Supply Voltage and Current 24V ac/dc ±20% Power Consumption:approx. 3 VA / 3 W
Supply Protection Circuitry Protected against transient voltages and reverse polarity
Output Configuration

Each normally-open output channel is a series connection of contacts from two forced-guided (mechanically linked) relays, K1-K2. Contacts:AgNi, 5 µm gold plated
Low current rating:
Caution:The 5 µm gold-plated contacts allow the switching of low current/low voltage. To preserve the gold plating on the contacts, do not exceed the following max. values at any time.
Min. voltage:1V ac/dc Max. voltage:60V Min. current:5 mA ac/dc Max. current:300 mA Min. power:5 mW (5 mVA) Max. power:7 W (7 VA) High current rating:If higher loads must be switched through one or more of the contacts, the minimum and maximum values of the contact(s) changes to the following.
Min. voltage:15V ac/dc Max. voltage:250V ac/dc Min. current:30 mA ac/dc Max. current:6 A Min power:5 W (5 VA) Max. power:200 W (1,500 VA) Mechanical life:50,000,000 operations
Electrical life:150,000 cycles typical, @ 200 W (1,500 VA) switched power, resistive load
Note:Transient suppression is recommended when switching inductive loads. Install suppressors across load. Never install suppressors across output contacts. 

Output Response Time 35 milliseconds
Input Requirements Input switch must have a normally-closed contact and a normally-open contact capable of switching 5 to 50 mA @ 15 to 30 V dc.
Reset switch must have one normally-open contact capable of switching 5 to 50 mA @ 15 to 30V dc.
Max. external resistance between terminals S11/S12, S11/S13, S21/S22 and S21/S23: 270 ohms each.
Simultaneity Monitoring 2-channel operation:3 seconds
1-channel operation:infinite
