The temperature compensation sensor for the Maxbotix sensor doesn’t interact with the Mayfly at all. It’s connected directly to the ultrasonic sensor’s pin #1, so the Mayfly doesn’t need to know anything about it. All the Mayfly does is capture the serial data that comes from the sensor’s data pin.

I’ll be away from my desk most of the day doing remote sensor station installation, but when I get back to my lab I’ll try to take some pictures of the wiring setup for my ultrasonic stations and post those along with a description of how to hook up the cables.
