The HR-USB-EZ sensor line provides high accuracy and high resolution ultrasonic proximity detection and ranging in air, in a package less than one cubic inch. This sensor line features 1mm resolution, target-size and operating-voltage compensation for improved accuracy, superior rejection of outside noise sources, internal speed-of-sound temperature compensation and optional external speed-of-sound temperature compensation. This ultrasonic sensor detects objects from 1mm to 5meters, senses range to objects from 30cm to 5meters, with large objects closer than 30cm typically reported as 30cm.

  • USB interface
  • Resolution of 1 mm
  • Multi-sensor operation
  • ~250mS between range readings
  • Maximum Range of 5000 mm (196 inches)
  • 42kHz Ultrasonic sensor measures distance to objects
  • RoHS compliant
  • Virtually no sensor dead zone, objects closer than 30 cm range as 30 cm
  • Small, light weight module
  • Designed for easy integration into your project or product
  • Great starting point for users unsure of which sensor to use
