MB7554 Ultrasonic Sensor
ANPWSerial

MB7554 Ultrasonic Sensor

Great for installations that use multiple sensors to monitor several parking stalls. This sensor can detect vehicles to ~5 meters. The 3/4″ NPT mounting means easy installation using standard electrical boxes.

XL‑MaxSonar‑WR Line
ANPWRS232

XL‑MaxSonar‑WR Line

Ultra-compact for installations with custom mounting. Multiple sensor installations require chaining or triggered firing.

MB7040 Ultrasonic Sensor
I2C

MB7040 Ultrasonic Sensor

Uses the I2C communication protocol for easy wiring. This sensor line is available in full size or compact housings for easy mounting and configuration.

MB7460 Ultrasonic Sensor
4-20

MB7460 Ultrasonic Sensor

4-20mA output for reliable long distance wiring. This sensor line is available in full size or compact housings for easy mounting and configuration. Great for installations that use multiple sensors to monitor several parking stalls

4-20HR‑MaxSonar‑WR
4-20

4-20HR‑MaxSonar‑WR Line

4-20mA output for reliable long distance wiring. This sensor line is available in full size or compact housings for easy mounting and configuration. Great for installations that use multiple sensors to monitor several parking stalls.

MB7360 Ultrasonic Sensor
ANPWRS232

MB7360 Ultrasonic Sensor

Condensation and weather resistant sensors. Can be installed in multi-sensor environments. Testing is recommended for applications with a high density of sensors. 1mm resolution with a calibrated accuracy.

MB8450 Car Detection Sensor
USB

MB8450 Car Detection Sensor

A USB ultrasonic proximity sensor with a True/False output. Designed for various installations: drive-thru ATMs, fast‑food restaurants, pharmacies, smart parking meters, or outdoor parking garages. Well suited to multi-sensor arrays.

Sensors For Protected / Indoor Use

Try These First!

ParkSonar-EZ Line
LogicRS232

ParkSonar-EZ Line

Provides a simple ‘True/False’ signal to indicate that a parking stall is available or occupied. Users can select the required trigger distance by model number. Large numbers of sensors can be deployed in one multi-sensor environment without interference.

MB1222 Ultrasonic Sensor
I2C

MB1222 Ultrasonic Sensor

I2C interface allows for a 4-wire parallel wiring method. The MB1222 offers similar sensitivity characteristics to the ParkSonar-EZ models. These sensors output range information so user code can be set to determine the appropriate trigger distance. Sensor firing should be controlled to eliminate cross talk.
