How to use a MaxSonar with an ArduinoA number of customers have asked if the Arduino supports talking to the I2C‑MaxSonar sensors over an I2C interface. The short answer is "Yes." MaxBotix staff has worked to provide a clear and easy to follow path to get an I2C‑MaxSonar up and running on your Arduino. Educational information related to this specific I2C implementation has also been provided.

This article is written to assist in configuring I2C-MaxSonar sensors that were shipped after 10/29/14. We have updated our I2C-MaxSonar sensors to support faster speeds and work with the current Arduino Wire() library.

How to use a MaxSonar with an Arduino
The Arduino micro-controller is one of the most popular development boards for electronics enthusiasts. With the ability to control components such as buzzers, LED’s, servos, motors, and LCD’s, Arduinos have become the go-to selection for users that are looking to start into electronics, firmware coding, or automation.
With three simple interfaces, it is easy to connect a MaxSonar to an Arduino. For assistance with setup, coding, and wiring, MaxBotix Inc., has made it easier to interface our sensors with an Arduino.

How to use a MaxSonar with an Arduino
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. We walk you through how to setup a Wireless Endpoint Pro and how to interface our sensor with this module.

Web Based Remote Monitoring a MaxSonar

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.
