The LV‑MaxSonar‑EZ0 has the widest and most sensitive beam pattern of any unit from LV‑MaxSonar‑EZ sensor line. This makes the LV‑MaxSonar‑EZ0 an excellent choice for use where high sensitivity, wide beam, or people detection is desired.
This is the fantastically easy to use sensor from Maxbotix. We are extremely pleased with the size, quality, and ease of use of this little range finder. The serial interface is a bit odd (it's RS232 instead of standard TTL), but the PWM and Analog interfaces will allow any micro to listen easily enough. The sensor provides very accurate readings of 0 to 255 inches (0 to 6.45m) in 1 inch increments with little or no dead zone!
Maxbotix is offering the EZ0, EZ1, EZ2, EZ3, and EZ4 with progressively narrower beam angles allowing the sensor to match the application. Please see beam width explanation below.
Control up to 10 sensors with only two pins! Checkout the Maxbotix FAQ in the resources tab.
Note:The Maxbotix Ultrasonic Sensors are now fully CE certified.
