    Hello, this is Tom Bonar from MaxBotix Inc. We have recently designed and released a sensor that has snow depth measurement as one of the recommended application uses. Like shardbearer stated, typically ultrasonic sensors are not recommended with soft fluffy targets.

    The new MB7363 (http://maxbotix.com/Ultrasonic_Sensors/MB7363.htm) sensor has a high acoustic gain, this makes the sensor recommended for applications that have minimal ultrasonic sound reflected back to the sensor. With snow falling in Minnesota, our engineers are running this sensor outside our facility and have found the sensor to have very good results even with light snow fall.

    Our engineers recommend that the HR-MaxTemp be used in conjunction with the MB7363 for the best accuracy. When mounting the HR-MaxTemp you will want to make sure that the mounting is between the sensor and the ground.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Best regards,

    Hello, this is Scott from MaxBotix Inc. I’m glad to support you. All MaxBotix Inc., employees are legally required to clarify their name and affiliation with MaxBotix Inc., in forum posts.

    To answer the post…

    From the datasheet: Filtered Operation - Free-Run The HRLV-MaxSonar-EZ uses an internal 2Hz bandwidth filter to process range data; which reports the latest range every 100mS or 10Hz. This improves the sensor’s performance for accuracy, noise rejection, and reading to reading stability. The filtering in the free-run operation also permits additional acoustic and electrical noise tolerance

    You should use triggered operation (Pin 4) to receive the fastest update rate. This will remove some of the advanced filtering so the 1mm resolution may not be as accurate or stable.
