String of IR ToF sensors is modular and flexible

May 05, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Expanding on its TeraRanger line of lightweight infrared-based Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors, French startup Terabee has released the TeraRanger Multiflex, a modular solution for short range indoor distance sensing applications up to 2.0m.

The kit includes eight plug and play sensors on one flexible bus, making it easy to create custom configurations and to place sensors where needed. An array of calibrated distances in millimetres is streamed from the Multiflex Hub. TeraRanger Multiflex is available in two versions; Multiflex and Multiflex PCB. Multiflex has dust and splash protection covers and offers the fastest refresh rates, up to 50Hz, while Multiflex PCB has longer range, up to 2.0m. The whole kit weighs only 20 grams and is compatible with UART, I 2C and USB.
