The SCXL-MaxSonar-WRS is a snow depth sensor that features effective self-cleaning capabilities designed to minimalize the influence of condensation in closed or high-moisture (frost, dew, etc.) conditions. This IP67 weather resistance sensor is a cost-effective solution suited for a range of applications, but especially those where precision range-finding, low-voltage operation, space saving, and self-cleaning is a must. This innovative snow sensor component module permits users of other, more costly precision rangefinders to reduce the overall cost of their systems without sacrificing performance.
With an IP67 weather resistant rating, the SCXL-MaxSonar-WRS self-cleaning snow sensor line offers high-accuracy and high-resolution ultrasonic proximity detection. It also provides ranging in air and ranging in high-sensitivity. For better accuracy, the sensor line features 1-mm resolution target-size and operating-voltage compensation. This also allows for superior external noise rejection and increased internal speed of sound temperature compensation with the option for external speed-of-sound temperature compensation. The SCXL MaxSonar-WRS self-cleaning snow depth measurement sensors are all available with a 5-meter maximum range. Models are available with the following outputs: Pulse Width, Analog Voltage, RS232 Serial (select models), or TTL Serial (select models).
