40KHz Ultrasonic ranging module. Designed for incorporation in equipment, robots etc. Used to determine the distance to a target. Features high accuracy, non-contact, stable measurements in a simple 4 connection +5VDC module. Module "Pings" a target when triggered then outputs a logic pulse proportional to the distance.
Resolution: >0.5cm L: 1-3/4" W: 7/8" HT: 5/8" WT: .02

electrolytic capacitors can contain Ethylene glycol
Brass can contain Lead
flame retardant pc boards can contain Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA)
Aluminum alloys can contain Chromium
To put it simply we are a small company and do not have the resources to test every single part, so we list every thing as hazardous. Please recycle all electronic parts responsibly and under no circumstance eat, drink or smoke these parts and wash your hands after touching!
I bought two of these for an upcoming automotive project. Neither unit would trigger when following the info in the datasheet. The trigger pulse is actually a high-to-low transition and not visa-versa. After I discovered this, they work fine and will likely be suitable for my intended purpose. Five stars for the product, four stars for the incorrect info.

Lots of applications !
Built one for the garage for parking. Built one for the RV to measure distance in front for parking. Built one for a Stamp Robot. Works great and I have a few more ready for other apps.

The possibilities are endless with this sensor.
So far, I have used these sensors for two projects using Arduinos. 1. I have one set up to let me know how far Ive backed into the garage. 2. I made a Fast-Pitch game for parties. The sensor can measure the distance of a baseball between two intervals and then calculate the speed of the ball. Lots of fun.
