1) To 98% of the set value

All technical data are specified for units with standard equipment at an ambient temperature of 25 °C (77 °F) and a line voltage fluctuation of ±10%. The temperature data is determined in accordance to factory standard following DIN 12880, respecting the recommended wall clearances of 10% of the height, width and depth of the inner chamber. All figures are typical average values for series devices. We reserve the right to alter technical specifications at any time.
