*1. An inrush current of approximately 9 A will flow for approximately 5 μs when the power is turned ON.
*2. The code is as follows:

Output code Resolution Code No.
BCD 360 0 to 359
Gray code 256 0 to 255
360 76 to 435 (gray after 76)
720 152 to 871 (gray after 152)
1024 0 to 1023

*3. The maximum electrical response speed is determined by the resolution and maximum response frequency as
       follows:

E6F-A Specifications 5

* This means that the Rotary Encoder will not operate electrically if its speed exceeds the maximum electrical response
  speed.
