Features of the weather resistant MB8480, Car Detection Sensor, include centimeter resolution, short to long distance detection, range information from 500mm to 5000mm for the nearest detectable target, a ~4Hz read rate, with a TTL serial output.
The MB8480 Car Detection Sensor is a low‑cost vehicle detection sensor that uses ultrasonic technology for non-contact sensing. The MB8480 is designed to be an easy to use sensor for applications where vehicle detection is desired. This sensor is great for applications such as vehicle kiosks, ATMs, and bank drive throughs.
The MB8480 is factory calibrated to match sensor beam patterns and provide reliable long-range detection zones.
In addition, the MB8480 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.
