  • 1. Selection Guide Choose the Proper Ultrasonic Sensor for your Application This guide will help you select the correct MaxSonar® sensor for your use. We believe that the MaxSonar® sensors are among the easiest to use ultrasonic rangefinders available. Start Here Outdoor Use Indoor Use Easy to use (or rugged (or protected ultrasonic environments) environments) rangefinder IP67 Rated • Power-up • Real-time auto • Real-time auto calibration calibration calibration • Very low cost • Low cost • Low cost • Very small size • Very small size • Compact size Calibration High accuracy Real-time analog High accuracy Real-time analog compensates pulse width envelope pulse width envelope for user output output output output mounting (and others) (and others) (and others) (and others) LV-MaxSonar-EZ XL-MaxSonar-EZ XL-MaxSonar-AE XL-MaxSonar-WR XL-MaxSonar-WRA Continued on page 2 Continued on page 2 Continued on page 2 Continued on page 2 Continued on page 2 Page 1MaxBotix® Inc.
