Function: ML100-8-H-100-RT/103/115a

The 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.
