The XL-MaxSonar-WR sensors are housed in a rugged PVC casing designed to meet IP67 water intrusion regulations. As a result of a narrow beam pattern, the waterproof sonar sensor provides varying distance detection and ranging between short to long distance. All models feature high power output, auto calibration, automatic calibration, noise exclusion, and factory calibrated beam patterns. Additionally, while select models include pulse width and real-time analog envelope output, all models are available with analog voltage and serial digital output.
The Controlled Narrow Beam Shape
Comparatively, other waterproof sonar sensors and ultrasonic products suffer from frequent side lobe detection that—unfortunately—can falsely trigger on objects to the sides or behind the sensor. By offering a controlled and precise narrow beam, the XL-MaxSonar-WR does not. In other words, the central beam affords long range sensitivity so you won’t have to worry about the sensor detecting objects that are not in its line of sight.
