Unique Modular Design
The TeraRanger Evo sensors consist of an optoelectronic sensing device (black module) as well as a choice of backboard (yellow model), which easily plugs-in to provide the sensor with its power management capabilities and communication link without the need for complicated wiring or adapters. Users can easily select the backboard that ideally suits their application and communication protocol. Backboards like UART, USB, and I2C are available.
For first-time users, Terabee suggests the USB backboard as it allows them to perform rapid tests on a PC with its graphical user interface. This arrangement is also essential for probable firmware updates in future.
Other backboards with industry-standard protocols and interfaces can also be configured to support the user’s application.
Build Personalized Multi-Directional Sensor Module Array
Multi-sensor applications can also be built with TeraRanger Evo 3m sensors. Users can connect up to 8 Evo sensors to Terabee’s lightweight PCB board, called TeraRanger Hub Evo, which allows them to rapidly prototype custom sensor arrays without being hindered by pre-programmed configurations. The TeraRanger Hub Evo also comprises a built-in sensor crosstalk avoidance system.
