xapmcsSonar is an xAP connector using the RS-232 interface mechanism to measure distance using EZ1 ultrasonic sensor made by Maxrobits. This is intended for robot applications but could find many uses for distance measuring from 6 inches to 20 feet. xAPBSC V1.3 schema is used.

The connector provides control via RS-232 RTS and DTR discretes to manage power on/off and ranging. Signal processing provisions can also be specified to tailor the application. Note that this sensor also provids an analog output for applications where an analog rather than serial interface is desired such as for use as a 1-wire sensor.
