Quick tips

When the product is used under a load smaller than the minimum applied load, repeated switching generates oxide film, which may lead to poor contact mainly during microload switching. The product must be used with voltage and current that should not be lower than the minimum applied load (reference value).

  • Minimum applied load example 5 VDC, 1 mA
