Patent and Copyright Status

MaxBotix Inc., holds full patent status on the MaxSonar line of ultrasonic rangefinders (patent 7,679,996). At this time, we do not issue licenses for use of our MaxSonar product line circuits or software. MaxBotix Inc. provides circuit information on our MaxSonar® line in our data sheets so our customers can understand the basic circuitry operation of our sensors. From this, advanced users can understand how the sensor operates, and for some, this makes the sensor easier to use. For example, some students have placed this circuit into PSpice, an electrical circuit simulator, and have analyzed our circuit operation. Even so, the circuitry is only part of the MaxBotix® Inc, ultrasonic sensor solution, as the sensor also relies upon internal firmware, and factory calibration.
