Note: 1. The above values are for steady-state currents.
           2. Inductive load: Power factor = 0.4; time constant = 7 ms.
           3. The lamp load has an inrush current of 10 times the steady-state current.
           4. The motor load has an inrush current of 6 times the steady-state current.
The rated values are for testing conducted under the following conditions.
  (1) Ambient temperature: 20±2°C
  (2) Ambient humidity: 65% ±5%RH
  (3) Operating frequency: 20 times/min
