Duty Cycle (ED)


Assuming that one cycle is composed of ON time (energization time) and OFF time, the proportion of the ON time in one cycle is called duty cycle.
The duty cycle is calculated from the following formula:

Duty Cycle (ED) % = (ON time / (ON time + OFF time)) x 100



* If the usage is not conformed to the duty cycle of a product, the temperature rise of a coil exceeds the maximum temperature of the insulation class, and the coil can have a burnout in the worst case scenarios.
