What kind of problems may occur if the set current is below the “minimum applicable load” for a basic switch?

ID: FAQE20025E



Below the minimum applicable load for a basic switch, the contact surface is more susceptible to the chemical coating formed due to the influence of the surrounding environment, leading to potential contact failure.


The “minimum applicable load” described in the datasheet is the load condition that is confirmed to be opened and closed at the reliability N level, and is not the guaranteed value.
Durability is affected not only by load conditions such as current and voltage but also by the operating environment and stroke settings.
Please evaluate it based on the environment, actual equipment and actual load before deciding whether to use the switch.
