The MB7047 I2CXL-MaxSonar-WRC now offers an I2C bus interface in our popular outdoor extra-compact housing. This allows for a simple interface and control for up to 127 sensors on a single I2C bus.

The I2CXL-MaxSonar-WRC offers some of our most popular outdoor ultrasonic rangefinders in an extra-compact housing.

For users that can afford the extra mounting size and weight selecting the similar XL-MaxSonar-WR unit is recommended for better performance.

Compact outdoor ultrasonic rangefinder component modules

The weather resistant I2CXL-MaxSonar-WRC 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 PCV pipe fittings.

High output acoustic power combined with continuously variable gain, real‑time background automatic calibration, real‑time waveform signature analysis, and noise rejection algorithms results in virtually noise free distance readings. This holds true even in the presence of many of the various acoustic or electrical noise sources. The I2CXL‑MaxSonar-WRC sensors are factory calibrated to match narrow sensor beam patterns and provide reliable long range detection zones.

A few of our most popular outdoor modules have been made available in a lighter, more compact, package.

The MB7040 standard version of this sensor.
