NEW PRODUCTS – 7 types of Maxbotix Ultrasonic Rangefinders!


We really dig the Maxbotix sonar modules. They’ve got every kind of interface option, solid construction and are super easy to use. We made a little more space here in the Adafruit factory for 7 more flavors of the module – including the new “Hi Rez” HRLV modules with 1mm resolution!
