Devantech SRF01 Ultrasonic range finder

The SRF01 is a single transducer ultrasonic rangefinder in a very small footprint PCB. Connection is to a single pin Serial interface. The serial interface is a standard TTL level UART format of 1 start, 1 stop and no parity bits, and may be connected directly to many controllers, such as the Basic Stamps or the PICAXE. Baud rate at power-up is always 9600, there is a command to change this to 19200 or 38400 baud if preferred. Up to 16 SRF01's may be connected together on a single bus. Like all our rangefinders, the SRF01 can measure in Cm or Inches.
The SRF01 can measure from 0 to 600cm (0-6meters).
