    Operating Voltage Range (VDC)
    4.5 to 24 VDC
    Supply Current mA max
    6 mA max
    Output Saturation Voltage, mV max
    400 mV max
    Output Current mA max
    25 mA max
    Operate Temp Range °C
    -40 to 125 °C

    I saw this specification of a sensor. Kindly let me know what "Output Saturation Voltage" mean?

    Saturation voltage likely means that the output voltage when the sensor output is low and sinking 25mA of load current will be 400mV maximum.
