SIG Signal (I/O pin)
The PING))) sensor has a male 3-pin header used to supply ground, power (+5 VDC) and signal. The header may be plugged into a directly into solderless breadboard, or into a standard 3-wire extension cable.
Practical Considerations for Use
The PING))) sensor cannot accurately measure the distance to an object that: a) is more than 3 meters away, b) that has its reflective surface at a shallow angle so that sound will not be reflected back towards the sensor, or c) is too small to reflect enough sound back to the sensor. In addition, if your PING))) sensor is mounted low on your device, you may detect sound reflecting off of the floor.
Target Object Material
In addition, objects that absorb sound or have a soft or irregular surface, such as a stuffed animal, may not reflect enough sound to be detected accurately. The PING))) sensor will detect the surface of water, however it is not rated for outdoor use or continual use in a wet environment. Condensation on its transducers may affect performance and lifespan of the device. See the “Water Level with PING)))” document on the 28015 product page at www.parallax.com for more information.
Temperature has an effect on the speed of sound in air that is measurable by the PING))) sensor. If the
temperature (°C) is known, the formula is:
= 331.5+ 0.6 ( ) × TC m/s
The percent error over the sensor’s operating range of 0 to 70 ° C is significant, in the magnitude of 11 to 12 percent.
This article helps you to make PING))) based range finder on breadboard. First of all, you have to make arduino programmer on breadboard. You can follow the following circuit configuration for transferring ardiuno on breadboard.
I am quite sure that you can make your own programmer seeing the given picture.

How to make arduino programmer on breadboard.
Now, insert the PING))) module on the breadboard and connect the SIG pin to DIG9(Pin 15 of Atmega328 chip). When you bring any object near to module, the LCD displays the distance between the module and the object.
