18mm Plastic Cylindrical Ultrasonic Sensor, 508mm Detecting Distance, 40mA Max. Load is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precise, forgiving sensor!I was originally using a photoelectric sensor to determine if a metal plate was present or not, but the smallest change in angle or even how shiny the surface was caused issues. This sensor does the job great. It's forgiving in that it will work fine if I angle it significantly, it even detects reflections off of another object. (I aim it at the table at a 45deg. and it works just as reliably to detect my hand or object reflected off the table.) The sensor is easily taught a close and far range either with the teach button or by holding the white wire to the blue wire for 4 sec. and then showing a close limit (then touch white to blue 1sec) and then far limit (then touch white to blue again 1sec.) It also has a very narrow 'beam' so I can mount it right against a wall and it will 'see' straight without the wall causing disruption.You can test it and set the range with a 9V battery and the lights make it easy.Also, to clarify is that this sensor does NOT have the M12 4 pin quick disconnect connection as shown in the picture (hopefully they are changing the picture). It has a 3m cable directly linked to it with 4 free wires at the other end. Here is the same with quick disconnect:
