1. An inrush current of approximately 8 A will flow for approximately 0.3 ms when the power is turned ON.

2. The maximum electrical response speed is determined by the resolution and maximum response frequency as follows:

This means that the Rotary Encoder will not operate electrically if its speed exceeds the maximum electrical response speed.

3. No protection is provided against water or oil.
