Description

  • Weatherproof Ultrasonic Sensor w/ Separate Probe
  • Features detectable ranges from 0.2 to 6m
  • Offers 1 mm resolution
  • Works at an input voltage of 3.3 to 5V DC

The Weatherproof Ultrasonic Sensor w/ Separate Probe is suitable for outdoor applications such as car reversing sensors, security alarms, industrial inspection, etc.

As most other ultrasonic distance sensors aren't waterproof it can be a problem as you need your project to withstand the elements outdoors. No need to worry anymore! This sensor is weatherproof and the latest Version 2.0 can work at 3.3-5 V, while it provides several modes to choose from.

Perfect

Works great, using with an arduino and utilizing a median filter library to stabilize readings. Great price and fast delivery.

Works OK

really weatherproof

Overall good

Does what it's supposed to do and seems to do it well. However keep in mind that all kinds of "interference" that obstructs from making a clear reading like moving objects/less easily detectable objects like clothing/isolation/water… needs to be filtered out yourself, which is CPU consuming or requires a dedicated extra MCU for filtering.

Good product

The pinout is the exact same as the more common HC-SR04 ultrasonic range finder, so I was easily able to replace the component in-place on my breadboard. This one seems slightly noisier than the ones with a separate transmitter/receiver, but this one has a much more convenient form factor and a more weatherproof design.
