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-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.
The XL-MaxSonar-EZ0 offers the widest and most sensitive beam pattern of any indoor sensor we currently offer. This makes the XL-MaxSonar-EZ0 an excellent choice wherever wide beam detection, reliable people detection, or reliable small obstacle detection are required.
