I like their sensors, and they have a sale for one of their narrow
"long range" sensors.

Subject: MaxBotix Inc., announces the release of the new
HRXL-MaxSonar(tm) WR Sensors

The HRXL-MaxSonar-WR sensor, the most accurate sensor in the MaxBotix
Inc., sensor lineup features stable 1mm resolution, target size
compensation, temperature compensation, supply voltage compensation,
superior rejection of outside noise sources, and easy to use.
Applications include level sensing such as snow, water, tanks, and

The 1mm resolution is so stable, that when measuring typical objects
at a distance of one meter, the readings do not change by more than
1mm. The HRXL-MaxSonar-WR is 100% factory calibrated and tested before
it is bagged and shipped. This ensures proper sensor operation and
consistent performance from sensor to sensor.

The HRXL-MaxSonar-WR sensor line correctly compensates for target size
differences. This means that, if an object is large enough to be
detected, the sensor will report the same distance regardless of
target size.

The noise rejection characteristics of the HRXL-MaxSonar-WR are now
even better than the previous MaxSonar products, and will work in the
presence of many more electrical or acoustic noise sources with higher
amplitudes. Most range readings are accurately reported, but if the
range readings are affected, the effect is typically less than 5mm.

An internal temperature sensor on the HRXL-MaxSonar-WR sensor allows
for accurate speed of sound temperature compensation. An external
temperature sensor can allow more accurate measurement of the air
temperature in the sensors environment. The external temperature
sensor, the HR-MaxTemp, is available as an option for $4.95 (MSRP).

The HRXL-MaxSonar-WR comes with the easy to use outputs and the
standard pin configuration of the previous MaxSonar products. In
addition to the three standard sensor outputs of RS232 serial, Analog
Voltage, and Pulse Width, there is now TTL serial output on select

The MB7360 uses RS232 as the Pin 5 Serial output and the MB7380 uses
TTL as the Pin 5 serial output.

The finished assembly is a small unit that weighs 50 grams, and
operates from 2.7V to 5.5V with less than 3mA current draw. The
HRXL-MaxSonar-WR is available at www.maxbotix.com for a price of
$109.95 (MSRP).

The HRXL-MaxSonar(tm)-WR is available at www.maxbotix.com for a price of
$109.95 (MSRP).

We believe, that you will experience MaxBotix(R) Inc., to be the
undisputed leader in low cost, high performance ultrasonic sensor
components available.
