*11 Refer to Conditions for operation, transport and storage mentioned in AMBIENT
ENVIRONMENT .
Please inquire if you will be using the relay in a high temperature atmosphere
(110C 230F).
* If the relay is used continuously for long periods of time with coils on both sides
in an energized condition, breakdown might occur due to abnormal heating
depending on the carrying condition. Therefore, please inquire when using with
a circuit that causes an energized condition on both sides simultaneously.
