Sensors For All Environments

Test These First!

HRXL-MaxSonar-WRS outdoor ultrasonic snow depth sensor

HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WRS

Specially designed and calibrated for snow depth measurement. The high gain allows users to detect snow depth changes as small as 3mm or better in real-world tests. (Stability of 1mm is common but can be disrupted by rapid temperature swings and high winds. 3mm thresholds reflect real-world results and far exceed industry standards of 7-12mm thresholds.)

scxl-maxsonar-wrs outdoor ultrasonic snow depth sensor

SCXL‑MaxSonar‑WRS

Shares the same features as the HRXL-WRS sensors but adds a self-cleaning transducer to remove ice build-up that may occur in some environments. Multi-sensor installations require alternating readings between sensors.
