Question

What is the "operating time"?

Answer



The operating time is the time from when the rated voltage is applied to the coil, until the time when the contacts operate.

With Relays that have multiple pairs of contacts, if there are no other conditions, then the operating time is the time required for the slowest pair of contacts to operate.

The operating time is given for a coil temperature of 23°C or higher. The bounce time is not included.
