Difficult surfaces detection
For simple plug & play connection to your PC or Mac an optional USB adapter is available. The USB adapter cable provides power to the sensor and data transfer to and from the sensor. It is ideal for evaluation and testing purposes and for making firmware updates to the sensor. It is also an essential item in case you require post-sales technical support.Get USB Adapter
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get the data stream from the ultrasonic sensor as well?
TeraRanger Duo outputs a stream of distance data from both the Time-of-Flight (ToF) and the Ultrasound sensors. You may read both data streams. By default the faster ToF sensor outputs data. When the ToF sensor cannot read distances, the Ultrasound sensor takes over. For additional information, please refer to the user manual.
Is it compatible with TeraRanger Tower?
TeraRanger Duo is not compatible with TeraRanger Tower. The major advantage of the TeraRanger Tower is the speed of data acquisition and the ultrasound sensor would have constrained this product to be far slower than it is today. Additionally, when in close proximity, the ultrasound sensors can suffer from signal cross-talk. Our TeraRanger Duo sensor contains an ultrasound simply as a redundancy measure for the rare situations in which Time-of-Flight might not be optimal.
