Notes:

1) Where measurement conditions have not been specified precisely, the conditions used were an ambient temperature of +23°C +73.4 °F.
2) 50 mA max. if 5 or more standard types are connected together. (25 mA in case of 2-output type)
3) In case of using the quick-connection cable (cable length 5 m 16.404 ft) (optional).
4) If display adjustment was conducted, it is not in this range.
5) Number of sensor heads which is possible to be mounted closely in auto interference prevention function depends on response time as shown in table below. Number of sensor heads which is possible to be mounted closely in different frequency Interference prevention function is up to 3 units.
