Note:The maximum response frequency is the value calculated below.
Maximum response frequency = 1 / (Turn on time+Turn off time)
Class of protection against electric shockOut of classification
Excess gain30%
NoteNote 1 : Where measurement conditions have not been specified precisely, the conditions used were an ambient temperature of +23 ℃ +73.4 ℉.
Note 2 : The output applied voltage should be the same as the supply voltage of the sensor.
Note 3 : Be sure to add a short-circuit protection (a fuse or a breaker) to the power supply input and the output..
In addition, use 3A or less fast blow fuse or breaker.
