Function: MLV41-8-H-120-RT-IO/65b/98/103

The diffuse mode sensor with MPT technology combines the benefits of the triangulation principle with the measuring functionality of a distance sensor. The integrated measuring principle provides an extremely wide range of switching element functions in one device, along with a large detection range and a small black/white difference up to the final detection range. The sensor is equipped with an IO-Link interface, through which the measuring principle is optimized to the requirements of the relevant application.
