Snow Depth Applications

MaxBotix Snow Depth Measurement Sensors are an inexpensive solution for remotely measuring snow depth from the sensor to a target. They are easy-to-use, offer cost-effective and very suitable ultrasonic sensors for extreme weather conditions and so for alpine and high alpine terrain.

Sensors For All Environments

HRXL-MaxSonar-WRS Line
ANPWSerial

HRXL-MaxSonar-WRS Line

Specially designed and calibrated for snow depth measurement. The high gain allows users to detect snow depth changes as small as 3mm or better in real-world tests. (Stability of 1mm is common but can be disrupted by rapid temperature swings and high winds. 3mm thresholds reflect real-world results and far exceed industry standards of 7-12mm thresholds.)

SCXL-MaxSonar-WRS Line
ANPWSerial

SCXL-MaxSonar-WRS Line

Shares the same features as the HRXL-WRS sensors but adds a self-cleaning transducer to remove ice build-up that may occur in some environments. Multi-sensor installations require alternating readings between sensors.

MB7354 Ultrasonic Sensor
ANPWRS232

MB7354 Ultrasonic Sensor

Designed and optimized for snow depth measurement. Internal filtering, allows the sensor to operate and range properly even with the heaviest snowfall. Easy to integrate with many data-loggers.

MB7554 Ultrasonic Sensor
ANPWRS232

MB7554 Ultrasonic Sensor

Shares the same features as the MB7354 but adds a self-cleaning transducer to remove ice build-up.
