*1. The resolution is given as the minimum value that can be read when a ZX-TDA[]1 Amplifier Unit is connected. This
       value is taken 15 minutes after turning ON the power with the average number of operations set to 256.
*2. The linearity is given as the error in an ideal straight line displacement output.
*3. These figures are representative values that apply for the measurement mid-point, and are for when the provided
       actuator is used, with the actuator moving downwards. If the actuator moves horizontally or upwards, the operating
       force will be reduced. Also, if an actuator other than the standard one is used, the operating force will vary with the
       weight of the actuator itself.
*4. These figures are representative values that apply for the mid-point of the measurement range.

*1. The resolution indicates the variation (±3 σ) in the linear output (voltage output) when a ZX-TDA[]1 Amplifier Unit is
       connected. This value is taken 30 minutes after turning ON the power with the average number of operations set to
       1,024. The minimum value that can be read is 1 μm.
*2. The linearity is given as the error in an ideal straight line displacement output.
*3. These figures are representative values that apply for the mid-point of the measurement range when the Actuator
      provided is secured facing downward.
      - ZX-TDS10T and ZX-TDS10T-V: The operating force will be reduced if the Actuator is secured facing horizontally or
        upward.
      - ZX-TDS10T-L and ZX-TDS10T-VL: The actuator can be installed only facing downward.
*4. These figures are representative values that apply for the mid-point of the measurement range.
*5. These values were measured at an ambient temperature of 23°C.
