The MB7072 XL-MaxSonar-WRA1 offers an additional stability filter for all outputted range readings. This provides users with an extra layer of protection from noise and anomalous readings.
The weather resistant MB7072 XL-MaxSonar-WRA is a rugged ultrasonic sensor component module. This outdoor sensor provides very short to long distance detection and ranging in a compact, robust PVC housing. The ultrasonic sensor meets the IP67 water intrusion standard and matches standard electrical 3/4‑inch PVC pipe fittings.
High output acoustic power combined with continuously variable gain, real‑time background automatic calibration, real‑time waveform signature analysis, and noise rejection algorithms results in virtually noise free distance readings. This holds true even in the presence of many of the various acoustic or electrical noise sources. The XL‑MaxSonar-WR sensors are factory calibrated to match narrow sensor beam patterns and provide reliable long range detection zones.
MB7062 is an pulse width output version of this sensor.
MB7070 is the standard version of this sensor.
MB7092 is an advanced filtered version of this sensor.
Models with additional chemical resistance are available
The F-Option design modification provides our weather resistant sensors with extra protection against corrosive chemical environments. Ask for the F-Option when ordering.
