-Very accurate distance measuring in the 10cm to 30cm.
-Good for object detection (e.g. object moving by)
-No influence from object materials, what can be the case with IR-based distance sensors -Rather small measuring range (10cm to 30cm)
-Programming is a bit 'tricky' if you are new to microchip programming. It appears that sometimes, different hardware ... Read more
this sensor can do the job well for simple projects. works well with arduinos it is a very simple sensor, requires a deeper knowledge of how it works as well as programming skills to be able to operate it correctly. Make sure you read the data sheet or try to find pre made code to run it. It also doesn't work very well at short ranges (under 5 cm) and ... Read more
Price is very good, for this device. It can't meassure very long distances but, for detecion of movemant closeby it is perfect or hit detection on a robot A con is that they deliver different versions if you order them seperatly The product works quite well on my line tracking robot to avoid hitting things on his way Perfect product if you are into ...

Easy to use, well documented ... on the web.
In French: Precis.
Facile à utiliser, bien documenté... sur le web. Range, depending on the material and the angle, it is difficult to exceed 2.5 meters, but we always want more ...

Excellent ultrasonic module has arrived safely and in good condition, is REALLY EASY to use only necessary to send a trigger signal and wait for you to return an echo, the idea of this module is measurement of distance and obstacles. and the best way to use is coupled to a microcontroller. Anyway, it is very easy to use and configure. No problems, doing ... Read more
Goes from 0cm to farther than 2,5m
four pin interface
unbeatable price I found nothing bad about it. You can connect it to one pin of your microcontroller if you wire trig and echo together and use program or sketch for three pin PING sensor. And putting it on top of a servo-turned jack connection will make it into powerful sonar ... Read more
Works Great! No False Readings at all! Very Accurate Readings! Nice and Small to use for embedded applications. Easy to Use. Nothing that I can think of. It's just that good! Good to be used to detect when people and animals are near. Could be used in a security system, and lots of other things. It can be used to make a device for hunting that will ... Read more
I had my time with sonars and this one is cool one especially because of it's price and quality. The 4-pin design makes it clear how to use it without runtime pinmode switching (unlike the 3-pin sonars). It's nice in close-range measures. It's far from the stated measurement distance and the reading speed could also be faster. The 4-pin design can be ... Read more
Build quality is good. Works as advertised, however I wish the range was better. Price is unbeatable. I may need to tweak the code a bit, but using tutorials found in the Internet, the range isn't much better than 2-3 feet. Using tutorials from the Internet made it easy to setup. Would have been nice if it came with at least a spec sheet. You won't ... Read more
It is relative cheap
Not that hard to use Suffers from a common 200ms no target "bug" compared to the datasheet available from other sites
(They specify 38ms) http://www.mentby.com/paul-bouchier/ultrasonic-sensor.html 450cm range A manual sure would have been nice!!! The range specified (450cm) seems a bit optimistic. A module that could do ... Read more
