MaxBotix Inc., thanks guest writer Tim Gallagher who shares his experience with the MB7369 while transporting heavy equipment.
MaxBotix Inc., sensors have been successfully used in extreme duty conditions. Large multi-axle trailers, which are used to transport wind energy equipment across the country, hydraulically adjust the ride height of their payload throughout their journey to meet varying conditions. The HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR sensor series withstand the extreme environmental conditions of these trips, and power through the extreme road noise and wind conditions.
MaxBotix Inc., sensors have been successfully used on a number of multi‑copters. (Multi‑copters are also called UAVs, rotorcraft, quadrotor helicopters, or quadcopters.) Even so, many users have had issues getting the sensors to operate reliably. Sensor operation during flight on a quad‑copter is a challenging environment for an ultrasonic sensor to operate reliably. The most obvious issue is the amount of wind turbulence the ultrasonic wave must travel though. Adding to this acoustic noise is the noise the propellers generate.
MaxBotix Inc., has recently tested operation of our MB7360 HRXL‑MaxSonar‑WR in a multi-sensor environment. The testing was conducted from 11/15/2012 to 11/19/2012.
All the test data (about 7.5mil. data points) gathered show there to be no interference from multi-sensor operation for the MB7360 in this test setup.

We would like to thank everyone for their support of MaxBotix Inc., over the past year.
This year we increased our product offering from four product lines, to twelve product lines. Here we have greatly increased the accuracy and usability of our products to include many more uses. In addition, we have increased the physical square footage size our company about nine times. Absolutely amazing growth! Thank-you Jesus!
MaxBotix Inc., has released the USB-ProxSonar-EZ ultrasonic proximity sensor. The USB-ProxSonar-EZ ultrasonic proximity sensor is an easy to use proximity sensor that doubles as an ultrasonic range finder. The USB-ProxSonar-EZ ultrasonic proximity sensor also features an easy to USB interface that uses a standard Micro-B USB cable to connect to a computer.
In this article we have included configuration instructions for the following operating system environments: Windows, Linux, and Apple OS. We have also included the configuration settings for advanced users with their own terminal software.
Wow! We have come out of a wonderful spring and summer of innovation.
We just conducted an engineering test of the accuracy of our lowest-cost line of high-resolution sensors, the HRLV-MaxSonar-EZ. The two graphs show 1000 distance measurements each to a bar target at 500mm and 1000mm respectively.
The test demonstrates how accurately our sensors measure distance, and takes into account the part-to-part consistency, the full operating voltage range, and the reading-to-reading stability. The measured accuracy results speak for themselves. As CEO of MaxBotix Inc., I could not be more pleased with these test results.
Remote monitoring for the MaxSonar is easily available with the help of a bridge device such as the IoBridge IO-204. It has become simpler to integrate a MaxSonar into applications like measuring tide level or fuel level. The IoBridge IO‑204 module allows for remote sensing over the internet. All that is needed is a MaxSonar of preference, the IO-204, high-speed internet connection, and a power source for the IO‑204.
MaxBotix® Inc., HRXL-MaxSonar-WR Tank testing and results. The HRXL-MaxSonar-WR was designed with tank level measurement as one of the primary applications. The HRXL-MaxSonar-WR has 1-mm resolution and stable range readings. This tank test shows the accuracy and stability of the HRXL-MaxSonar-WR sensor in a tank measuring application.
