*1. An inrush current of approximately 9 A will flow for approximately 5 μs when the power is turned ON.
*2. Complementary Outputs
       The complementary output has two output transistors (NPN and PNP) as shown at the right. These two output
       transistors alternately turn ON and OFF depending on the high or low output signal. When using them, pull up to the
       positive power supply voltage level or pull down to 0 V. The complementary output allows flow-in or flow-out of the
      output current and thus the rising and falling speeds of signals are fast. This allows a long cable distance. They can
      be connected to open-collector input devices (NPN, PNP).
