The MaxSonar-EZ0 is a very tight-packaged, high-sensitivity single-element sonar module. Much like the very popular EZ1 module, the EZ0 offers higher sensitivity and slightly different coverage pattern
The MaxSonar-EZ0 is very similar to the very popular EZ1 , which is one of the smallest, most efficient, sonar (ultrasonic) ranging systems available. The MaxSonar-EZ0 offers higher sensitivity and therefore a greater coverage pattern making it much more sensitive to smaller objects. It has a detection range of over 5' seeing a 1/8" diameter rod! The general detection specification is up to 254-inches (6.45 meters / 21.1 ft.), reporting back in 1" increments!
The interface output formats included are pulse width output, analog voltage output, and serial output (TTL).
