MB1030 LV-MaxSonar-EZ3

High Performance Ultrasonic Rangefinder

Product Description

Features of the MB1030, LV-MaxSonar-EZ3, include one-inch resolution, a narrow beam as well as excellent side object rejection, range information from 6 inches to 254 inches, a 20Hz read rate, and various output options: pulse-width, analog voltage, and RS232 serial.

The MB1030 has slightly wider beam width than the MB1040 which makes it a good choice for applications where the MB1043 does not have enough sensitivity.

The MB1030 from the LV‑MaxSonar‑EZ line of sensors is a very small, less than one cubic inch, ultrasonic sensor component module. This sensor comes with mounting holes provided on the circuit board for easy installation in nearly all applications.

In addition, the MB1030 learns the ringdown pattern when commanded to start ranging. This helps the sensor to learn the environment and can help the sensor ignore obstacles that are present at power-up.
