MB7586 SCXL-MaxSonar-WRLT

High Performance Ultrasonic Precision Rangefinder

Product Description

The weather resistant SCXL-MaxSonar-WR self‑cleaning sensor 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.

The MB7586 SCXL‑MaxSonar‑WRLT features a self-cleaning transducer to remove condensation and ice buildup when operating in cold conditions. The MB7586 SCXL-MaxSonar-WRLT self‑cleaning ultrasonic sensor also features a maximum range of 10 meters to large targets.

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 SCXL‑MaxSonar-WR sensors are factory calibrated to match narrow sensor beam patterns and provide reliable long-range detection zones.

MB7566 is the RS232 version of this sensor.
MB7580 is the 5‑version of this sensor.

Models with additional chemical resistance are available

The F-Option (IP-68) design modification provides our weather resistant sensors with extra protection against corrosive chemical environments. Ask for the F-Option (IP-68) when ordering.
