Description: This outdoor sensor provides very short to long distance detection and ranging in a compact, robust PVC housing. The ultrasonic sensor meets the IP67 water intrusion standard and matches standard electrical ¾-inch PVC pipe fittings.
High output acoustic power combined with continuously variable gain, real-time background automatic calibration, real-time waveform signature analysis, and noise rejection algorithms results in virtually noise free distance readings. This holds true even in the presence of many of the various acoustic or electrical noise sources. The HRXL-MaxSonar-WR sensors are factory calibrated to match narrow sensor beam patterns and provide reliable long range detection zones.

There is a tutorial from MaxBotix that shows you how to connect ultrasonic sensors to Raspberry Pis => [ http://www.maxbotix.com/Raspberry-Pi-with-Ultrasonic-Sensors-144/ ]. The Ultrasonic Range Finder - HRXL-MaxSonar-WR’s manufacturer part number is MB7360. Looking at the application notes and checking the datasheet on page 3 for the MB7360 [ https://cdn.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Kits/HRXL-MaxSonar-WR_Datasheet.pdf ], it looks like the serial output is RS232 like the sensors listed under “Ultrasonic Sensors that Require an Inverter” .
Therefore, you would need to follow the tutorial and use a serial inverter in order to use it with the Raspberry Pi.
