Do you mean page 3?Have a look at page 5 of the datasheet.
Ah, I see it now. I didn't see the page numbers at the edges (I only looked at the bottom) so I was referring to it as being on the third page of a five page document. But the pages ARE numbered, they are just numbered, 3, 4, 5, 28, and 29.I see it on P5.
Max.
Where does it say that the current for a resistive load can only be 25% of the rated current?The picture was generic (I just grabbed it off eBay). I was just curious about what was inside the block diagrams. Looking at the datasheet you guys pointed to, it says that the rated current is for a resistive load, but the current for an incandescent light (also a resistive load) can only be 25% of the rated current.
Or were you just pointing out that an incandescent light is also a resistive load?Where does it say that the current for a resistive load can only be 25% of the rated current?
It says that the rated current is FOR a resistive load. For an incandescent light you need 4x the nominal current of the light.
Isn't 1/4 equal to 25%?Where does it say that the current for a resistive load can only be 25% of the rated current?

I did some quick math to get 25%! And that was for an incandescent load, not a resistive load (but an incandescent load is a resistive load - kinda). If you could ramp the voltage to an incandescent load, you might be okay, but since these are only ON of OFF, the inrush current would eventually kill them.Where does it say that the current for a resistive load can only be 25% of the rated current?
