How accurate is it?
Have a look on DIST-Nx-v2-User-Guide.pdf at http://www.mindsensors.com/index.php?module=documents&JAS_DocumentManager_op=viewDocument&JAS_Document_id=21
Long Range: 30 to 140 cm (with highest precision in zone 40 cm to 90 cm).
I think I once read of an accuracy of +-2mm but I can be wrong.

You better ask someone of mindsensors.com. They surely have experience and can answer that.
