1 - Based on: 105°C rated or better cable of the largest size, Properly calibrated APP 
     recommended tooling, and a 25°C ambient temperature. UL rating not to exceed the 
     maximum operating temperature. CSA rating below a 30°C temperature rise.
2 - Limited by the thermal properties of the connector plastic housing.
3 - Without use of spacers to increase creepage and clearance distances.
4 - Use APP recommended tooling only. Alternate tools may adversely affect the performance 
      of our connectors along with UL and CSA recognition.
5 - Tested with contact part number 5900.
