Scigiene’s Professional Gen2 Ultrasonic Sensor can be used in a variety of applications for measuring distances between the sensor and objects in its path. Gen 2 ultrasonic sensors are imperviousness to target surface and color, and feature autocalibration algorithms which allow them to adapt to variable environmental conditions and compensate for temperature and humidity effects.
The Ultrasonic Sensor sends out a
high-frequency sound pulse and then times how long it takes for the echo of the
sound to reflect back. The sensor has 2 openings on its front. One opening
transmits ultrasonic waves, (like a tiny speaker), the other receives them,
(like a tiny microphone). The ultrasonic sensor uses the speed of sound to and
time difference between sending and receiving the sound pulse to determine the
distance to an object. It will take readings at set intervals and report the
data back to the software portal where the information is processed to display
distance and alert users if a defined condition is met. All sensor data is then
stored for historical analysis.
