A maximum current of 0.15 A can be switched at 125 VDC (cosφ =1) and a maximum current of 0.1 A can be switched if L/R is 7 ms. In both cases, a life of 100,000 operations can be expected.

I/O Functions

For details, refer to the timing charts on Catalog.

Inputs * Start signal Normally functions to start timing.
In modes A-2 and A-3, disable timing. In mode S, starts and stops timing.
Reset Resets present value. (In elapsed time mode, the present value returns to 0; in remaining
time mode, the present value returns to the set value.)
Count inputs are not accepted and control output turns OFF while reset input is ON.
Reset indicator is lit while reset input is ON.
Outputs Control
output (OUT)
Outputs take place according to designated operating mode when timer reaches
corresponding set value.

* The H5CZ-L8E[] does not have an input.
