Photoelectric Sensors with Measuring Function - A Distance Ahead

Highest precision and reliability when detecting objects!

The new generation of photoelectric sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs brings this objective much closer. The powerful sensor technology marks a breakthrough by combining standard sensors and the latest measuring methods to provide the highest levels of precision and reliability for object detection.

The distance information provided by the integrated measuring technologies offers many advantages. Measurements are recorded with high accuracy and evaluated immediately. This enables faults to be detected and eliminated. "Zero-defect production" is now tantalizingly close.

The photoelectric sensors are also extremely resistant to environmental influences and will master the challenges posed by your industrial application. Even in extremely challenging applications with stringent requirements, our intelligent sensors provide reliable evaluations - even when confronted with harsh ambient conditions and difficult object surfaces.

Realize your ideal application and gain a decisive advantage over the market!


High-performance technology that impresses at every turn - your benefits at a glance

  • Reliable and precise object detection with intelligent evaluation of the measured data

Two technologies, one pioneering concept!

Whether in the near range or for distances of up to several hundred meters – the combination of innovative measurement principles and photoelectric sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs delivers the highest levels of precision and detection reliability.

Multi Pixel Technology (MPT)

Multi Pixel Technology uses the proven triangulation principle and combines it with the measuring functionality of distance sensors to provide a low-cost, flexible solution for a multitude of sectors. No other technology offers greater reliability for applications over short distances.


  • Photoelectric sensor series R10x (R100, R101, R103)
  • Photoelectric sensor series R20x (R200, R201)
  • Diffuse sensor with measurement core technology, RL31 series

Pulse Ranging Technology (PRT)

Pulse Ranging Technology is an innovative process that employs a direct measuring method to measure distances from just a few centimeters up to several hundred meters extremely accurately. PRT permits precise, reliable, and unambiguous measurements with a high degree of repeat accuracy and short response times – regardless of any constraints imposed by the surroundings or the object. This advanced sensor principle makes genuine time of flight measurement accessible to a wide range of industrial automation applications.
