Hi..i am a new user here. As per my knowledge in the datasheet, it warns that different target sizes will result in different range measurements, even if they are at the same distance. Basically, there is no filtering or target size compensation. The MB7389 model that I use is specifically designed to measure water level, so it has a special filter that returns the largest signal (the water surface), so all other sources of noise and reflections are ignored.
