Uses for ultrasonic transmitters

  1. Ultrasonic receivers come in a pack with the transmitter. I use the
    receiver in a bat detector project - does anyone have any suggestions
    of uses for the transmitters. Every time I build a bat detector I have
    a transmitter left over.

    Is there essentially a difference in the design of the transmitter? Could
    it be adapted to function as a receiver?

    Many thanks,
    Philip

    Use the transmitter to keep the bats away.

  3. Use as Bat Detectors ;-)

    - Most transducers work both ways, maybe not well, but often well enough.

    I was surprised to learn that this holds for LED's too and I could use that
    for a circuit using a single fiber for bi-directional communication (when
    fiberoptics was expensive).

    Make a back-up warning thingy for your bumper like on those over priced
    luxury cars.

    I tried it with a red LED and got many mV. With a green LED nothing
    happened. I haven't tried a blue one.

    For best results use the same color for transmit and receive. They are very
    frequency sensitive.
