MaxBotix Snow Depth Sensors operate in –40Cº to 65Cº temperatures with a 5,000-mm maximum range. The sensors include responsive accurate temperature compensation. They perform well during heavy snowfall conditions and provide continued performance during high-wind conditions.
The sensors feature a 200,000-h mean time before failure (MTBF). Their low-power consumption enables them to operate in battery-based systems for extended periods of time (or solar powered systems indefinitely), which eases maintenance requirements and enables remote installations.
There are six different Snow Depth Sensors available. The sensors are equipped for the following interface controls: Pulse Width, Analog Voltage, and Serial data RS232 (MB7354) or TTL (MB7374).
The Snow Depth Sensors cost $149.99.
