Pepperl+Fuchs M100/MV100-RT/76a/95/103 Thru-beam sensor

The Pepperl+Fuchs ML100 series is characterized by its miniature housing with integral, all-metal threaded bushings. All versions are equipped with a visible red transmitter LED. This greatly simplifies installation and commissioning. The switching states are easily visible from all directions thanks to the highly visible LEDs.


  • Miniature design
  • Easy to use
  • Very bright, highly visible light spot
  • Full metal thread mounting
  • Highly visible LEDs for Power ON and switching state
  • Not sensitive to ambient light
