Sensors For All Environments

Test These First!

HRXL-MaxSonar-WRS outdoor ultrasonic snow depth sensor


AN | PW | Serial

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.)

Snow Depth Ultrasonic Sensors represent a pivotal advancement in measuring and monitoring snow levels. These sensors provide accurate and reliable data on snow depth, crucial for various commercial operations.

MaxBotix stands at the forefront of this technology. Offering cutting-edge solutions, MaxBotix is your go-to source for high-quality ultrasonic sensors. Keep reading to discover how these sensors can revolutionize your snow depth measurement needs.

Understanding Snow Depth Ultrasonic Sensors

Snow Depth Ultrasonic Sensors operate by emitting ultrasonic waves towards the snow surface. The time taken for these waves to bounce back to the sensor is used to calculate the snow depth accurately. This technology is especially valuable in environments where snow depth and snow density are critical factors.

One of the key features of these sensors is their ability to function effectively across a wide temperature range. This ensures accurate readings even in extremely cold conditions. Additionally, the sensors are equipped with temperature compensation capabilities, which adjust the readings based on the air temperature, enhancing their accuracy.

The maximum cable length of these sensors is also a significant advantage. It allows for flexible installation, ensuring that the sensors can be positioned in the most optimal locations for data collection, irrespective of the distance from the monitoring station.
