Pick-up and Drop-out ratings
Ratings indicate maximum pick-up and minimum
drop-out current limits. Pick-up is the current
through the relay coil required to close the relay
contacts. Drop-out is the current through the relay
coil at which the contacts open. A production
relay of a given rating will have a pick-up and
drop-out current within the rating limits.
