Definitions for "Load Current"
The discharge current delivered to a battery-powered device.
The discharge current provided by a battery or drawn by a battery powered device.
units = Amps/milliamps (DC) or Amps RMS/milliamps RMS (AC). The maximum amount of current that a proximity sensor will switch through its load. Load current for a particular device can be calculated by dividing the load voltage by the load resistance. Attempting to switch a higher load current than the sensor is rated for will result in sensor failure.
