1 NO contact 16A/250V AC. No standby loss. Modular device for DIN 60715 TH35 rail mounting. 1 module = 18mm wide, 58mm deep. Max. capacitive load 240μF downstream of rectifier (e.g. energy saving lamps and electronic ballast) or 120μF directly at the mains (e.g. shunt-compensated fluorescent lamps). Limiting resistor 12Ω, limiting period approx. 15ms. The starting current impulse of energy saving lamps, fluorescent lamps and compact fluorescent lamps is limited to 20A by short-time switch-on (approx. 15ms) of heavy-duty resistors (12Ω). The current-limiting relay is connected on the load side of the protected relay contact. Permanent load max. 1200W, max. switching frequency 600/h. Explanation of capacitive load specification: The specified max. capacitive load directly at the mains is the deciding factor determining shunt-compensated fluorescent lamps or conventional ballast, for example. Here the capacitor switched in parallel to the mains is the deciding factor determining the correct dimensioning per lamp. The specified max. capacitive load downstream of the rectifier is the deciding factor determining fluorescent lamp ballast or energy saving lamps, for example. An equivalent capacitance of 10µF per lamp may be calculated.
