Pololu Distance Sensor with Pulse Width Output, 50cm Max


Pololu's compact lidar-based distance sensor is a reliable tool for detecting the distance of objects up to approximately 50 cm away. Utilizing a pulsed signal akin to a hobby servo control signal, the sensor encodes the measured distance into the length of each high pulse. This makes it possible to time the length using a digital microcontroller pin. The sensor operates effectively over an input voltage range of 3.0 V to 5.5 V. Its 2.54mm pin spacing is compatible with standard solderless breadboards and 2.54mm perfboards, making it a convenient addition to your toolkit.

Although the sensor can measure up to 50 cm, it's important to note that this maximum range is achievable under optimal conditions, specifically for high-reflectance objects in good ambient conditions. The range may be reduced when measuring lower-reflectivity targets or operating under poor ambient conditions. Therefore, the sensor provides the best performance when used in well-lit environments with high-reflectance objects.

Pololu's distance sensor offers numerous benefits. Its compact size makes it easy to incorporate into various projects without taking up much space. The sensor's compatibility with common breadboards and perfboards also makes it user-friendly and versatile. Whether you're a hobbyist, a student, or a professional, you'll find this sensor to be an invaluable tool for your projects. Its unique lidar-based technology ensures accurate and reliable measurements, helping you achieve the desired results in your work.

From robotics to automation systems, Pololu's distance sensor proves to be a highly useful component. It can be used for obstacle detection in robotics, distance measurement in automation systems, or even for simple DIY projects that require accurate distance measurements. With its easy-to-use features and reliable performance, this sensor is an excellent choice for anyone in need of a quality distance measurement tool.
