The rated current is defined as the smaller value of either the current value when the inductance drops 10% down from the initial point or the current value when the average temperature of coil inside rises 20°C up from the initial point. Do not operate product over the specific max. current.
Please confirm before use because there is a risk of disconnection (open). When excessive current (inrush current) is flown by the occurrence of the transition phenomenon in the circuit of the electric charge and discharge. Also confirm taking the dispersion of the constants of other components on the actual circuit into the consideration.
Be sure to ground the equipment that measures the circuit with inductors assembled, etc. and to use a wrist band at the operation.
