*1. NS5-TQ series (high luminance TFT) luminance is better than that of NS5-SQ series by about 110 cd/m2.
*2. Contact your nearest OMRON representative to replace the backlight.
*3. This is the estimated time before brightness is reduced by half at room temperature and humidity. It is not a
       guaranteed value.
       The service life will be dramatically shortened if PT is used at low temperatures. For example, using the PT at
       temperatures of 0°C will reduce the service life to approximately 10,000 hours (reference value).
*4. Lot No. 15Z0 or later of NS5 models.
*5. This function does not indicate that the service life has been reached. It detects when the backlight is not lit due to a
       disconnection or other errors.
       Backlight error detection indicates that all backlights (2) are OFF.
