Single Probe VS 2 Probe Ultrasonic Sensor


Looking for an ultrasonic sensor for a project, and came across ‘SEN0352’, a single probe ultrasonic sensor. While I could benefit from the compact size of the module, are there any general disadvantages to these types of sensors compared an ultrasonic sensor with 2 probes.

Thanks in advance


Hi Jimmy,

Welcome to the forum!!

The biggest disadvantage is the increase in complexity (behind the scenes), and price.
Running a sensor like this requires more complex code for the driver and can take up more pins.

The minimum range will also be a bit higher but can be compensated by building a mount.

If we can have a bit more context about your project we might be able to help more!
