Arduino supports Parallax's Ping, but not this one. If I buy it, were do I find information about the code needed to use it?

Interesting device and a great price. I took a quick look at the manual. Does the servo control function allow this sensor to commnand a servo? It looks like a very impressive sensor.

Has anyone used one with a PICAXE?

Yes. It does allow users to send serial command to control a servo. And Mr Miles has developed an Arduino library for this little sensor, and it should be very easy to use.

Can this thing work with Picaxe? If so this might be a good competitor for the SRF005 ! 


I decided for this ultrasonicsensor but i have a problem: I will change the mode (write on the EEPROM) and I want to use the mode 3(default mode1)

So I connected the sensor with my pc RS232 interface (programm docklight)

(my pc RS232 interface is an adapter for usb to RS232)
I tried to measure the command of docklight and I think it´s ok!

Baudrate: 9600 / Stopbit: 1 / Paritybit: None / Data bits: 8 / command: 0x44 0x02 0xbb 0x01 (mode 3) / Jumper setting: RS232
Connection: (RS232 <-> sensor: RXD <->TXD, TXD <-> RXD), sensor:GND, 5V

So i send the command to the sensor but i don´t get any information back to docklight and the mode also don´t change.

Has I forget something? Or do I something wrong?

Tanks for your help!
