*1. DC ripple rate: 20% max. (A single-phase, full-wave-rectification power supply can be used).
*2. Do not use an inverter output as the power supply. Refer to your OMRON website for details.
*3. Models with 24-to-48-VAC or 12-to-48-VDC power supply have inrush current. Caution is thus required when turning
       ON and OFF power to the Timer with a non-contact output from a device such as a sensor. (Models with an inrush
       current of approximately 50 mA and a 24-VDC power supply are available (the H3CR-A-302 and H3CR-A8-302).)
       For details, consult your OMRON sales representative.
*4. The values are for when the terminals 2 and 7 and terminals 10 and 6 are short-circuited, and include the
       consumption current of the input circuit.
*5. Refer to your OMRON website when using the Timer together with a 2-wire AC proximity sensor.

H3CR-A Specifications 10

Reference:
A maximum current of 0.15 A can be switched at 125 VDC (cosφ = 1) and a maximum current of 0.1A can be switched at 125V DC and L/R = 7ms.
In both cases, a life of 100,000 operations can be expected.
The minimum applicable load is 10 mA at 5 VDC (failure level: P).
