What is the blind zone, detection range, scanning range for ultrasonic sensors?

Terms associated with BUS

  • Blind zone
    The blind zone defines the smallest reliable scanning range of the sensor. There must be no objects or interfering reflections within the blind zone.
  • Operating scanning range
    The operating scanning range is the typical working range of a sensor.
  • Limiting scanning range
    For objects with good reflective properties, the sensor can also be used up to its limiting scanning range.
  • Detection range
    The detection range is measured using various standard reflectors.
