Looking for a distance sensor that will get you precise readings in the 1mm range? Solarbotics now offers a line of highly precise Maxbotix Ultrasonic Sensors.

Description [Hide]

The HRLV‑MaxSonar‑EZ1 is a good, low-cost starting place for a customer not sure of which HRLV‑MaxSonar‑EZ sensor to use. This sensor is a great choice for use where sensitivity is needed along with side object rejection. This family of sensors also has very low current draw of ~3mA.


  • Cost-effective solution where millimeter precision range-findings are needed
  • Virtually no sensor dead zone, objects closer than 30 cm will typically range as 30 cm
  • Internal temperature compensation
  • Sensor component allows users to lower the cost of their systems without sacrificing performance
  • Read from all sensor outputs: Analog Voltage, RS232 or TTL Serial, and Digital: Pulse Width Signal
  • Great for people detection applications
  • Small, light weight module, designed for easy integration into your project or product
  • Option external temperature compensation via HR‑MaxTemp
  • Tolerates outside noise sources
  • Firmware filtering for better noise tolerance and clutter rejection
  • Real-time automatic calibration (voltage, humidity, ambient noise)


  • Resolution of 1‑mm
  • 42kHz ultrasonic sensor measures distance to objects
  • 10Hz reading rate
  • Maximum range of 5000 mm (195 inches)
  • Operates from 2.5V-5.5V
  • Low 3.1mA average current requirement
  • Operational temperature from -15˚C to +65˚C (+5˚F to +149˚F)
  • RoHS compliant
