Overview

Maxbotix’s family of sonar range finders uses this transceiver to send 42 kHz sonar pulses and detect the echoes of those pulses, which in turn allows for the calculation of the distance from the transceiver to the reflecting object. This transducer is great for applications that need to transmit or receive ultrasonic waves.
