Create awareness of your surroundings. Ultrasonically senses distances of objects, persons,
walls from 0.152 to 6.45 m (0.500 to 21.2 ft.). Is invisible to the audience.
Completely silent to the human ear, hence it is suitable for sound installations.
- Use for distance measurement relative to a wall or presence detection of objects and persons
(it cannot detect the number of people present).
- Combine with a
sensors and make sure every move of your visitor has an effect.
Perhaps the TouchStripOn
is useful for additional coverage on walls.
The Flash +
combo allows you to implement break-beams that could indicate borders or thresholds.

- upon power-up, the sensor performs a distance calibration, so if anything is closer than 35 cm (14 inch) it can cause close objects to be ignored
- multiple Advance-645 sensors can be placed adjacently where the spacing is determined by the maximum distance to be measured at which distance the ultrasound emission cones should not overlap
- any indirect echoes of the ultrasonic pulse (eg. from the sidewalls in a narrow corridor) may generate incorrect sensor output values
