Designed for indoors or clear weather outdoor operations, the HX7tr12-IP42 broad beam transceiver, times the flight of a longitudinal (ultrasonic) wave from itself to itself (echo) and from other similar devices within range. Time of flight, determines distance to the nearest object as well as distance to targeted points.  The hx7 transceiver is capable of serving as ultrasonic beacon, ultrasonic transmitter signal emitter or an ultrasonic receiver.

The orange lines represent the maximum distance. For example on the positive y axis at point 0, the distance is 16m, but where the 60 and 300 degree vector cuts the orange line the maximum distance is 16*4/6 or 10.7m; this is the low distance limitation for a spread of 120 degrees. At 150 degree spread the low distance limit is roughly 8m. (devices are tested to a spread of 150 degrees). ultrasonic positioning beam distribution map
