Operating voltage Vs
Range of supply voltage which must not be exceeded or fallen below.
Permanent current Ia
Current flowing during continuous operation.
Residual current Ir
Current which flows when output is switched off.
Alternating current superimposed on direct current. The residual ripple from peak to
peak must not exceed the operating voltage limits.
Residual voltage Vr
Voltage, which is measured via load when the proximity sensor is not actuated.
Short-time current Ik
Short-time current which flows for a specified period and frequency.
Voltage drop Vd
Voltage measured between the switch output and the supply voltage (pnp type) or
between the switch output and ground (npn type) at maximum current load and
when the proximity sensor is actuated. © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 207 13. Technical terms relating to proximity sensors 13.4
