Ultrasonic Rangefinders Feature Custom Beam Width
MaxBotix, Inc. announces its LV-MaxSonar sensor with a factory calibrated beam width, allowing precision beam angles. Five ultrasonic rangefinders in the line are calibrated to a specific beam width, allowing users to select the sensor that provides the beam width of choice. The sensor beam width is widest for the model EZ0 that is well suited for users needing a high sensitivity or a wide beam width. Each sensor, the EZ1, EZ2, EZ3 and EZ4, is progressively narrower. These ultrasonic rangefinders operate over the voltage range of 2.5V to 5.5V (2 mA typical), provide three simultaneous user outputs (analog voltage, pulse width and serial), fill a volume less than one cubic inch and weigh 4.3 grams.
