USB-ProxSonar®-EZ™ Sensor Line
High performance USB ultrasonic proximity detection sensor
The USB-ProxSonar-EZ ultrasonic proximity sensors feature an easy to use USB interface that connects directly to a computer with a standard Micro-B USB cable. The USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ sensors detect objects in a calibrated detection zone and report when an object (such as a person) enters the detection zone. The target is released after leaving the USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ detection zone.
The USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ ultrasonic proximity sensor provides a component module solution that offers easy integration with USB connectivity, no sensor dead zone, calibrated beam patterns, stable range readings, and a host of other features.
The USB-ProxSonar-EZ4 has a detection zone of ~1 feet and will allow for 15+ simultaneous sensors.
These ultrasonic proximity sensors detect objects in a calibrated detection zone. The USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ sensors report when an object (such as a person) enters the detection zone. The target is released after leaving the USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ detection zone.

Easy to Use Ultrasonic Sensors
The USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ products are low cost ultrasonic proximity sensors that provide a component module solution that offers easy to use outputs, no sensor dead zone, calibrated beam patterns, stable range readings, low power demands, and a host of other features detailed in the product datasheets.
The USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ interface was designed to be very easy and intuitive to use. The interface is an easy to use USB connection.
The Controlled Beam Shape
The USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ offers a controlled beam that is designed to reject small objects (clutter) outside of the central beam area without detecting frivolous or unwanted targets.
Users are encouraged to pick the product with the detection zone that best matches their application. In the USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ product line the product with the longest detection zone is the MB1414. The product with the shortest detection zone is the MB1444.
Each USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ is tested for proper operation at our facility and comes with a factory calibrated beam pattern to help ensure consistent operation of the sensor even from part to part.
In addition to this, the USB‑ProxSonar‑EZ automatically calibrates to its environment after power up, before taking the first reading. Because this power up calibration only occurs on power up, it is recommended that users power off and then on the sensor whenever the voltage, temperature, or humidity conditions change.
