The MB7078 XL-MaxSonar-WRCa offers an additional stability filter for all outputted range readings. This provides users with an extra layer of protection from noise and anomalous readings.

For users that can afford the extra mounting size and weight selecting the similar MB7072 unit is recommended for better performance.

Compact outdoor ultrasonic rangefinder component modules

The weather resistant XL-MaxSonar-WRCA 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.

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 XL‑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 MB7068 is the pulse width output version of this sensor.
The MB7070 is the standard version of this sensor.
The MB7077 is the non-filtered version of this sensor.

Models with additional chemical resistance are available
