7012 Switch Card Maximum DC Current.

Post by THX1138 » January 25th, 2012, 8:59 am

I am looking for information about the DC current capacity of the 7012 4x10 matrix card. I found in the documentation
a specification of 30VA for the contact current rating. I want to be sure this is correct, for example at 5 volts dc you could have a max current of 6 amps ? Thanks...

The Model 7012 can handle up to 110V and up to 1A. But at maximum of 30VA.
This means you cannot route a 6A signal through the card. It can only handle 1A.
Or if you have 5V it still can only handle to up 1A.
