The MaxBotix Snow Depth Sensors are rated to operate in temperatures between -40Cº to +65Cº with a maximum range of 5000mm. Their sensors have been proven and optimized, yielding design solutions that previously hindered competing sensors, in a real world snow environment tested at their facility located in the heart of Minnesota. MTBF of 200,000+ hours and the low power consumption easily allow the sensor to operate in battery based systems for extended periods of time (or solar powered systems indefinitely) easing maintenance requirements and allowing for remote installations. At a low cost of $149.99 (MSRP) the use of these new snow sensors include improved performance during heavy snowfall conditions, responsive accurate temperature compensation, and continued performance during high wind conditions. Equipped to apply to any of these interface controls: Pulse Width, Analog Voltage, Serial data - RS232 (MB7354) or TTL (MB7374).
