Measure distances accurately and conveniently wherever you need to

During construction or renovation it is important that the distances are well and precisely measured. It does not matter if you are buying a new apartment and need to measure the rooms, or you need sensors for more advanced and professional applications. In our store you will find devices that will allow for precise and convenient measurements.

There are various types of laser meters available on the market, but a real electronics engineer and DIY enthusiast can make such a meter by himself. If you also think about it, be sure to buy a distance sensor. The distance sensors available in our store are of the highest quality and at very affordable prices, which allows you to design your own rangefinder, and the satisfaction of creating your own device is priceless.

How does the distance sensor work?

Distance sensors in our store are a large department - and it is hardly surprising. It is a very comprehensive and extensive category that includes many different types of devices. In Botland you will find various types of distance sensors: analog, digital or ultrasonic. While these devices differ in the technology used, the sensor mechanisms are relatively similar.

How does such a sensor work? The principle of operation is extremely simple. At the beginning, the emitter sends a wave of a given frequency, and when this wave encounters an obstacle, it then returns and is picked up by the sensor. The time of the return of such a wave is very important, because the signal reaches the detector even when there is no detected object within the range of the sensor. This is because the wave can reflect off different surfaces and interfere with the reading. If the signal returns to the sensor in less than the specified time, it means that the measured object was within its range, and if the time is longer, we assume that the reflection took place from the wall or machine housing.

Advantages of ultrasonic distance sensors – the newest technology

Among the various types of sensors, the most modern ultrasonic sensors are worth mentioning. Although they are susceptible to interference, ultrasonic technology and distance sensors based on such sensors have a number of advantages.

First of all, resistance to dirt, and even the ability to self-clean as well as the fact that they are irreplaceable in difficult conditions – all of these factors make ultrasonic detectors quite innovative and durable. Ultrasonic distance sensors can work under almost any conditions and circumstances. It does not matter what the current weather conditions are. It does not matter if there is dense smoke, dust or sand in the air. While optical sensors would work worse in such conditions, ultrasonic sensors are not susceptible to such difficulties. Moreover, distance sensors based on ultrasonic technology can - if equipped with special housings - work even under water. Check out our range and choose the right sensor for your system.
