Features of the MB2530, IRXL-MaxSonar-CS3, include one centimeter resolution, an excellent blend of large object detection and side object rejection, range information from 50cm to 1650cm, a 1.8Hz read rate, and various output options: pulse-width, analog voltage, and RS232 serial.
This sensor, unlike many serving this application, was fully tested and verified to work in extreme temperatures from -40°C to +65°C.
This makes the MB2530 a great choice for cargo monitoring applications.
The MB2530 from the IRXL‑MaxSonar‑CS 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 MB2530 provides optical reflectance based detection combined with sonar to provide virtually 100% detection of objects.
