Function: ML300-8-100-RT/79a/115/122

The ML300 series has a robust miniature housing and all the standard functional principles. Of particular note are the sensors with analog output, which return a value proportional to the distance. The 45° plug/cable connection ensures flexible mounting. An LED indicates a weak signal, e.g. due to dirt.
