The LV-MaxSonar-EZ0 has the widest and most sensitive beam pattern of any unit from LV-MaxSonar-EZ0 sensor line. This makes the LV-MaxSonar-EZ0 an excellent choice for use where high sensitivity, wide beam, or people detection is desired.
The XL-MaxSonar-WR1 is our most popular weather resistant sensor designed for outdoor detection and ranging.The weather resistant XL-MaxSonar-WR is a rugged ultrasonic sensor component module. This outdoor sensor provides very short to long distance detection and ranging in a compact, robust PVC housing. The ultrasonic sensor meets the IP67 water intrusion standard and matches standard electrical 3/4 inch PVC pipe fittings.
Using reflected IR light, measure the distance of an opaque object 20-150cm away. Requires an IR Distance Adapter to be used with Phidgets. The sensor plugs in the 1101 - IR Distance Adapter using the 30cm interface cable that comes with the 1101.
These ultrasonic proximity sensors detect objects in a calibrated detection zone. The LV-ProxSonar-EZ sensors report when an object (such as a person) enters the detection zone. The target is released after leaving the LV-ProxSonar-EZ detection zone. The LV-ProxSonar-EZ0 has a detection zone of ~7 feet and will allow for 6+ simultaneous sensors.
The LV-MaxSonar-EZ1 is a great choice for use where sensitivity is needed along with side object rejection. The original LV-MaxSonar-EZ products were the first low cost, high quality ultrasonic distance sensors to offer easy to use outputs, no sensor dead zone, calibrated beam patterns, stable range readings, low power demands, and a host of other features.
The LV-MaxSonar-EZ4 is the narrowest beam width sensor that is also the least sensitive to side objects offered in the LV-MaxSonar-EZ sensor line. The LV-MaxSonar-EZ4 is an excellent choice when only larger objects need to be detected.
