Ultrasonic Range Finder     
The MaxSonar-EZ0 and EZ1 are sonar range fnders that offer very short- to long-range detection and ranging in an incredibly small package with ultra-low power consumption. The MaxSonar de-tects objects from 0 inches to 254 inches (6.45 meters) and provides sonar range information from 6 inches out to 254 inches with 1-inch resolution. Objects between 0 inches and 6 inches range as 6 inches. The interface output formats included are pulse width output, analog voltage output, and asynchronous serial digital output. The LV-MaxSonar-EZ0 differs from the LV-MaxSonar-EZ1 in beam shape and sensitivity; the EZ0 has the most sensitivity of the MaxSonar product line, yielding a controlled wide beam with high sensitivity.
