Features of the MB1200, XL-MaxSonar-EZ0, include centimeter resolution, the widest and most sensitive beam pattern of any unit from the XL‑MaxSonar‑EZ sensor line, short to long distance detection, range information from 25cm to 765cm, a 10Hz read rate, and various output options: pulse-width, analog voltage, and RS232 serial.
This makes the MB1200 an excellent choice for use where high sensitivity, wide beam, or people detection is desired.
The MB1200 from the XL‑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 MB1200 offers virtually noise free distance readings through the use of high-output acoustic power combined with continuously variable gain, real‑time background automatic calibration, real‑time waveform signature analysis, and noise rejection algorithms. This holds true even in the presence of many of the various acoustic or electrical noise sources.
Variations on this sensor model
MB1260 is the 10-meter version of this sensor.
