135 – How Salt Water Affects Electronics

Key Takeaways Know the affects of saltwater on electronics See how saltwater damages electronics Learn how to clean off saltwater residue Pure distilled water does not conduct electricity and will not damage most electrical equipment that is clean and free of debris. Tap water is not pure water because it mixes with polarized minerals as

124 – Important Considerations for Using an Ultrasonic Sensor Inside of a Pipe

Key Takeaways Successful operation of an ultrasonic sensor inside a pipe has strict pipe requirements Ultrasonic sensor performance is limited by the principles of physics It is possible to get accurate results in a pipe, however, many factors must be accounted for to achieve success Many customers have requested the option to mount an ultrasonic

123 – Resolution, Precision & Accuracy

Key Takeaways Resolution indicates the smallest reading or change in readings that can be reported Precision indicates the smallest reading that can be taken repeatedly and reliably Accuracy indicates how close the reading is to the true distance When it comes down to it, you purchase a rangefinder for the range readings. The success of

103 – Cube Corner Reflectors

Illustration 1: Two common shapes of corner reflectors. Sometimes when using an ultrasonic sensor, users experience detection of unwanted objects that appear outside the expected beam pattern. These types of detections are the result of reflectors present in the environment. Corner reflectors can be surprisingly small, yet present a large reflection back to the sensor.Certain

077 – HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WRS Accuracy Test

Ultrasonic snow depth sensors from MaxBotix Inc., feature high range stability during outdoor operation. We believe that our sensor’s performance meet or exceed that of our competitors, yet feature a much lower cost.Presented is our ultrasonic sensor’s performance, from the MB7354, compared with the performance of the Judd Ultrasonic Snow Depth Sensor and Campbell Scientific

069 – HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR Extreme Duty Sensors

MaxBotix Inc., thanks guest writer Tim Gallagher who shares his experience with the MB7369 while transporting heavy equipment. 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

063 – MB7360 Multi‑Sensor Test and Results

MaxBotix Inc., has recently tested operation of our MB7360 HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR in a multi-sensor environment. The testing was conducted from 11/15/2012 to 11/19/2012. Test Setup The following presents the test data from a four day, three sensor test to verify multi­sensor operation for the MB7360 ultrasonic sensor. The sensors tested were the MB7360 in free run

057 – HR‑MaxSonar Accuracy Test

Wow! We have come out of a wonderful spring and summer of innovation.We just conducted an engineering test of the accuracy of our lowest-cost line of high-resolution sensors, the HRLV-MaxSonar-EZ. The two graphs show 1000 distance measurements each to a bar target at 500mm and 1000mm respectively. The test demonstrates how accurately our sensors measure

050 – HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR Tank Test

Tank sensors are an important part of industrial automation. MaxBotix Inc., recently performed a liquid level measurement test at our facility. This test ran from July 13, 2012 until July 16, 2012. The test was conducted by filling a bin with water and recording readings from the ultrasonic sensor using the serial connection while the

012 – MaxSonar Acoustic Noise Tolerance

It’s a little known fact that all of our MaxSonar products have been designed with a high acoustic noise tolerance. This means that the MaxSonar sensors from all of our product lines work to reduce or eliminate false detections caused by external noise sources. While acoustic noise tolerance is only a small part of our

002 – Swinging Ball Test

The primary goal during the building of the original LV-MaxSonar-EZ1 was to make a high performance ultrasonic range finder that provided readings, so stable, that unless the object moved, the readings didn’t vary. This was the first and primary goal during the initial design of the LV-MaxSonar-EZ1, these goals have continued and been improved upon

001 – MaxSonar Reliability Demonstration (MTBF)

To read the full PDF article click here: This test was conducted to verify and document the reliability of the MaxBotix Inc., MaxSonar product lines. Test parameters were selected that, if met, would establish and verify a mean time between failure (MTBF) of at least 200,000 hours. Additionally, industry practice states that product performance at
