Ranges from 6 inches to 254 inches with a 20Hz read rate. Widest detection field. Excellent for people detection.
Features of the MB1000, LV-MaxSonar-EZ0, include one-inch resolution, the widest and most sensitive beam pattern of any unit from the LV-MaxSonar-EZ sensor line, short to long distance detection, range information from 6 inches to 254 inches, a 20Hz read rate, and various output options: pulse-width, analog voltage, and RS232 serial.
This makes the MB1000 an excellent choice for use where high sensitivity, wide beam, or people detection is desired.
The MB1000 from the LV-MaxSonar-EZ line of sensors is a very small, less than one cubic inch, ultrasonic sensor component module. This sensor comes with mounting holes provided on the circuit board for easy installation in nearly all applications.
In addition, the MB1000 learns the ringdown pattern when commanded to start ranging. This helps the sensor to learn the environment and can help the sensor ignore obstacles that are present at power-up.
