Description: This is the fantastically easy to use sensor from Maxbotix. We are extremely pleased with the size, quality, and ease of use of this little range finder. The serial interface is a bit odd (it’s RS232 instead of standard TTL), but the PWM and Analog interfaces will allow any micro to listen easily enough. The sensor provides very accurate readings of 0 to 255 inches (0 to 6.45m) in 1 inch increments with little or no dead zone!
Maxbotix is offering the EZ0, EZ1, EZ2, EZ3, and EZ4 with progressively narrower beam angles allowing the sensor to match the application. Please see beam width explanation below.
Control up to 10 sensors with only two pins! Checkout the Maxbotix FAQ listed below.

The range finding is very accurate. Its doing a wonderful job for its size and price
Worked as advertised. Really nice.
When using more than one on a project, some trial and error may be necessary to get them to work using the Maxbotix wiring schemes. Micro and millisecond timing using Arduinos and other controllers is not accurate so actual pulse timing may not correspond to your coding.
Super easy to hook up and start using in my project
