Note: 1. The above current ratings are the values of the steady-state current.
           2. Inductive load has a power factor of 0.4 min. (AC) and a time constant of 7 ms max. (DC).
           3. Lamp load has an inrush current of 10 times the steady-state current.
           4. Motor load has an inrush current of 6 times the steady-state current.
           5. The normally closed and normally open ratings of reverse hinge lever models are opposite to each other.
           6. The AC ratings of molded terminals are 125 and 250 V only.
           7. The ratings values apply under the following test conditions:
                 (1) Ambient temperature: 20±2°C
                 (2) Ambient humidity: 65±5%RH
                 (3) Operating frequency: 20 operations/min

Use the switch within the operating range.
