Making your Design experience so much Better - Download and utilize MaxBotix 3D CAD Models
Good news Designers – we now have downloadable 3D CAD models (in multiple formats) of our ultrasonic sensors! Designers and Engineers can utilize these models for System integration design or free designing, and will save you time, money, and resources. STL files allow you to 3D print your own life-size model of our parts.
The models are easy to use. Simply select a sensor, look below the 'Product 3D Models' title in all of the product pages, select your file type, save the file, and import into your system. Easy!!!
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.
MaxBotix Inc., at Robotics Alley
We had a blast at the Robotics Alley Conference and Expo November 12th & 13th, 2013. We saw several of the display robots using our sensors. This was a great opportunity for us to see all the unique and exciting advances in robotics and autonomous technologies.
MaxBotix Inc., Would Like to wish Everyone a Merry Christmas!
We would like to take time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. This year has brought many wonderful, positive changes to MaxBotix Inc. We would personally like to thank everyone that helped make it possible, from our loyal customers, vendors, distributors, and to our great staff.
Last year we had an enjoyable time watching teams creating robots during Ultimate Ascent competitions. There were many great robots made, and from what we see lots of creative students working on the robots.
Like we have done the last several years, our Facebook Page will be used to communicate questions that have been asked to us as well our answers. We ask that any questions you have regarding our sensors are emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org to protect team privacy
This has been an exciting year of growth at MaxBotix Inc. As of May 2013, our operations are now in a newly remodeled 22,000 square foot building (with 23 attached acres for further construction). In this new facility we have continued, all year, to add people to our wonderful staff. Our continued commitment to quality, conformance, performance, and price leadership has created new markets for ultrasonic sensors. In addition, our ultrasonic distance sensor performance, and our product value (price/performance) leadership allows us to also penetrate the well established ultrasonic sensor markets. We continue giving thanks to Jesus for all He has done for MaxBotix Inc., our employees, our customers, and our suppliers.
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. This solution quickly connects you to the real-world information you want from a variety of devices. 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.
The Wireless Endpoint Pro includes: the ability to read the serial output of MaxBotix Inc sensors, monitoring 0-20mA sensors, 10 second or 121 second update rate, monitoring up to a total of 16 sensors, and up to a 1 mile range between Xbee Pro radio units.
We are excited to announce that all our parts are officially CE compliant! Our products are ready for European users! Declarations of conformity are available to be downloaded.
Through rigorous testing by engineers, we have revealed that our products have always been compliant with CE regulations. So the wait is finally over as we are now putting CE markings on all our products and are ready to expand our European market.
Presented is our sensor's performance, from the MB7354, compared with the performance of the Jud Ultrasonic Snow Depth Sensor and Campbell Scientific SR-50 sensor.
MaxSonar sensors now come with a TTL serial output in our HRLV‑MaxSonar‑EZ and HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR sensor lines. With this new output interface, MaxSonars are compatible with many more devices than before. This includes the popular Raspberry Pi micro‑computer.
MaxBotix Inc., is glad to provide this tutorial on connecting MaxSonar sensors to the Raspberry Pi and reading the range output of the sensor.
This tutorial includes: equipment needed, code commands to configure the Raspberry Pi I/O pins, installing the terminal program, and accessing the range output.
