Explanation 1) The time limits given correspond to the maximum lengths of cord. / 2) The time limit is proportional to the length of cord, which can / be altered by turning the drum to which it is fixed. / 3) The 1st column gives the current at which the electrical and mechanical / torques are in a state of equilibrium. The following columns / show a 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 % greater current with corresponding / time limit. / 4) The primary current is obtained by multiplying the amperes in the / relay by the ratio of the current transformer. / 5) The relay is calibrated for 50 ~. The weight must not be / changed. Label
