*1. When using a 24-VDC power supply voltage, there will be an inrush current of approximately 0.5 A.
     Allow for this inrush current when turning ON and OFF the power supply to the Timer with device with a solid-state output,
     such as a sensor.
*2. DC ripple: 20% max.
*3. The power consumption is for after the Timer times out in mode F2 for the H3DT-N and mode A for the H3DT-L.
     The maximum power consumption is given, including the current consumed by the input circuit.

Relation between H3DT Ambient Temperature and Mounting Interval (Reference Values)

The relation between the ambient temperature and mounting interval is shown in the following graph.
If the Timer is used at 55°C or higher with a mounting interval that is smaller than that shown in the following diagram, the temperature inside the Timer will increase, reducing the life expectancy of internal parts.

Item Model H3DT-N/L
Input Start Functions to start timing.
Output Control output The output is turned ON/OFF according to the operating
mode when the value that is set on the dial is reached. *

* If the INST/TIME switch on the front of the Timer is set to INST, relay R2 will operate as instantaneous contacts and will turn ON/OFF in synchronization with the power supply.
