MB1330 XL-MaxSonar-AE3

High Performance Ultrasonic Rangefinder

Product Description

The XL‑MaxSonar‑AE3 has high noise tolerance and a narrow beam with more sensitivity than the MB1340. The XL-MaxSonar-AE3 also offers increased sensitivity and a longer detection distance for small and medium sized targets.

The sensor is small in size, yet the high output acoustic power combined with continuously variable gain, real-time background automatic calibration, real-time waveform signature analysis, and real-time noise rejection algorithms results in virtually noise free distance readings for most users. This holds true even in the presence of many of the various acoustic or electrical noise sources. The XL‑MaxSonar‑AE sensor line is factory calibrated to match the sensor beam patterns and provides a long range detection zone.
