats) to facilitate your design process. The UCXL sensors are RoHS and IP67 compliant provided proper mounting design. The sensor layout offers four conveniently placed mounting holes for design flexibility.

The UCXL-MaxSonar-WR comes with the easy to use outputs and standard pin configuration of the previous MaxSonar products. In addition, the UCXL models come with the three standard sensor outputs of RS232 serial (TTL output available upon request), Analog Voltage, and Pulse Width. We are offering four models: MB7260 WR & MB7270 WRA for integration into a customer’s housing design which includes our recommended horn, and MB7267 WRC & MB7277 WRCA, flush-mounted designs that do not include a horn.

These sensors feature 1cm resolution, operational temperature range from -40˚C to +70˚C (-40˚F to +160˚F), real-time automatic calibration (voltage, humidity, ambient noise), 200,000+ Hours Mean Time Between Failure, an operational voltage range from 3.0-5.5V, with low 3.4mA average current requirement. The UCXL-series sensors are also RoHS Compliant and CE Compliant.

Sensors are available for immediate shipment.

You can order directly from us online or contact MaxBotix, Inc., for further information.
