The current switch is a self-powered, fixed set-point designed for applications that require an on-off indication of current flow. Current levels above the guaranteed full-on level will turn the output to full on. The Current Switch is recommended only for applications where the continuous operating current is above the rated full on level of 350 mA. Operation below this point will not drive the output device full-on and derate the output ratings. Connections can be made directly to items such as a PLC or electromechanical relay.
*Note that connections made directly to an inductive device such as an electromechanical supplied clamping diode for DC operation or a snubber network for AC operation.
