1128_0 Phidget Sonar Sensor

£48.55 £40.46
This sonar sensor measures the distance of an object using ultrasonic waves.

The Sonar Sensor is a compact high performance ultrasonic rangefinder made by MaxBotix that can detect objects at a distance of 6 to 254 inches (6.45 m) with a 1 inch (25.4 mm)resolution. The sensor automatically calibrates itself when powered up.

The Phidget cable that ships with the 1128 must be soldered to the sensor board; the EZ-1 sensor can then be connected to an analog port on a PhidgetInterface board and controlled through our powerful API.
