FarReach v3.1 (obsolete)

Create a huge presence. Ultrasonically senses distances of objects, persons, walls from 0.15 to 12 m (0.49 to 39 ft.). Is invisible to the audience. Not suitable for low volume sound installation. For a silent distance sensor that measures upto 6.45 m (21.2 ft.) try the Advance-645.

Application examples

  1. Use for distance measurement relative to a wall or presence detection of objects and persons (it cannot detect the number of people present).
  2. Combine with a TapTiled floor, some MoveOn and/or ReachClose sensors and make sure every move of your visitor has an effect. Perhaps the TouchStripOn is useful for additional coverage on walls. The Flash + SeeLaser combo allows you to implement break-beams that could indicate borders or thresholds.

Weight 150 g (5.3 oz), incl. cable
Cable 5.0 m (16 ft), shielded, red wire = power, uninsulated wire = ground, black wire = sensor output, maximum extension 25 m (82 ft)
Connector male plug with a row of 3 pins spaced 2.54 mm (0.100 inch)
Application notes
  1. multiple FarReach 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
  2. any indirect echoes of the ultrasonic pulse (eg. from the sidewalls in a narrow corridor) may generate incorrect sensor output values
  3. not suitable for low volume sound installations due to ultrasonic pulse which is audible as a click
  4. do not connect the FarReach plug reversely to the Digitizer, because it might blow the fuse in the Digitizer !
