The HY-SRF05 is an ultrasonic emitter/receiver used to measure distance with a precision of ~0.3cm. It sends out a 40 KHz square wave signal that reflects on objects in front of the sensor. This signal is then read back by the sensor and the duration of the received signal is reflected on the ECHO pin.
|Supply Voltage||4.5V to 5.5V (VCC)|
|Supply Current||10 to 40 mA|
|Trigger Pin Format||10 uS digital pulse|
|Sound Frequency||40 KHz|
|Echo Pin Output||0V - VCC|
|Echo Pin Format||
Output is digital and directly proportional with range
|Measurement Range||2cm to ~4.5m|
|Measurement Angle||up to 15 deg|
Distance measurements can be made with microcontrollers in a straightforward manner:
You can find an Arduino Library with code here: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=106043.0
When the Echo Pin goes low, record the elapsed time from the timer and use the following conversion formula:
Distance (in cm) = (elapsed time * sound velocity (340 m/s)) / 100 / 2
Note: we divide distance by 2 because the sensor returns the round trip time, which doubles the distance measurement.
