*1 When several units are connected, the ambient temperature requirement varies depending on the total number of units connected.
When 3 to 10 units: -10 to +50°C 14 to 122°F
When 11 to 16 units: -10 to +45°C 14 to 113°F
When connecting several units, be sure to mount the units to a metallic DIN rail. Make sure that the output current does not exceed 20 mA.
