Hi, I'm pretty new to electronics, but I got one of these MaxBotix rangers from sparkfun's free day and now I'm wanting to hook it up. I got pins soldered on the board and everything.. just wanting to make sure I don't mess it up..
The datasheet is at http://www.maxbotix.com/uploads/LV-MaxSonar-EZ0-Datasheet.pdf
My wondering is with the power supply. Is it safe to hook an Arduino's 5v output and ground to it for +5v and GND? Would that be too much current for it? I'm afraid of frying it... Also, I know that I will want to hook a PWM pin on the arduino to a PW pin... I'm just concerned about giving it too much power
