Notes:
1. Ratings apply for single bars on edge operating in a 40°C ambient temperature with 50°C temperature rise.
2. A.C. Ratings are for frequencies up to 60 Hz.
3. ‘Free Air’ Conditions assume some air movement other than convection currents, and may be applicable for outside installations. ‘Still’ and ‘Free’ Air Conditions both assume no enclosure.
